Good Local is a gastro bar and Restaurant focused on providing quality food, service and value for money to locals.

With a lengthy background in hospitality, having previously owned businesses on The Strand, we are pumped to have moved to the suburbs where we can get to know our locals. We are locals ourselves, so it is exciting to be more involved in the community.

Good Local offers a range of Hamilton brewery Good George’s craft beer and cider on tap. We also have an off-license for the purchase of Good George’s famous squealers in case you’re heading off to a BBQ or want some of their fantastic beers and ciders to take home with you.

We look forward to meeting you soon at YOUR Good Local

  •   Had dinner here last night with friends. It's a popular place with a buzzing atmosphere. The staff are attentive and friendly. Our lovely waitress was sharing stories of her studies with us. We enjoyed our burgers and chips. Food is well priced and plentiful.

  •   You have to try this place, service superb and food equally as good. Great selection of meals and all four meals outstanding, I had the 'pie of the day', pulled pork and apple and as a pie connoisseur, this was one of the best.
