“Outstanding food, cheerful staff”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Incredible food! Tuna Melt was probably the best I've had, and the fries with cheese + gravy (yeah, you can build poutine) were seriously better than any I've had in Canada. Didn't drink anything, but the food was remarkable. Kudos to the chef!

“Favorite Pub in Auckland”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

This was the first place I went out to grab lunch and food when I moved to Auckland. First of all, they have a wonderfully priced lunch menu where you can get awesome things for just $10! Our timing was really poor because they had just gotten the orders from a huge private group right before we got there, so it took a long time for our food to come out - but they gave us very fair warning and we decided to stay. They felt so bad about it, they gave us a free round of drinks even though it was our decision to stay regardless of the wait!

Everyone who works there is Irish, so it's completely a Irish pub...of course. Great priced pitchers, and the bartenders are pretty nice. The bouncers are my favorite, they are great fun and big Maori guys. There is a pub quiz every Tuesday and it's great fun! We would make regular appearances of going even though we never came close to winning the beer tab prize. They even are kind enough to give some great bar snacks in the middle of the quiz. They have different events throughout the week to keep everyone entertained including some live bands. There's pool and a decent amount of seating. If you're going for any event, especially quiz night, I'd get there at least an hour to half an hour early to get a place to sit though.

Miss this place so, so much!

“Simple, Tasty, Good Vibe”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

I have been here a few times for pub meals and am always very pleasantly surprised with the size and value of the pub fare. The drinks are good and reasonably priced and there are always a lot of people there, definitely a good sign. I haven't stayed late at night, I can imagine it could get a little rowdy which is great... because it's an Irish bar.
