“Fabulous pub, restaurant and stopover!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Stayed here twice whilst traveling from the UK.
What an amazing place! Great beers, local wines and excellent food. Live music. We had a couple of excellent evenings.
We stayed in their accommodation next door. Absolutely fabulous. Lovely spacious rooms. Beautiful bathrooms. Excellent facilities. The breakfast, help yourself to their buffet, was one of the best I've ever had in a hotel.
Really great value for money.
The owner was really friendly and helpful. Great NZ welcome. Thank you!

“Great night out for a group of us”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

I was taken out (always nice if you're not paying) as part of a group following a major stagegate in a project we're delivering.

We all had a great meal with great food and wine - the beer was also good I'm told.

My lamb was excellent and the food the others had looked really nice. Lots of empty plates at the end!

Great atmosphere.

“Short pour :(”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Right, ok, i drink a lot. so i know when i am presented with a short pour, i know that a standard in NZ is 15ml and a double is 30ml. The rum i was presented with was, at best 20ml and i was told it was a double, this "rum" was then served with a full glass of Coke despite my assertion that a slash was ample. Instead of an apology i was given an excuse. POOR. Lost themselves a customer that spends $300+ on an afternoon drinking session; ask the Earl. Pole Sana.

“Pomeroys on Kilmore St ...best pub food in Christchurch!”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

We were staying in nearby Foley Towers & this was the nearest option for food on a Sunday evening.

We both have to say we were extremely impressed with Pomeroy's pub food, selection of beers & general ambiance!

I would easily recommend the fantastic 4 mushroom risotto & my partner the lamb ribs. The creme brulee & chocolate brownie topped off our fantastic meal. We were both VERY impressed with the quality and taste of all our food.

Staff were very knowledgeable & great at recommending various beers for our individual tastes.

We were only sorry it was our last night in Chch & we would not be able to work our way through the menu ..food & beer!

Next time we are in Chch we will be back ...thanks guys!

A real local pub scene! They've got some of the best beers of the country on tap, good pub fare and excellent live music almost every night of the week. My fav place in CHC
