This would be the first time that I was asked to surrender my credit card to obtain drinks and a meal. The apologetic wait staff explained that because of "runners" this was the establishments policy. I explained that because of previous card skimming problems I was reluctant to do this. He returned the card when I offered to pay by... More

Hello Macaranga. We received your survey card and appreciate the feedback. It has always been the policy of The Bluestone Room to ask for a credit card if items are not paid for at the time of ordering, such is the practice of many other establishments. Admittedly we have been a lot more relaxed when it comes to diners tabs... More

The Bluestone Room may be a bit hidden away but is a great spot to find. The food is outstanding and happy hour beer prices are icing on the cake. I had the steak which was wonderful and not typical pub fare. It is definitely a locals pub due to the hidden location but worth a search. The building is... More

Its a pub. You get a nice pub meal, a good selection of local beers and friendly service. What more do you want? Oh, and there is a historic well in the floor in front of the bar.

Visiting Auckland for a few days before our cruise and we asked where a good place was to get a beer and reasonably priced food and were told to right out the back door of our hotel to the Bluestone Room and Brewery which is on side street we were not disappointed. There was a good variety of tap beer... More

This pub was a very pleasant surprise. It’s comfortable and been done well; the staff were friendly and helpful. On this occasion we were just meeting for a few drinks before dinner elsewhere but each one of us said we’d be back.

We had a great first time visit here. Our waiter was amazing (ginger haired chap). He was very busy but managed to get to his tables without fuss and with a good spirit. It was comedy night and that was ok. They needed to turn the music down or off sooner to hear the early comedians. The food was a... More

Great lunch place, busy & friendly. Great to visit a bar with a good wine selection and the staff are conversant with the characteristics of your chosen sup - not feeling like an upselling, genuine great advice.

Where else in Auckland CBD can you vacuum down a steak for $10? This place is a hidden gem. Pleasant atmosphere and great location, excellent for downing a couple of beers after a long day in the office...
