Relaxing drink by the fire

Stopped here after a quick trip up Mt Eden. Great place for a relaxing drink and quick bite to eat especially by the fire on a crisp autumn day. Restaurant is more of a bar atmosphere with a relaxed feel. A large inside room with a mix of low and high tables and an outside area for smokers or... read more

There have been changes in this restaurant. I went here quite often in the last years. The food isn't as good as it used to be. But more quite on the veranda now that the trains are electrified. Still a good place to have a snack and a drink. But not for a fancy dinner.

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.

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.
