“Nice Irish bar in a beautiful Scottish city in delightful NZ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

Nice bar. V friendly staff. We ate in the restaurant upstairs. My wife had the Dublin coddle... Loved it. I had the lamb shanks... Excellent.
The Bog is well worth a visit.

“Great Irish Stew”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

This pub is very interesting and full of interesting Irish memorabilia and pics of events from Irish history. The menu was not overtly Irish but the Irish stew was pretty good.

“Great Pub Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

It was a little bit expensive, but the food was fantastic (and huge portions!). Very friendly and central pub in Dunedin. Well worth the extra for the food.

“Great local”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

The Bog is great most any time of day and night. They have it all: food, music, sport and - of course - drink! My only complaint is that sometimes they have the music up louder than necessary - eg around 6pm when you're having drinks and a chat after work. I've been time and time again, and always am happy to come back!

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Stopped here for lunch while on a holiday in Dunedin. Really really impressed. Great service, clean and tidy and the food was brilliant. My burger was the best burger I've ever had and that's a big call.
