A weird combo of ingredients on the Vege pizza, that surprisingly worked really well! I ordered a take away as I was tired and just wanted to eat and then go to bed! I ordered the vege pizza, which has cream cheese and chilli sauce on it. So strange, yet SO good. The girl behind the counter was really friendly,... More

We had been to Adelphi some years back, and went again in October 2016 with family. This time, we were disappointed! A few things had changed in these years, not necessarily for the better. Nachos were served as individual ingredients, not a completed made up dish. The vegetarian pizza was large....but listless. I did speak to the staff on duty... More

After a bad experience at another local restaurant, we decided to try the Adelphi the following day. Well what can I say. Staff were amazing, so helpful, food was well above expectations, so good we returned the following day, and the staff remembered our daughters vegan appetite, would certainly return and certainly recommend. Well done Adelphi for having such friendly... More

Seafood platter was awesome. Calamari cooked to perfection. Mussels sweet. Fish fresh. Very good value for money and the service was impeccable. We added the crayfish to make it a perfect night. Thanks guys couldn't have asked for more .

The Adelphi is definitely not a fancy dinner place. Order at the bar and your food is delivered to your table. Small but good quality wine. Really excellent service . Green lip mussels were the best we've experienced in NZ. Blue cod was also excellent.

We came here for dinner on a Friday night. Wasn't too busy and had a table in the window. 2 had steak and 2 had fish. Good size meals and cooked just the way we asked. Good value for a Pub meal.

We felt like a pizza night so we decided to order takeaways from Adelphi. We bought the deal which I thought was pretty good buy 2 get 1 free. We came home and digged in to finding mold on the pizza bases! We turned every single pizza and all 3 had them all. We couldn't help think that they probably... More

Tripadvisor have advised us ID#411244965 that your review is to be removed. This is the third time you have submitted this review which is incoreect and damaging to our business. I repeat our dough is made fresh daily and rolled for each pizza just before the toppings are put on and it goes in the oven. Absolutely impossible for mold... More
