You might be wondering why the name Noble 600 was
chosen? The name recognises the original 600 MSA Club members in the late
1890’s and early 1900’s when Prohibition was the order of the day. The
restaurant will be open to the public and is not just for MSA Members. We will
focus on a family dining experience and boasts three function rooms catering to
the needs of both the business and private sectors. The Pre-Opening Team
is currently creating a food and beverage offering and will cater to a number
of tastes at an affordable price. The journey to the rebuild has been an
arduous one with Covid – 19 impacting our progress but we are delighted that
Bradford’s and a team of dedicated engineers and architects were able to claw
back some of the time lost. A pre-opening team was also engaged and we are now
in the final stages of interviewing suitable candidates for both front and back
of house. The journey continues and we invite all our members and their friends
to join us every Friday night to learn more about the progress being
Remember we are the only locally owned bottlestore north of the river and have the best stocked bottlestore in town for all your supplies.
We have bottlestore vouchers for sale which can be used at any Super Liquor Centre outlet in New Zealand and make great gifts.
The members loyalty system operates in the bar and cafe as well as the bottlestore which means that every time you make a purchase in those areas you have 2% of the cost credited to your loyalty account but you must produce your membership card in order to qualify so we urge everyone to carry their card whenever on the Club premises.
The bottlestore accepts Ruralco and Farmlands members credit cards and all customers are welcome to use these if applicable. It is not necessary to be a member of the Club in order to use the bottlestore. Remember to click on the Liquor Centre icon on this site for specials which may not be advertised elsewhere.
We have free pool games every Sunday all day in our bar with all members and their guests welcome.
