The Pig and Whistle is an ideal place for lunch, dinner or an after-work drink with friends.  The bar stocks an excellent range of beers and cider on tap including New Zealand craft beers, plus a good range of New Zealand wine by the glass.

The Pig and Whistle features local bands playing live Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and additional solo gigs are put on over long weekends.

With 5 large hi-def screens and all the Sky Sport channels and ESPN, this is the perfect place to watch all the important sports games.  They can also record games at request.
