Went in for an evening meal. Thought as it purports to be an Irish pub food would be great. I ordered a steak which came with chips and onion rings. When it arrived there was plenty of it but the steak was so tough I could hardly get the knife to cut through it. Onion rings where so greasy you... More

After visiting the sky tower we were in need of a beer. Father Ted's hit the spot. A full pint (not the fake jappo Scandinavian pints that New Zealand use) of Murphy's & a Magna's cider for $21.50 which I think for a full UK pint & in import beer AND being in Auckland was a fair price. Great guy... More

Great atmosphere and awesome beer. Alone ir in a group you should come to have a beer and watch some sports, listen some music, whatever. If you have some time, try as much beer you can. Don t forget a pint of Guinness.

Big filling breakfast on a budget. Great hot food served quickly and prompt. Live sport on before heading off to the nines. Would highly recommend if staying in the city.

Probably the best live music venue in Auckland! The craic is always great in here and the food is delicious. Get to know the staff, like all service staff, they deal with demanding idiots daily but once they're on our side, they're fun. There is always something entertaining on and they easily do the best Irish breakfast in the country

I stopped into this place in search of a cold pint and good food. My mission was a success. The staff were great, as was the food. It was a weee bit tattered inside, hence why I didn't give it a 5. I highly recommend it.

We had the roast of the day special & there was enough food on my plate to fed 2 hungry people! Delicious roast beef, taters, veggies, gravy & Yorkshire pudding.

This place is fantastic and I always swing by for a drink whenever I'm in Auckland. The food is great and the staff are always friendly but the highlight for me has to be the live music. It's the perfect mix of contemporary and old classics with an Irish flair. Drinks can be a bit pricey but it's worth it... More
