Visiting New Zealand with my husband and started our trip in Auckland. Checked reviews for Horse & Trap and we weren't disappointed. We had the roast park sandwich and corn fritters which were fabulous. Staff were so friendly. Highly recommended.

A great place to catch up with friends for a drink and bite. Friendly staff and relaxed vibe. The new terrace is a great place to spend an afternoon. Recommended.

We had a Saturday lunch catch-up with friends, it was great as normal ... The meals were tasty, a little small this visit but still enjoyable. The service as always was great (friendly staff, quick turn-around time on meals) and this is a bi-monthly meet place for us ... Love it, oh and a great place to watch live sports... More

Having lived near the Horse&Trap for the best part of 8 months I decided to pop in today for a spot of lunch. The Staff were welcoming as soon as I opened the door and very sweet. I'd been struck down with the flu recently and this was my first time out in the real world in a week. They... More

Really n ice pub food, and comfortable surroundings. Sunday night it was humming: lots of families, lots of retired people. Food was very tasty, I am not a great meat eater but the ribs were too good to pass up. Good choice, they were delicious, truly messy to eat! Bangers and mash went down a treat too.

We were walking by this establishment and we were all hungry and decided to stop. SO glad we did as the food was great and so was the service. Nice environment.

If you are looking for a good pub meal to share with a Groupon friends this is an easy place to go. Large tables in a spacious environment offer a friendly setting for Lunch or Dinner. Parking outside the door, a family friendly environment.

Ended up dropping into H&T on a Saturday with my wife and 3 mo. old for lunch. It was rather dead- only a few other tables being served and re-construction of the outdoor area underway. I had bangers and mash and a pint of Radler to wash it down... wow, one of the best bangers and mash I have ever... More

My wife and I needed a quick bite to eat before heading to a concert at the Powerstation and this place being a 5 minute walk and having a good name was worth looking at. The building is undergoing some significant maintenance work (earthquake strengthening) so wasn't at its best. The staff however were friendly and helpful and the food... More

The Horse & Trap is a stable of social relaxing. Like all the other people coming through the doors, we're sure you'll love the Horse & Trap just as much as we do! We're located in a 100 year old heritage site in Auckland's Timber Mill Country (Mt Eden) with exposed brick, big timber beams, and for all the Train-spotters, the new quiet Electric Western Train line. Reservations are encouraged but we're also quite happy for you to just casually pop in. Flick us a line: Email the Stable, give us a call: (09) 630 3055 or swing by the bar and say hi.
