Very surprised by the quality of my dinner in this bar which is determined to be Irish. The chicken supreme was tasty and the accompanying roast vegies tasty and not overdone. Macs apple cider on tap another tick.

We popped in for a bite to eat after movies at The Palms. They had a $15 burger special on and seeing as I love burgers, I was tempted, but this time opted to go for something else instead. He had the steak and I chose the lamb rump. The place was pretty busy for a Sunday night, a good... More

Stopped here for a quick lunch with the girlfriend on a quiet Saturday. Quick service, nice food and felt like a real bar/restaurant. It didn't really have anything unique about it though, you get exactly what you expect.

The atmosphere was good the service a bit slow. I had pork belly which was excellent. My husband chose the sirloin steak at $32 compared to the $15 steak deal the meal was no better than the cheaper option. My son had the fish and chips the fish was very greasy and very tasteless.

Had a meal here on my own while travelling for work. Good food and service, I would say great value for money as it was a slight step up from your standard pub grub. Great steak!

Found this place by accident. Dined there two nights in a row. Very interesting decor, friendly helpful staff and a good range of bar meals, light meals and mains at prices to suit most budgets. Husband had oxtail soup and then fish and chips the first night and I had garlic bread with the roast vegetable salad. All delicious and... More

A perfect place to meet your friends, start your day/evening out or linger over a meal matched with a great range of top brand ales and a fine selection of wines. Open for lunch, dinner and brunch, our menu is well priced to appeals to a broad range of people, young and young at heart, locals and tourists, families, kiwis and international visitors.Bailies Bar & Restaurant originally operated out of the Cathedral Square Warners precinct for nearly 30 years and was a favourite destination for thousands of loyal locals, visiting tourists and guests of honour.Sadly after being damaged in the February 2011 earthquake, both the Warners Hotel and Bailies Bar & Restaurant was demolished in November 2011.
