Our Story


The Thirsty Weta is your Local Otorohanga!


We are a vibrant wine bar and eatery, offering excellent service. The Thirsty Weta offers a full range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages with a wide range of local wines and beers. We have a second-to-none menu with homemade meals running all day and night. We offer hearty meals, quick bites and even takeaway pizzas — no matter who you are, we have something for you, for the young and young at heart.


Started by our founders Lisa and Troy Leather, the Weta has remained the local place-to-be for over 10 years. We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service, and with many events throughout the year including comedy, live music, and quiz nights, we make sure to keep everyone entertained.


Our friendly staff look forward to seeing you soon!
