“First time to Inch Bar”
Eclectic small bar Nestled away from the madness that is town, With Craft Beer from NZ and around the world, Live music, great local art. A Bar that celebrates conversation and banter. Come have a look. :-)

I walked into inch bar with a few friends, there was no one behind the bar, I looked outside to find the bar girl (red hair) having a beer with her friends. It took her a while to get up and serve us and when...More

Another lovely relaxed time at the Inch Bar. Meeting my cosmopolitan son for a beer, he had a no Alcohol German beer (which he enjoyed) and I my favourite Emerson's Bookbinder. It was very queer at 4om,so we sat outside in solitary splendour. This outside...More

This was our first visit to the Inch Bar. There was Sunday afternoon jazz plus a good selection of ales & awesome nibbles. Fantastic bar will be heading back next week.

The Inch is in the process of becoming a Dunedin Pub of note, with performances, interesting beer and colourful locals - a long time ago, I've been there when it's been so hilariously full the only place the singer could stand was on the bar,...More

Quite squishy but very cosy bar listening to live music. A relaxed mood with everyone there for the same reason. The drinks on offer were good, nice pinot and beer. Easy parking outside and to find the place as we were out of town visitors....More

Interesting atmosphere. Beer prices ($10) are too high and the selection is not diverse. No dark beers on tap, 3 IPAs that are way too similar. It was nice that they had good, hard cider on tap, but it was $11/pint:(

I went in for a drink with some friends and was charmed by the decor as well as the friendly woman behind the bar. She had an impressive knowledge of the local beers as well as some stunners from overseas. We all throughly enjoyed ourselves.

Dropped in for a couple of pints and stayed for five. Jonas the owner is an intelligent, if slightly anarchic, conversationalist. He serves great beer along with Voltaire quotes and his personal music playlist adds a certain 'je ne sais quoi'. This is now my...More
