Popped into Father Ted's for a beer; stayed for several. Friendly staff, brilliant singer and fair prices. And as in most NZ pubs, sport on TV throughout. Great night.

Spent my first evening in NZ in this place and had a great night. Good service, great beer and a very good live singer. Will definitely sink a few more beers here.
