At Little Easy, these are the good old days. We’re not just talking about them, we’re bringing back the charms of yester-year, celebrating an easy going approach to life – reviving that ‘everybody knows your name’ vibe back to within the four walls of your ‘local’. It’s a take it easy way to be, a space and place to downside on distress, cut out the clutter and to remove the confusion. We pride ourselves on rustling up top notch hospitality with a strong focus on the bits many pubs forget to really think about – simple and approachable food and drink. We only use free range eggs, 100% pure NZ Angus beef, 100% NZ pork and chicken, locally sourced vegetables and bread that is baked just down the road. Our inspired twists on no-fuss Kiwi classics will keep you well fed and our drinks well watered. It’s a promise. Little Easy – you’re local.
