Terry and Donna are 5 star In hospitality and service always comes with a smile. I highly recommend going there for a game of pool and enjoying a refreshing drink they have a great range to choose from and Terry makes an awesome cocktail. So get along to the Sandpit Bar and chill out you wont be dissapointed. 🤙🤙

Terry was an absolute legend from the second we walked in. A massive poolroom with a huge projector screen showing the Superbikes set the scene. But the cheap drinks, music, great atmosphere and fantastic hospitality kept us there. If you're in Paihia and keen for a drink and a good time after the Main Street bars close, this place is a must visit! Would highly recommend
