Attended the pre st Patricks day Street party where they blocked off part of the road to make more room for partying. I hadn't been before so not sure what it is usually like but waiting 30 minutes for toilets and drinks really kills the fun. It was good until about 10.30 when the crowds really starting pouring in. Hardly... More

Simple menu, great tasting food. Establishment a little tired. We visited early in the evening with not much happening - advertising for live bands, music nights indicate that it might get more exciting later in the evenings. Staff friendly

Was nice to get some free nibbles. Felt the menu was a bit limited so decided to go elsewhere for dinner.

We often visit here on a Sunday afternoon to play pool with a few drinks then have a meal. Meals are typical bar meals but are tasty and good value. Portion sizes are generous. The atmosphere is good and you'll often find live music in here.

We called into McMorrissey's for a quick dinner with my husband and son. We have been several times before and always enjoyed our meals. However, this time the smashies were not up to their usual standard. Slightly cold and our meals were just average. Had better before, but we will be back in the hope that it was just a... More

Awesome venue when there's a good band on, everyone gets involved and usually a nice crowd. Bar people are friendly, but drinks are expensive! Can only really afford a once a month night out!

Stopped by here a couple times during my stay in Whangarei. Great Guinness on tap for good price ($9 NZ). Both nights I was there they had live music (one night was open "jam session"). Good times. Nice people..

There last night and the service was horrible I had to wait at least 20 - 30mins to be served at the bar. I have been going there for years and everything has changed for the worst I hope the next time I come it's not as bad
