I came here for an organised conference dinner and was totally disappointed with the quality of the food. The chicken was very very dry and bland. Also, when you order "steak with garlic chips"don't expect any type of potato to be on your plate.

Been in a few times for lunch and dinner and don't have one bad thing to say about the place. The food selection is great, everything you need from salads, vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and good meaty food. I've tried a fair few of them and must compliment the chef's as they sure do know how to cook. The only... More

This pub was close to our hotel but really not worth the effort. Food was so so, nothing special, but the service was the let down. We were seated at the rear of the restaurant and 20 minutes after we sat down for lunch two staff members started converting the tables around us (ALL OF THEM) and pushing them to... More

Came here for a friends graduation celebrations. It was packed but we had a table reserved near the back. The biggest problem was the heat. It was incredibly hot possibly because of all the people and the occasional breeze from the opening of the front door was a God send. As the night went on it did become a bit... More

I'd been recommended visiting here by a friend from Auckland and whilst it took a little finding, it was really worth it. Stone outside but timber within, there's a good range behind the bar and the food was lovely. The clientele was a mixture of groups, including a large family party having a celebration, and whilst I'm sure the place... More

Nice atmosphere, bit of heritage and very friendly staff. We were planning to eat elsewhere but changed our mind and decided to eat here. Definitely the right decision. The food was really tasty, decent portions and the ale is good too.

The Bluestone Room in Auckland is not an obvious choice for the passing traveller. The pub is tucked away between high rise buildings, making it slightly hidden. However, this place is surely to be recommended to any visitor looking for a enjoyable drinking pub. The place is great for drinks. The interior is pleasant, having nice cosy places for groups...

Great place to entertain clients and friends. A very good selection of food amd drinks. Lunch menu is good for the business meetings. The place has a function venue that can be hired for company and private events. Staff are excellent and service is amazing

Bit disorganised trying to seat us for dinner, food was a bit slow and wasn't that worth waiting for I'm afraid. Good place to grab a couple of drinks but not really that good for a sit down dinner with the boyfriend. Didn't rock my world
