My husband was hankering for a hamburger and the reception at the Palms recommended Vic's. It wasn't the best hamburger he would have in New Zealand but at the time it was pretty good. I on the other hand had green mussels for the first time(there would be others) - the mussels too were fine( there would be others). The pub was interesting very British like (I suppose the New Zealanders may not appreciate that comment) so it was fun - lots of beer on tap. Also they had "the house T-shirts" and we always like to pick up one of those. We had a good time here and it was one of the few pubs we frequented in New Zealand.

We didn't eat here but found it a great place to end the evening. A very friendly crowd, good selection of beers and wines and live music.

Great food and friendly service. The ribs were tasty, plenty of meat, the fries really delicious and the coldslaw crisp and yummy.

The only niggle - we were there over 4 hours through lunch and there was no check to see if we wanted another drink and/or dessert. In the end we had to go seek out both.

Our first visit to Vics and looking forward to many more.
