Enjoy the warm atmosphere of one of Rotorua’s most popular pubs, centrally located in a classic piece of bold 1940’s architecture. 
The Pig & Whistle is a local landmark with a great history, a wide range of New Zealand craft Beer + Cider on tap, New Zealand wines, great pub food, and live entertainment every weekend. 
The full menu is available from 11:30am - 10:00pm every day and includes favourites such as the beef, bacon, and mushroom Burger, fish and chips, seafood chowder, slow-cooked pork spare ribs, New Zealand lamb salad, and the famous pigtail fries. No one leaves hungry!
The Pig and Whistle also has a retractable roof in the garden bar area, great for those summer months, and an open fire, great for the cooler days.
High-definition screens showing all live games. For visitors that need to stay connected, free wifi is provided.

The upstairs private function space can cater for 21st celebrations, birthday parties, wedding receptions, engagement parties, family parties, corporate parties, and more. The room has its own private bar and can hold up to 80 people standing with casual seating, or up to 45 people for a sit-down meal. A buffet menu or platters can be served.
