THE BUGGER INN
Fact: Kiwis love traditional Irish and English pubs. Apparently the only reason Kiwis travel to Europe is to see old architecture and visit a pub (or work in it). Well, have we got exciting news for you guys!
When our construction team were digging the foundations for the new Health Club they unearthed an original pub. Established in 1642 the pub, which had no name, was popular with local residents and early tourists. Indeed, we found a photograph of Abel Tasman leaning on the bar enjoying a pint of ale with some of the locals. Supported by archaeologists, historians, know-alls and general busy bodies our team have restored the old building and relocated it alongside the Clubhouse Restaurant. It was quite a tight fit and when Bert said- “we’ll never get the bugger in” we decided that’s its new name.
So, Ngatimoti now has its own traditional pub – The Bugger Inn.
