About The Roaming Giant

The circus was known to frequent Claudelands, bringing with it giant animals such as elephants, giraffes, and even the odd bear.

When not delighting the Hamilton Public, the animals often made attempts for their freedom with the hope of exploring the neighbouring Claudelands bush.

Old newspaper articles tell us that some of these attempts were successful - one detailing the disbelief a young boy experienced on his way home from school after coming face to face with an elephant doing its best to hide amongst the trees.

This is just one of the many accounts of the roaming giants that used to visit this area, and though sightings are rare these days, we've got plenty of room out back for them just in case.

Escape the circus out there, and wander in.

It was disappointing that there was only one salad on your menu - nothing there that works for a summer evening dinner

Went there last night for pre Xmas drinks with a friend. Initially looked after great at our corner booth. Then later I had to go to bar & wait for staff member to stop texting on their phone, before getting more drinks.

Lovely food but the venue was extremely loud so I recommend adding some sound acoustics to the inside of the building to make it more user friendly for the patrons.

Great service despite a big crowd in for pre event meals. Served quickly, meals delivered in good time & no rush to get through before the event. A well drilled team.
