A very friendly pub/restaurant in Devonport, Auckland and well worth a visit . Run by Mark Brogan a Scotsman who understands service. His team are also excellent and the food is great. Reasonably priced and served with a smile.

We were wandering by and wanted to stop for a glass of wine. We started off inside but then moved to the tables outside. Great spot to people watch and enjoy the outdoor air. They also have an interior courtyard and service was very friendly.

With front tables for street appeal, a beer garden out back, inside tables and an upstairs terrace there's a place for everyone to order pints and grub. Good steak and chicken sandwiches, served with tasty homemade potato chips, which we washed down with a bottle of NZ Rose. It was a great pit stop to rest tired legs, after discovering... More

Good wee pub, handy location, friendly staff and good food. This is a good English style pub and we had a couple of meals here which were delicious. Lots of outdoor seating as well and very comfortable. They also have a great 2 for 1 deal on Wed which was a bonus. We would definitely go back next time in... More

Had lunch here last week, My husband loved the kingfish and mussels meal. Don't stop making that one please. I enjoyed the fish and chips with salad. The service was brilliant, one Irish guy was running the bar and tables very efficiently. AND even better when he told us the 2 for 1 deal was running. He was soooo great... More

Lunch with Grandma and two kids was a hit, with the staff very friendly and attentive. A good selection of meals to choose from, with very generous serves at reasonable prices, making it great value for money. There was also a good selection of wines and beers to accompany our food. Overall, a very enjoyable meal and a great place... More

Clearly a favourite for the locals. Popped in for an early dinner. Staff were very prompt, polite, friendly and helpful. We had a lamb salad, best I've had in ages. My partner had the lamb rack which he told me was superb. Food came out quickly too. The menu had plenty of choices catering for all tastes, including the drinks... More

Had a delicious lunch here. Ate probably the best chowder I've ever tasted. The mussels were perfectly cooked and tasted very fresh. The space is laid out like a traditional British pub, and looks like it could be a pretty cool spot to drink, too.

Every good town has a local like this to hang out. Keep warm until you feel like coping with the traffic. I just love listening to the cheery Irish accents. The food is great too. Order the big chips with your beer. Follow up with a meal or go home. Happy hour, cheap nights, pub quiz all there.
