“Wish it was our local!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Great stay here to finish off a three week trip in NZ.

Lovely room (and a surprise upgrade!) cleaned immaculately each day. Help yourself breakfast was tasty and ample supplies!

Steve the owner (and of adjacent Pomeroy's pub) was really friendly and helpful. The food and beer next door is amazing!! Some of the nicest we had on the trip, so if you can't stay here, at least eat next door!

Excellent! Would love it to be our local - shame it's the other side of the world!

Room Tip: We were in the Cantabury room which was lovely! But it is on the same side as the pub, so perhaps op...

Stayed here during a recent trip to NZ. Was upgraded to the Gardens room which was supposed to be a bigger room, so I would have hated to see the room I actually had booked. The room was small but cosy. The room was quite cold but the heater was fantastic. The bathroom was spacious. Free unlimited wi-fi was great.

The best thing about this B&B was the communal dining room where you could have breakfast when you pleased, and could talk or avoid having to talk to other guests as you pleased.

The downsides to staying here was the noise from the pub with the outside tables directly next to the dining room and numerous times of walking to the dining room to fill up a water bottle I found myself seeing the pub patrons outside. Returned during the day while they must have been servicing the room and the door to all the rooms were wide open and no one was inside our room. Although you can't access the rooms unless you are staying there (need your room key to unlock the front and back door of the house), still didn't really feel this was appropriate.

Besides that we had a nice stay at Pomeroy's.

Great spot to go and have a chill out drink with mates. My girlfriend and I went together and had a great time. If you hunt on both the dartboards you can find enough working darts to have a game or play the foozball table or watch some live music or just sample the awesome local beer until the cows come home.

Be sure to try the Emerson's Pale Ale and the Epic. Fantastic beer.

The food is great too and the general look of the pub is really warm and old school.

Avoid the house wines. Worth the extra buck to get something that doesn't taste like vinegar.

Pomeroy's is a wonderful B&B. The room was clean, comfortable and well-appointed (and quiet--see room tip). Moreover, the adjoining pub has excellent food (and great beers and wines) and is a good place to meet friendly Kiwis.

Room Tip: Choose a room that does not face the pub and restaurant. I stayed in the Kilmore Room and never hea...

Had dinner here on a Wednesday night and the pub had a great atmosphere, very cosy and inviting. The service at the bar was great, the bartender helped us select a couple of beers since we weren't familiar with any (mostly craft beers). We told him what we normally liked and then he let us sample about 3 different ones and we made our decision from there. The food was also exceptional. I had the smoked fish pie that came with a small salad and my mom had the bangers and mash. Both plates were quite large and filling. We also had the rum and date sticky pudding for dessert and again it did not disappoint. Overall it was a real enjoyable evening out!

We had a dinner with a large group on our one and only night in Christchurch. Awesome atmosphere on a cold night and a great menu. The food was delicious and they did a great job of getting most of the meals out together. This pub has loads of different beers on tap and the bar was crowded with loads of Christchurch regulars, and deservedly so. If I lived in Christchurch I think this would be my 'regular' too!

Lots of caricature - big bar area with memorabilia and a small restaurant to the side.
Check the gig guide to see whats on as far as live entertainment goes.
