The Good Home

Where the Story Began ....

December of 2012 saw the latest hospitality venture enter the New Plymouth bar and restaurant scene. David and Sheryl Stones wanted to open a restaurant and bar that people would feel “At home”. A homely environment, great wholesome food and wonderful service that would make everyone feel at home just as you would expect when you were around at friend’s or a mate’s place! And so The Good Home was born ….. The décor starts as you enter through a porch-like entrance and through the front door into the main area of The Good Home. It is like an extension of everyone’s home, with different areas of the bar created into different rooms of a home. And you can see its even got a mailbox at the front of the ‘house’!


Over the past few years, we have renovated our original villa to create the ultimate “home away from home” experience which boasts 7 different and unique spaces. From the existing Dining Room and Living Room, we have introduced a Lounge area to unwind after a hard day’s work, built in a Sports Den to watch the game and extended the Outdoor Yard to relax in the sun. We have developed a Kitchen Corner to grab a coffee and read the newspaper and most importantly we have made the Kitchen the hub of our house. Our Good Home family of staff look forward to welcoming you into our home as if you were one of our own!
