After hearing amazing reviews my partner and I decided to Bike the track out to the Puketapu Pub from Taradale to experience the Pub Meals we had heard good things about. After resting for 3minutes or so and checking the menu we went up to order our meals. Before we could say anything Both myself aged 30 and my partner aged 29 were asked for ID. We Explained we were not buying alcoholic drinks but were told if we didn’t have ID we had to get off the premises. Not very welcoming at all haha. Thought it was a Joke at first but he was dead serious. I recommend to take your ID even if you don’t drink, there is a fine line on rules in this Pub. Kids will be served Soda if with parents but adults of our age will not be served soda or meals without ID and you will be told to leave the premises. lol. Crazy experience.

I have only been twice here but would dine again anytime. The food variety is great from salmon to lamb shanks. Price is very reasonable and the service is always friendly. Awesome little place away from town, and you can pop into the bar next door after your meal.

Six of us have been here as a group in May 2012, & again in October 2012.
Worth a trip out of town for. Really great food, at reasonable prices, and good service.

Plenty of variety, across all tastes. Reasonable portions. Nice relaxed atmosphere in small restaurant. Bar next door, or eat in the bar.

Look forward to eating here again.

Went with family for dinner. Decor not outstanding but given this is a country pub, is perfectly O.K. Apart from having to wait for the adults meals to be served(all meals were to be served at same time) the food was excellent. Very good standard of food & at great prices – will definitely go again.

Never been disappointed. Quaint little rustic pub off the beaten track but worth the drive. Lovely setting and great food. Trying to work my way through the menu, its that good.

Recently dined at this Restaurant and found Menu appealing and meals as good if not better than some competitors. Well priced and well presented. Certainly worth a visit. Booking essential.

We go to the restaurant at least once a week and have done for the past seven months or so. The meals are supurb! Our favourites are the roast beef; and the lamb shanks. Portion sizes are very generous, and the prices excellant and so reasonable. Desserts are great – the chocolate brownie being our favourite. We love the atmosphere – the staff are so warm, friendly, and welcoming. We feel totally at home there and so very very relaxed. The Pheasant’s Nest is by far the best restaurant we have both ever tried and we look forward to returning there for many more enjoyable meals.

Our Rascals dining group of about 20 has eaten here twice. The service was efficient and friendly, the portions generous and the food delicious. The situation itself lends to the occasion. We will certainly rfeturn next year.

My family dined here for my grandfathers 80th,the waitress was nice but was situated right in front of the cashier and a view of the kitchen, i must of seen 3 microwaves which is always a bad look, for my entre i had a shrimp cocktail,it was basically shrimp and salad with a nasty tasteless sauce from the supermarket.my grandma ordered the same for a main but found a LONG HAIR inside of it while eating,i couldnt see any hair nets.we complained and they didnt ask what we wanted they just bought another one out,food also got mudled up, waitress didnt write a plan.the dessert i odered sounded the best but looked plan.a dried chocolate cake, abit dry with no sauce!
