Pub atmosphere, lunch time visit was very quiet so quick pleasant service. Food was presented well , Seafood Chowder was the best my husband had had for a while, but some of the garlic bread was burnt black. Fish burger was huge.... and tasty.

All in all this is a great place to relax with a cold beer with friends - sadly the quality of food from the restaurant lets the place down - especially at the prices they charge

Had four meals and some drinks in the main dining area. Very busy, but the staff were attentive and all meals came out on time and well presented. Great beer selection and wines were very tasty! Highly recommend the Irish Stew and Seafood Chowder! To top off a great experience, it was nice to sit at the tables out the... More

My wife and I had the seafood chowder at this Irish pub in the middle of Rotorua, NZ. This was the best seafood chowder, by far, that we had during our stay in New Zealand. They also had an individual playing Irish sing-along songs which we joined in on. All in all, a very pleasant dinner.

The seafood chowder was the best I've ever eaten and we both enjoyed it. The garlic bread was just bread. But worth a trip to here to eat the chowder.

My husband and I stopped for a late lunch so he could get his addiction, a Guinness. He also ordered the Irish Stew with lamb and I had the salmon salad. Both were delicious and we enjoyed our meal while sitting outside on their patio. The service we received was A+. It is a nice change from our previous meals... More

We are out of sync here but WYSIWYG. The difference from two years ago when we visited is very marked. The building and furnishing is still interesting for a relatively modern build as are the many interesting wall mounted artefacts. The two members of staff (bar man and waitress) were friendly and cheerful. However the quality of the food was... More
