Being away from home I have found the next best in meals. Mitchell's make it so easy. The staff are very very obliging and the meals are very reasonably priced, fresh and good size portions. Working and living away from home and by myself in Dunedin I enjoy popping into Mitchell's on my way home from work to partake in... More

Had the Christmas menu. Pros - cute touch with Xmas crackers on the table. Prompt service. Tasty pumpkin soup entree. Cons - Food was below average, but very generous portions. The roast turkey was dry and tasteless, plum pudding and custard tasted off. Overall, cheap but not worth it.

Came back to Mitchell's after 8 years living in Australia and nothing has changed. It is still the best tavern around, same friendly staff, same well priced great food and even still user friendly pokies. Thanks for a great time yet again.

This has to be one of, if not the best, pub restaurants in Dunedin! Great food and atmosphere....can honestly say I have never had a bad meal at Brian's ever.

We eat here when we pass through Dunedin. 3 courses & many mains to chose from. Last weekend I had the Roast. (Lamb or Pork) A large roast dinner for just $13. Have a beer while you wait for a short time for your meal. Or play on the pokies. The staff are very friendly. It is very popular with... More

We usually go to Mitchell's when we're in Dunedin. It is consistently good, the meals a great, fast, great service with a smile. Value for money is amazing. This place is always full, forget coming here if you haven't made a reservation earlier in the day. One of the few restaurants I visit that is consistently good in all aspects.

Had the lamb shanks. Was a good meal. Have paid much more for the equivalent food else where. All the staff I felt with were friendly. I would definitely recommend you pop in and have a feed. Bearing in mine this is a pub, the men's did need a bit of a mop, but this would be my only complaint.

Our group of nine was well fed and watered recently with good service and a bonus got to watch the rugby at the same time. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and the meal was quickly prepared and served. We got several different choices within the group, the portions were generous and enjoyed by all.

I can't rave enough about this place. Consistently great low cost basic pub food, with excellent service! The chicken & bacon salad is Devine as is the schnitzel and would be my pick of the old favourites. One disappointment I had this time is I had a fruit crumble for dessert which had been reheated in the microwave so had... More
