“A cosy old world pub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We had dinner at this pub which was recommended by the motel manager. It is very Nautical in decore and if you love looking at 'Square Riggers' then you will be in heaven. We happened to be there on a big Rugby match, so it was busy and a bit rowdy and the staff a bit harried. The food was good and plentiful.

Great food at reasonable prices - seafood platter is a must. Beer and wines to suit all. Staff are friendly and welcoming. When I go back this is always first on my list.

“Comme ci comme ça”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We've been coming to the Ship and Anchor for about seven years now, on and off. We've seen in change hands a number of times (certainly the staff have changed).

It used to be very busy in there, most nights, especially in the summer time. The meals were well priced, enough variety for most tastes (we used to take people with us a lot).

The relatively recent overhaul (90% of the tat removed from the ceiling and walls) was a great improvement. The meals were cut down to a more manageable size too (not criticism).

However. We went in for lunch there a few weeks ago (the day of the hot rod meet in Orewa). There's no chicken burger meal on the menu any more. For those of us that don't eat red meat, there's really not that much at all that sounds nice. The chicken burgers that used to be on the menu were fantastic. As were the chicken snitzels (also notable by their absence).

The Boddingtons that used to be on tap isn't any more either. A great shame.
