We went to this pub on Eat Street for lunch. Staff were generally disinterested, bordering rude. We ordered pasta and meatballs and fish and chips. Meatballs were very average and sauce was watery. Kids and I only ate half of it. Crispy batter on wife's fish was encouraging but unfortunately the fish lacked flavour. The chips were ok. The only... More

Choose to try somewhere different after enjoying a different eatery in Eat St. In short, shouldn't have. Waitress was disinterested & the food was average. Burger pattie was very dry, & the kids Spag was watery & bland. Won't be returning

My bad experience of eat street continued as I was ignored by the staff. The beer I had was great but gave up on ordering food after about half an hour and left. It was a shame as I was really excited about coming here.

We were planning to have pizza, which we were assured was good, but the waiter said, "We have great steaks". So the four of us (husband and two 20 something sons) had the steak. It was flavorful and tender and quite delectable. They had mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy and I had the sea salt and lemongrass(?) seasoned fries (chips).... More

A good idea to have all the food and drink establishments in one place - makes it easier to find somewhere! Good beer, a good pizza and friendly, efficient staff. Well done!

We had a late lunch after a floatplane trip yesterday. Brew was great, burgers fast and filling. But the beer was craft and great, the home of croucher beer and the blackboard had all the beers on tap that day. A very enjoyable afternoon and with great service, I recommend.

Strolled round the corner to Eat Street to find a decent local craft beer and found Brew by Croucher Brewing. Ordered the 4 beer taster slider and then we chose Pilsner and Summer Gold. Also had the fish and chip main that was more than enough for our meal. Overall great service by Mark and Jonno and a good place... More

Just ate at Brew on Eat Street... From arriving to leaving it was great. Crew member Mark was fantastic from the get-go... With beer recommendations/sampling and menu tailoring to suit our needs ... Best service we've had since we arrived in NZ a week ago. Food was good and reasonably priced (Chicken and Lamb) With lots of others to choose... More
