Lively atmosphere

Visited this Irish pub on a weekend. Really enjoyed the live music and the bustling atmosphere. The locals were friendly and the food was varied and plentiful! (and good value for money). Would recommend this pub for an evening out in Christchurch.

good beer, good music, clean bathrooms, but a bit expensive and not much place to seat, ordering a drink after 9pm the week end is a sport !

Called in Saturday lunchtime, we had curry of the day (red thai chicken curry), roast of the day ( roast beef) and a couple of pints of Emerson's. Food was really good and tasty, and really well presented. Great selection of beer. Staff were really friendly too.

Great food, great staff, brilliant atmosphere! Sat next to the fire and ate an amazing chicken meal. Plenty Gluten free options which was great for me! Not too expensive, definitely worth it for what you get and plenty of options, something for everyone.

The service was fantastic and the food even better with a wide variety of foods to choose from. A highly recommend place to visit when going to Christchurch.

Wide variety on the bar menu was awesome. Tried calamari for entree and steak for main course with Guinness. Both the dishes are highly recommended. Finally, the ambience topped with live music makes it a perfect place for spending wintry evenings in Christchurch.

My husband and I went here on a whim because we were quite hungry. Our food came quickly, it was delicious and I would say it was reasonably priced for what we got. Our waiter was awesome as well. We will definitely be going here again.

Staff were friendly enough but they had run out of nearly half the menu. I had the Irish Stew, it was OK but I wouldn't rush back.

'The Bog' is a nice Irish restaurant with a nice atmosphere. The food was good but not great. There was some live music including a couple of guys on guitar, which was enjoyable. The food and drink prices are a bit expensive for an Irish Pub.
