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
