Good Food Guide - - Auckland -


Hallertau own­ers Steve and Hay­ley Plow­man have de­vel­oped a stylish, all-season in­door-out­door oa­sis where an im­pres­sive out­door kitchen hap­pily co­ex­ists with stain­less steel tanks of freshly brewed beer. Heated seat­ing is a god­send on colder days and a re­tractable roof keeps the court­yard com­fort­able all year round. Michael van de Elzen over­sees a menu far re­moved from typ­i­cal pub grub, where cur­ried cau­li­flower with smoked moz­zarella pizza sits com­fort­ably be­side the likes of grain-fin­ished scotch fil­let and mush­room but­ter, wood-grilled gurnard, rose­mary-rubbed chicken or toasted sorghum and goat cheese salad. Ser­vice is at­ten­tive and there is typ­i­cally live en­ter­tain­ment at week­ends.
