Background

Charlie Baxters, is a independently owned and operated free house. Specialising in the finest of craft beers of New Zealand and surround has to offer.
We have a 9 tap rotating system, which means there is always something new to try each week.

Located right smack in the middle of Ellerslie township, you would be forgiven if you walked passed and missed the place. The stressed, worn outer paint work may look out of context, bit once you pass through the doors the feel of the interior should transport you back to a cosy, homely cabin.

We aren’t just a craft beer pony, we have a grand selection of sprits, from your standard to the finer tastes.

Our food menu might be small, but don’t dismiss us for that. Our philosophy is to keep it simple. From the homemade seasoning on our fries to the crumb on our fried chicken and the hand made dough we use for our pizzas.

There is something for everyone at Charlies!
