The Thistle Inn is an interesting place to visit for an evening drink. It's history begins in 1840, where it stood very near to the waterfront until land was reclaimed in 1876 pushing the foreshore further away. Check out the photos on the wall, depicting this. Some photos from early years and comparisons with how things are now.
There is a lot of old native timbers used and an interesting tilt of the building gives rather lopsided floors upstairs.
I enjoyed my pub food meal here, and with a nice atmosphere, had a good time. Nice place to meet friends, or just go alone.
