The SPE bar is a fair treck from reception, but when we got there we understood why. This is a rough, noisy bar with a strong local crowd, both sitting outside and in, who seem to use this as their local pub. We felt unwelcome and intrusive, though I did think that the pizza I had was huge and one of the best in Auckland and the auto was excellent. This is the only inexpensive eatery at The Langham and there should be something between the excesses of Eight and The Palm Court restaurants and this bar, particularly for those who want a snack but not in a bar. Not a happy experience.

This place is attached to the Langham Hotel, but is a good pub value alternative to the other restaurants. For 4 adults and 2 children with drinks our meal came to $260 - average $20/mains and $8 beers. Food servings were huge in size, puddings were more sugar than I care for but we did have kids with us....!

Service was a little slow tonight, but I blame that on a suggestion that the one direction boys were going to front for tea (they didn't), otherwise it was a good handy alternative to the dining at Eight (which is excellent but pricey)

The service was very slow because there was one bartender serving drinks and taking food orders. I had a steak and ale pie which was very small and was made with gravy out of a can.
