Great pizza, friendly environment

We had a light dinner here after a day of wine tasting and the atmosphere is cozy and friendly. The owner came over to chat with us and then offered up a free dessert as it was the specialty of the house. Thank you Neal!

Dropped in on the recommendation of a friend to find a authentic feeling Irish pub and a nice friendly space. Can seriously recommend both the Pizza and Guinness. Kilkenny also on tap. Service without fault, an all around pleasant experience

We tried the pizza and pint deal which is offered there every evening until 6pm. The pizza was the best pizza I've tasted so far in New Zealand! The pub is very cozy and friendly and I would fully recommend this pub to anyone who either likes irish pubs or pizza (or both :) )

Always have "deal of the day" specials out the front so my girlfriends got "kahlua smoothies" which were scrumptious and I got the "Pizza and pint" deal. The manager... More

A great little Irish pub in Picton, the beer is cold, and the sports are unlimited on the tv. What more could you want!
