Went with a group of Cantabarians. Had a fun evening. Food and wine was very good. For a busy place the waiter was attentive and onto it! Highly recommend and in a great location

I am a fairly regular visitor to No.4, but probably more so in the summer.. can;t beat the atmosphere, generally very good servcie, great beer and wines.. and Jugs of Pimms in the summer. The food is consistently very good also.

Went there for lunch on week end. Place was a little quiet but filled up quickly. We got sat outside on front patio which is covered and surrounded by plastic so as to block nasty wind that morning. Got looked after quickly and we picked from lunch menu which had about a dozen or so choices offering a variety of... More

Great atmosphere and selection of beers. Wednesday is cheap drinks which is always a plus. This bar is popular with the plus 40's and the Merivale cougars who are always hunting for there next prey. Situated in Merivale it is close to good restruants and other venues.

Our group from work came here to farewell a colleague. Beside the fact that there is not enough parking, side room the put us in was nice and away from the noise of the bar. That was the best part. The service, however, was lacking: there was only one waitress (in a room of 20) and it took her a... More

The restaurant is dark and, on a cold winters day, more heating would've helped. The service was friendly, but slow, despite it not being very busy. Twice when we asked for more coffees, we had to ask again. The food was only just warm enough and not very well presented for the price. We haven't been there for about 6... More

Have been here a few times and have ordered the kiwi platter, have they changed the menu? The platters we've had before had much more variety and great combination of flavours, the lastest one had ham, beef and a very flavourless prawn cocktail, there wasn't enough bread, the dips were so-so and in general was a bit of a let...

Went here several times to watch the RUGBY (either Crusaders or All Blacks) but it was either too noisy, too many people NOT interested in the rugby or the TV was off. Even once the place was closed for a Private Function. The prices were a little steep too, then, so I have NOT gone back Having got that off... More

I lunch here regularly with family and #4 is also my "go to place" for lunch when entertaining business associates from out of town. I find the food and service is consistent but feel the meals have taken a further step up the last few times I have dined here. Today lunch was superb, the smokey venison salad with blue... More
