It has come to our attention that great pubs are slowly becoming extinct these days, so we've modelled The Flying Moa, Mt Wellington, to feel as close to your natural habitat as possible: a New Zealand kind of pub that feels like home.

The Flying Moa is now open so come in and see us. Enjoy good times, great beer and tasty food in an environment where you’re always welcome.

Long before we were all on the dog and bone, news only got as far as the Postman would roam. And early Glenfield was no exception – with a local Postman who truly made his mark on this route. An amputee on an account of a timber saw milling tragedy, he was the type who refused to let life’s mishaps put him on the back foot. Fashioning a footless harness for his horse he ran letters between Birkenhead and Dairyflat and not a single dog nipping at his ankle flustered him in all of 16 years. So before the last leg of your journey home take a load off and enjoy our food and drinks – what ever you choose we know at The Postman's Leg you can’t put a foot wrong. Come enjoy the best address in town.
