Trendy, Lively, Great Service Pub

This is the place all the locals go after work because it has good food, service and beer. So many types of beer. My husband ordered a dark beer sampler. I really loved the vibe of this place.

if you are looking for beer with character then this is the place. A number of locally brewed beers that display a reasonable depth of flavour, and the food is pretty good too.

Would definitely visit again for a few drinks, however I personally found the food to be rather expensive. Even so, the food, I feel, was worth the money. You can see a lot of effort went into the meal, and the presentation was great. Overall, great night.

Pomeroys is, by a country mile, the greatest pub in Christchurch. It's more 'british pub' than hundreds of pub I've frequented in Britain. It's absolutely nailed the concept and is a breath of fresh air. Mainly craft beer, so the speights swilling set will hopefully be disappointed and stay elsewhere. The impressive thing about this pub is the sheer detail,... More

Great food, great atmosphere. I arranged group of friends to catch up BUT we were Overcharged by $50. Last member of our party had to pick up tab for 2 meals not paid for. Twice asked staff to recheck the bill but still made to pay. When I found this out I rang around and everyone had paid. I went... More

Can Pomeroys get any better? Staff are very friendly, the choice of (great craft) beers is excellent, good range of wines and the menu blows me out of the water every time. I recommend stepping outside your pub faves - although I will not deny myself the pork crackling - which they do very well but their more glam menu... More

If you're a beer or cider lover then you're going to really enjoy Pomeroy's. They have an amazing selection of drinks on tap and they present them well making it simple to work out what styles you'll like and therefore what you should order next. They do also have a good wine list for those not partial to what's on... More

We went here twice while in Christchurch and were not disappointed either time. The food is not cheap but really good. The selection of beer is mostly local and diverse. It gets packed though so get there early (they open at 3pm and say they are closed on Mondays but they are actually open Mondays as well in December).
