Description: 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!

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 8.30pm and doubted the kitchen would still be open but the staff were friendly and helpful and reassured us we could get a meal. We weren't disappointed! The menu had such a great selection that it was difficult to decide and all at affordable prices. We had the mussels for starters - they were probably the best I have ever had! The venison pie as a main meal was tender and absolutely delicious and the fish was moist and cooked perfectly. And what a great selection of beer. In short, go and visit and make your own judgment. Its a great little pub and well worth the visit. We will definitely come back before we fly back home. And yes, I did buy the T-shirt!

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
