Our Place

Before brothers Geoff and Clayton Gwynne started McLeod's Brewery in 2014, they'd already put in a few years behind the scenes here at Waipu's iconic Pizza Barn. In fact, they've owned this iconic little hotspot since 2003.

And while the menu can never accused of being ‘high-end,’ that’s precisely the point. Here at McLeod’s Pizza Barn, we keep it as local as possible and always good. Think of it as ‘slow’ fast food. From hand-rolled pizza bases to house-smoked wings and ribs; veggie burger and fish-n-chips to our crisp, fresh salads - we want our food to make you feel right at home. With award-winning beer on tap (made right out back), you’ll leave with an eye on coming back soon. Cheers!
