The Woolshed Café

It's also highly likely some friendly sheep will be closeby. Frequent SH1 travelers may remember this site as home to the Old Manor, which caught fire in 2009 and had to be demolished. Owners Alan and Frances Parker had always admired an iconic black woolshed on Hawke's Bay's SH50, so were inspired to replicate it here in a café.
