Have visited this place several times as options for bars in the Johnsonville area are limited. Every time i visit the staff seem only interested in closing the bar early and going home. Guy behind the bar seems very slow and tired. Food is OK but its nothing fancy. Closes far to early and bar man seems frustrated when you... More

While meeting here for a business lunch for a party of 4, the first thing we noticed was after 10mns of sitting down, a gruff looking Male in mid 30s approaches us and asks are we drinking or dining ! He carried on to say before we had a chance to reply. ..... that if you just want to talk... More

A typical irish pub serving Irish beer and some irish food. Would like to see more Irish food on the menu and not just NZ pub food. My partner had a smoked salmon burger that sounded nice but the portion was really small and he was still hungry after he'd eaten it. I had bangers and mash. Sadly they were... More

Very good restaurant to enjoy real Indian cousin, a taste you get as if you are in India. The environment is very pleasant and the staff very prompt and with a smile all the time

It took me a long time before I ventured into the Innkeeper. I'm glad I did. It’s a friendly, popular pub, with honest charm. Everything a good local should be. The staff are genuinely friendly and welcoming. And best of all it is one of the few pubs, and by 'few' I mean pretty much the only pub I've found... More

Visited several times, and was not disappointed by either the quality of the meals and service. This is pretty much standard pub fare but they cater well for kids, which was relevant on one of our visits. Overall a pleasant ecperience.

We went there on a whim for date night. When we walked in the door it had a weird vibe but we thought this may turn out to be the best pub food ever so we chose to try it. We ordered wedges to start. Edible nothing strange. We had a steak sandwich and tried their burger recommended by the... More
