The Karioi room can accommodate up to 80 seated guests, this can be extended by utilising the Courtyard as an extension for outdoor dining and refreshments.

Hire of the karioi room for a wedding is conditional on the hire of the entire venue.

The Karioi room cost $2000 to hire. This is for a 36 hour hire, which allows time for set up the day before, so you can customise the venue to your theme.

Venue hire includes use of the courtyard, Sound System, CD/DVD player, Data Projector, 15 tables, 84 chairs and crockery / cutlery for 80 guests. You are welcome to bring additional hired dinnerware and table and chairs.

We provide catering for any event with a choice of menus to meet your requirements. Catering is by Colin Chung, former owner of the legendary "Vinnies" Restaurant of Raglan.(email)Colin Chung (ph) 07 825 8289. We invite you to contact Colin to discuss your requirements and seek a quote.

Alternatively you can arrange your own catering in which case there may be a fee for use of our kitchen cooking facilities and crockery / cutlery,

We are a licensed eating-house and as such can only serve food supplied by a registered caterer this precludes self catering. We are required to approve your caterer.


We have a fully licensed bar and as a rule our Bar Prices are no dearer than those of a standard public bar.

Our license limits outside or BYO alcohol on the premises, however BYO wine and non-alcoholic drinks are welcome. There is a corkage fee of $6 per bottle of wine.

There a minimum charge of $500.00 to cover the bar costs. This is not additional to alcohol consumed, i.e if the bar tab is $200, then an additional $300 is payable. If the bar tab is $600 then no extra is applied as the minimum of $500 has been spent.

Bar tab means the total spent by you and your guest including any corkage paid.


We have a sound system with IPod / Portable MP3 player jacks and a DVD player which are available at no extra charge when hiring the Karioi room.

Live music is also permitted by arrangement.
