The place to meet

FRIENDLY × RELAXED × LOCAL

 

The Helm is everybody's local

Cool, relaxed & friendly.

You'll find us within minutes of Waikato Stadium conveniently located on Hamilton's city fringe. We like to think we're close enough to the CBD while still only being a short trip home enroute to Te Rapa.

With a large open plan layout there is a setting to suit your mood.  Be that enjoying dinner in our cosy restaurant, watching the game on the big screens indoors (or out) or gathering al fresco under a canopy of fairy lights in our extensive garden bar.

If you're looking for somewhere with ample parking to enjoy a quiet drink, an after-work shout or if you need a special place to celebrate, we've got you covered.

We are pretty chuffed to pour Heineken on tap but if that isn't for you we also carry an impressive range of draught beers crafted in 'middle earth' NZ and all over the world, including a handpicked selection of award-winning wines and other refreshing beverages. 

But enough about us, we want to hear about you, so be sure to stop in after work, over lunch or before the big game...

We look forward to seeing you!

 

Psst...The Helm is super proud to be independently run and locally owned.

IN THE COMMUNITY

We are proud to support our local community by getting behind great local causes including...

  • Hamilton Homeless Trust (Provide, prep and serve food once a month)
  • Ricoh Golf Day supporting Child Matters
  • Waikato Master Builders Golf Day supporting Westpac Trust Helicopters
  • Hillcrest High / Vardon School / Hamilton Boy's High

Starting in 2016 we hosted our first Charity Golf Tournament with the proceeds going to three amazing causes; Angel Casts NZ, Huggable Hearts and Angel Gowns. in 2017 the proceeds of that tournament went to the Waikato Rescue Helicopter and in 2018 the proceeds went to Waikato Hospice. The events have been a huge success and we see no reason in stopping hence why we'll be doing it all over again in 2019!
