Great atmosphere and awesome beer. Alone ir in a group you should come to have a beer and watch some sports, listen some music, whatever. If you have some time, try as much beer you can. Don t forget a pint of Guinness.

Big filling breakfast on a budget. Great hot food served quickly and prompt. Live sport on before heading off to the nines. Would highly recommend if staying in the city.

Probably the best live music venue in Auckland! The craic is always great in here and the food is delicious. Get to know the staff, like all service staff, they deal with demanding idiots daily but once they're on our side, they're fun. There is always something entertaining on and they easily do the best Irish breakfast in the country

I stopped into this place in search of a cold pint and good food. My mission was a success. The staff were great, as was the food. It was a weee bit tattered inside, hence why I didn't give it a 5. I highly recommend it.

We had the roast of the day special & there was enough food on my plate to fed 2 hungry people! Delicious roast beef, taters, veggies, gravy & Yorkshire pudding.

This place is fantastic and I always swing by for a drink whenever I'm in Auckland. The food is great and the staff are always friendly but the highlight for me has to be the live music. It's the perfect mix of contemporary and old classics with an Irish flair. Drinks can be a bit pricey but it's worth it... More

Absolutely lovely little place to come for a drink or dine. The food is fresh and well cooked. The bar staff are very friendly and there's a general great atmosphere about the place. Well worth coming to while your in Auckland.

We weren't sure about this place before we went in to grab lunch. We did not have high hopes for the food but we were pleasantly surprised, place was very quiet but staff were friendly too.

friendly staff but they make your drinks first then tell you there is 2 options on the spirits.... and the drink they just made for you is the more expensive option.
