If you are a beer enthusiast how could you not love this place. This is the best bar in Christchurch. Serving craft beers on over 25 taps and in bottles, this is a great place to spend an afternoon or evening catching up with friends. Love the little nooks to sit in, this place has a great atmosphere. Meals here are really tasty or there is a great little bar snack menu if you don't want a full on meal. We always take out if town guests here, and they always ask to go back when in town next. 5 stars!

My husband and I were spending part of our honeymoon in Christchurch. I booked our room at the Pomeroy's on Kilmore which is a B&B associated with and located next door to the pub. This was perfect because we didn't have to search for a restaurant or a pub both where right across the alleyway and both the pints and the grub were amazing.

Twice we had dinner at Pomeroy's and twice they didn't disappoint. The beer selection which has rotating taps was phenomenal, anything could be found to suit ones taste. If we had been there longer I would have tried to get through every tap. But it was all amazing and nearly all local and the bartenders know about each beer and with just a little information they can point you in the right direction.

My husband couldn't get enough of the pork cracklings, and I loved the cheese dip. The menu also changes with the season, so they never lack for variety. They have music on certain nights and there are several different nooks and crannies to sit in if you don't want to be at the bar proper. If you get the chance make it a point to get over to Pomeroys. Your belly will thank you!

We had lunch at Pomeroys on a Sunday. We didn't realise they didn't open until midday so had to wait outside. It would have been nice to have a quiet drink and soak up the great atmosphere while we waited for the restaurant part to open. They offer 31 crafted beers on tap. The old world charm of the bar & restaurant area is well worth a look. The service was great and the food was wonderful. They got really busy so I would book in advance if possible. Thoroughly recommend it

I was recommended to go and visit Pomeroys Brewery while in Christchurch, what a gem. Beers so crafted to every taste required you just wanted to try every single one. Food of consistent quality, try the pulled pork or the roasted smoked pork belly, in fact try anything it's all great! Friendly and helpful staff and if you just visit on a busy evening be patient have a beer and then you be seated in no time. Don't miss this place you'll regret it.

Went for lunch with no booking. It was busy so I thought we might have to wait. Staff found us a table straight away - very pleasant. Great selection of delicious boutique beer - the pint of Epic lager was just what the doctor ordered! Had the Jalapeño cheese dip and pulled pork sandwich. Brilliant! Excellent food, excellent beer, excellent surroundings. New favourite place!
