Went here for a Sunday lunch -big group. Very impressed with the service and getting all the meals out around the same time. Meal was excellent and a good size . No sides required. All the meals where well presented. Second time we have been here and was still impressed.

Stopped in with some work friends for lunch. Looking at the menu my first thought was it's a little pricey for lunch but the food definitely quantified the price tag. I had the open steak sandwich which was cooked really well, lots of flavours that complimented each other and just the right amount. Would definitely recommend and come again.

Went here for lunch with family, 17 of us in total. The service was good, but a few of us were in happy with the meals we had. I had the lamb shank with mashed potatoes, the shank and potatoes tasted as though it was last nights dinner heated up in the microwave. The beer was good, but you just... More

Horse & Trap is a great option after work or before heading off to the movies or somewhere... The staff in the pub are great, so friendly, helpful and prompt in serving. The food is good - a bit above some pub type food! They are have gluten free options too which is big thumbs up from me.

Go for it! Although we have been there several times in the last couple of years, I last reviewed this pub/restaurant in December 2011 - probably time I updated it. Since then, a number of changes have taken place in management. My family and I recently visited again on April 8th 2013 for evening meal. Although no serious discount offers... More

This is a regular haunt for us and the staff are always friendly nd the food is consistantly good. A step above the average pub grub but still realistic prices with various daily specials. Decor is great with big open fires and a covered balcony for the smokers.

As we often do when visiting our son in Auckland, my family and I had an evening meal at the Horse and Trap. This large pub/restaurant, located between Auckland Central and Mount Eden serves good food throughout the menu and is very reliable for the quality of food at reasonable prices. A wide variety of Monteith beers on tap is... More

This was the second time we visited the Horse & Trap for lunch and both times my lunch was served last and near an hour after the first person was served - both times mine was a salad and the rest of the table had a cooked meal! Neither times was the place busy and only about 5 other tables... More
