A group of six sitting outside on the first still warm night in Christchurch . Disappointed that once we had chosen our food we were told we could only have food from the snack menu, it was only 7.30pm on a Saturday night. Surely it would not have been too much effort to supply a pulled pork sandwich and a... More

Hello! Sorry that you were told that you couldn't have mains at that time... It was due to the fact that we had a booking of 40+ in the dining room and had taken mains off over the bar to give the kitchen some time to get all the food out. Its very rare that we do this and I... More

We came here after reading about the craft beers and also tasty food. Walked in the door clearly not locals. People looked at us. Nothing more. We found a table and then after servers walked by 5 times went to the counter and asked about table service. What I really wanted to say was thanks for making us feel unwelcome... More

Hello there, I am really sorry to read this review and the experience you had at our pub. I sure you have taken the time to read all of our other reviews and notice that people often comment on the level of service rather than the lack of! We are a family owned and operated business that absolutely pride ourselves... More

We arrived here from a long drive from Dunedin and upon arrival were so very pleased with the room. Their boutique accomodation is separate from the pub itself and a lovely house with only 6 rooms or so. We got a complimentary drink and went for a drink and ended up dining there as well. The thing that made us... More

31 Taps and all New Zealand Beers. NZ makes some pretty good Craft beers and if you want to try a few, this is the place to do it. They had beers from both Islands and would have to say that the Garage Project beers compare with Dogfish quality. The food is very good their chicken wings are fantastic. The... More

From a kiwi kid who spend over 2 years frequenting the old pubs and hole in the walls in London I love enjoying a pint or 5 or meal at Pomeroy's. Great for the family or catching up with a couple of mates. Also one of the best places in town to catch a game of Rugby.

We've spent there last night and it was just great. This place lives! Full of people, live music, great selection of tap beers - actually 31. We were not able to taste them all, but all we've had were just great. They serve almost microbrewery beers. It was not overcrowded and price was just right - about $10 for a... More

Great selection of beers and nice old style atmosphere. One of the few old pubs to survive the earthquakes.

We ate in their restaurant as a family party and I can simply say that it was good on every count. Easy parking, good atmosphere, great service, good menu and lovely food. All our meals were delicious, especially the risotto and the quantities generous. Would definitely visit again. The bar itself was lively and maybe a bit noisy if you... More
