Great place to begin the night. Plenty of seating and friendly prompt service. Always good. Lots of beers on tap showcasing the Macs range.

This is a great pub on the waterfront of Wellington. I booked a table before the Lions test, and was a brilliant start to the evening. Great service, great beer and food. A fantastic place for a quiet drink as well when there isn't a...More

Went here for Breakfast the morning after an all blacks/ lions rugby match. The staff were worn out and grumpy and really slow service. They had run out of caramel coffee. The floor was so dirty and sticky we all commented on how strange it...More

Definitely no reservation needed but if you want to make sure that you have a table you should send them an email. I hope that will help. Cheers
