We went on Sunday for the carvery with the whole family. It started at 12 and there was a choice of 3 meats and loads of vegetables. The meat was perfectly cooked and we thought it was great value for money. My daughter ate from the kids menu which was also really good as well with a bento box with wedges, meat, veges and a small piece of chocolate desert

Been a regular here for a number of years but unfortunately the standards have been dropping for some time. Service is hit and miss and the junior wait staff don't help when it comes to any issues or problems with the food. Beer is good but pricey but unfortunately the biggest issue has been the deterioration in food quality and inconsistency over some time.
The food is expensive for what is basically deep fried items and the same meal is never identical week to week. Items are often missed off the menu description when a plate is delivered, basic components are either under-cooked, over-cooked or raw, portion sizes are random and never the same week to week and someone within the kitchen has a liking for pepper (both black and cayenne) which over powers in a number of meals. The food used to be a lot better and if it were not for a weekly catch-up with friends, I wouldn't eat here out of choice.
This place could be a lot better and pub food doesn't have to be poor quality.
The prices being charged are equal with a lot of higher end restaurants but the quality and consistency are definitely not restaurant quality. Someone needs to sort this out.

Student son chose this pub for our family lunch so I was a little wary. Great parking and you walk in the front door into a Irish themed Pub which, though very large, has a nice cosy feel. Excellent front house service and food and drinks were prompt. Bar very accommodating as boys wanted to watch particular sports game on TV. The 3 teenagers chose burgers, myself the fish and husband the pork belly. No complaints on any meal. Good sizes and beautifully prepared. Would happily go back for another fish dish alone! Bookmarked as new go-to Pub in this area of Auckland.

Large portions for your pub food.
Really large selection of beer on tap.
The building itself is cool looking and had a really cool atmosphere.

We had a quick business meeting there and then had some great food.

They also had NFL games on. (The Sunday night game... daytime NZ)
