While in Queenstown a good place to stop in for an excellent dinner, reasonably priced, is Pog Mahones. There are daily specials - each a real bargain at $26: Thursday’s was any grilled item. I chose the venison and it comes with any two sides...More

Description
Pog Mahone's opened in its lakefront location in the heart of Queenstown in 1998 and quickly became a Queenstown icon. The Kiwi and Irish owners wanted to create an authentic Irish atmosphere and so designed and built the pub in Ireland itself then shipped it lock, stock and barrel to New Zealand. At Pogs you can enjoy a lively mix of modern and Celtic music (including regular trad sessions), friendly service and be warmed by open fires in both bars. On the inside it's guaranteed Irish but don't forget to try the sunny lakeside beer garden and balcony from which you can soak up some of New Zealand's most stunning alpine scenery! The menu offers authentic Irish cuisine complimented by contemporary NZ dishes and the world famous Stonegrill dining experience. We recommend you try our signature Beef & Guinness Pie or Irish Stew dishes.
