Friendly staff, great cider delicious food

Spent a peaceful hour or so eating here alone in the evening. Staff were so helpful and food and drink were great. Good for an informal night. It's a Sports bar with music, relaxed and family friendly.

My husband and I stopped here for a drink as we spent all day riding from Napier. The staff were helpful and had great service. The meals were fantastic. Size of meals were great as my husband is a big eater.

After spending 5hrs at the Museum we wanted a nice meal. We got it at Crowded House Bar & Cafe. Our meal was really tasty and washed down with a beer and a coffee. Very well priced and pleasant staff.

Need I say more! The best place to go to watch any major sporting event with their massive projector. Happy staff, and reasonably priced drinks. Turns into a club at about 11 on the weekends.

If you want a big meal this is the place to go. The burgers are amazing with good flavour. Good friendly service but they could of been a little faster in bringing the food out as it was not busy.

Wow new menu is such an improvement. Haven't been here in a long time and after tonight I'll be going back soon! Excellent service and loved the food. Shame we were too full to try dessert.

Wasn't sure about how it works down here so was a good experience at the crowded house. Had the brisket along with the apple pie. Great flavors on all. With the house dark spiced rum and cananda dry.

I've been to crowded house three times in the last 2 months, I cant get enough of the ribs! The food is always great, service good, atmosphere great, and a reasonable price. Would recommend for any relaxed occasion.

They feature BBQ and meats in a sports bar setting. The food is good if not exceptional. The service is excellent - friendly and responsive. This isn't fine dining with fancy recipes but if you want well prepared meals in a welcoming atmosphere this is the place to go in New Plymouth.
