Went to The Bog on a short trip to Christchurch. Happy we came across this pub as the service was excellent, the pub was cosy and we ended up staying for food which was good value and decent sized portions. Great evening.

My husband and I had lunch at The Bog yesterday with my sister and her husband. It has only been open since March this year after being rebuilt from the earthquakes. The atmosphere was fabulous as was our delightful waitress. The menu had a good selection to choose from and pricing was the norm. I had the Bog hamburger and... More

Popped in for a Kilkenny after work. Bar Service was really slow. Folks in front said they has waitied 15 to get a beer. Found myself watching Gaelic football. Magnificent. Many devotees there taking in the spectacle. The Kikenny was very enjoyable and thought I would stay for dinner but the menu was average BOG. Better food elsewhere.

Our B&B recommended The Bog the night we arrived. There were 7 of us & our party included kids. Everyone was happy with their order & the beer was good! We enjoyed our meal so much that we visited again a few days later before leaving town. I agree with other reviewers that some staff is so-so & others are... More

My husband and I stumbled across The Bog in Christchurch, an Irish bar and restaurant, on a cool afternoon in March. The fish pie was among the best we have had, and that includes England and Ireland. The light and flaky crust was filled with various fish and a few vegetables in a savory sauce. The salad we ordered was... More

Ive visited The Bog twice in the past week, first with the wife on a Tuesday and then with a small group the following Monday. The Tuesday meal was a lot of fun, the local Irish band and audience sing along added to the ambiance. In the first meal my Guinness hot pot was exceptional and the garlicky sour dough... More

Had a blast at this bar. Great crowd, live music, reasonably priced drinks, fun atmosphere! We were with a group of Irish guys and this was their choice for an "Irish Pub"- can't go wrong :)

Regularly go to this pub, great bands, good crowd(sometimes can be over crowded) but face the same problem every weekend. The staff serving are so rude. Would not recommend attempting to pay using a card as the staff made it quiet clear it was a pain for them, they also make it quiet clear they don't like their jobs and... More
