Had dinner with my partner. The beer was great had several pints, my partner enjoyed a cider or two. Unusual decor upturned lamp shades on the ceiling. Good standard food at fair price. Busy environment, with friendly staff. Will come again when next in Auckland

Great salt and pepper calamari, melt in the mouth perfection. Arancini balls were not good, very stodgy. Broccoli and cheese croquettes were very tasty. The service was good and the food arrived quickly.

This is an excellent bar to have a drink in. I have never had any food, but often pop in for a drink when passing. Goods beers and interesting decor.

Went here twice during our visit to Auckland as we were staying nearby. Excellent range of Mac's beers on tap, good service, nice atmosphere and good food. Seemed very popular with the locals as well. Free wifi. Would recommend.

We popped in with relatives before the All Blacks v Wales test match. Atmosphere is always awesome in this pub and there were lots of people heading to the same place as us there!

We waited over 30 minutes for our meal to arrive. Then finally our burgers arrived and the buns are cold. When we pointed this out to the waitress, she simply said that's how we serve our burgers.... Not only the food quality came well below standard, the attitude and service standard was simply poor.

Went here on Friday night. We did the grab one deal but the one on the night was different to the one we had booked. We had booked solely off the menu we had seen but the staff were very understanding and helpful and went out of their way to make sure it was all sorted. The food we did... More

The Northern Steamship is one of my favourite bars in the world - sounds silly I know - but the location in Brtomart is great, the interior is fun and unique, the beer is delicious. I love to drop in and have a couple of beers and bowl of fries.

Their choice of beers is fair and their pints are huge. The shoestring fries are delicious. Staff is helpful and international. The interior is nice and quite spacious. Will come here again.
