nice food, a little inconsistent with things such as karaoke nights, though. However, it is a pretty good place to host a private party.

The Toby Jug is a great little pub with fantastic food and great service! My husband's nickname was 'Toby Jug', so the Toby Jug Inn was a place we had to visit while here in Auckland. I read the recent reviews and wasn't expecting much - but as it turned out we were pleasantly surprised. We didn't get there till... More

Well yeah the beers cheap and the $10 lunch menu is fine. Food is good enough for price and staff all good. OK for the boys but not the place you might want to take the missus or international visitors. Working man's pub basically.

Only pub in the middle of an industrial area, so they don't have any competition which shows in lack of quality and service which is areal shame as it had some potential. Not really how we want show case ourselves to visitors. Shame

Went in for an early dinner before the exciting Breakers game and was a bit disappointed with both the quantity and quality of food served. Very average at best!!!

We were staying at Heartland Hotel around the corner from here. Nice and close. Had dinner here and it was lovely. Reasonably priced food and beverages. Nice outdoor area.

We ate here on a Sunday afternoon after a flight from Los Angeles. We were there in the middle of the afternoon so there weren't many people in the pub. We ordered fish and chips and watched the All Blacks beat South Africa in the World Cup semifinals. The food was good, the beer cold and the prices reasonable. There... More

Went to the Toby Jug because it is about the only place to eat in the area. Sat down and ordered beers before ordering meals . 15 minutes later we were told that the kitchen had just closed because they had had a busy day. Amazing ...

Thanks to it's location just 5 minutes from Auckland Airport, Post Office has a truly eclectic set of locals. Post Office is perfect for all occasions, but especially after work drinks and food. We have a brand new menu with exciting gastro home made food offerings and a huge selection of drinks, both on tap and by the bottle. We welcome you in!
