Best pint I have had in NZ, nice selection of British offerings, including some strong hoppy numbers (to which I am partial). Nice building and location. The most pubby pub I have been in yet; has made me realise most NZ pubs are actually bars.

This is a lovely pub that offers a good variety of beer but it's not very inviting on a cold day to get a drink. The pub was very cold and unwelcoming would have stayed longer had it been warmer.

Beautiful interiors, good beers on tap with an old fashioned style vibe. Chat to the landlord if you can, very passionate about the publican trade. Pop in if you can. No food tho.

Grand pub, best tap beer selection full stop. Friendly service and plenty of seating. Looking for a nice quiet spot for a beer and a break. We found it with the bonus of beer heaven! Cheers!

This is a lovely pub. Heaps of English beers, and a range of craft beers also. The décor is great, lots of interesting pictures and posters. The main bar is quite small, but I didn't visit the other areas.
