Very busy night here, staff were friendly however. Slight wait for the food but this was acceptable. Atmosphere was good at first however a fight near the restaurant area almost ruined the experience (didn't help that there was little or no security). Food was a little dry for the price paid which was a common complaint from others at our table.

For a sit down meal it is nice like all the Speights bars. Not that great for watching sport though. Good outside area catches the evening sun

This is a busy place as it is near lots of hotel accomodationon in Bealey St. We found it to be rather noisy and just like an aussie pub. Wine was $8.50 to $9 a glass and the menu prices were also a bit high. $30 upwards for most meals, we chose to try and find a Thai restaurant which we felt would be better value. There is one in the other direction,(leaving the city on the same side) I think its called Bai Yok. Pretty good.

to lots of motels in the Bealey Avenue motel strip.
This pub always feels alive!.

A great place for a beer, to watch sport or have a meal.
The meals are typically massed produced but not all that bad and priced accordingly.

Nice friendly staff tend to draw us back each time we visit the South Island.

The food was good and the beer even better. Staff behind the counter were friendly enough and we even ended up taking part in their Monday night quiz night.
