It was like being in any pub in England Ireland Scotland or Wales. This was a treat after a month away from England. There were Scampi Fries and peanuts for sale just like in one of the UK pubs. The Macs Gold Lager was very good.

There aren't many cafes etc offering veggy food but the Patriot does. We sat out on the pavement but there is a seating area at the rear. The service was good and the meals came fairly quickly. We had the veggy burger and trimmings and a chicken/mushroom pie. Good sized portions and very tasty. Good selection of beers and other... More

We had the scallops and prawns duo $22.50 NZ and the salmon salad $19.50 NZ. The duo was the winner. The prawns were huge and very flavorful. The salmon salad was loaded with salmon which was excellent. We sat at a table on the sidewalk to people watch and it was also a beautiful day. Service was great. Highly recommend... More

Had to have them while in Auckland. All 3 versions were excellent here - they are much larger than the ones in the US. The garden in the back was perfect, our waitress helpful in selecting beers and mussels and we were all happy as clams, I mean mussels!

My wife and I went for dinner while in Auckland. The menu has a good range of options and my wife very much enjoyed the green lipped mussels. I had the steak, Guiness and vegetable pie, with overcooked chips. The pie had plenty of steak filling and good flavour but was also very dry to the point I couldn't finish... More

Lovely place to unwind in the sunshine. Great beer garden round the back, and seating in front of the pub. Good beer and wine. Landlord said he had the best pies in the town, so we ordered two steak in Guinness pies, one with chips and one with salad. Pie was huge and well presented. The meat was a tiny... More

The Patriot Bar is a fairly standard pub featuring fairly standard pub fare. I had the beef and mushroom pie; solid if not superlative, about what one would expect. My wife went with grilled veggies that were also solid albeit a bit too heavy on the potatoes. A nice pint of the local beer figured prominently. The best part of... More

We stopped here for lunch on a day trip from Auckland. Good range of beers and lagers. Wine list very good. Menu extensive and meals we had were VERY large, neither of us could do justice to superb, home cooked food

Called in for a pint or two of Speights Ale after a day on Rangitoto Island. Atmosphere was fantastic and it was just great to sit back and relax. Looked at the menu and came back for tea as the Scallop and Squid Fajitas were absolutely awesome. I can see why it's a popular spot in Devonport

This place doesnt just do the ordinary pub fare. They have a chef who is trying to do that bit more. Good beer, great food and entertainment. Well worth a visit.
