Everyone's always friendly and the vibe is always fun especially in the summer. The pear salad when you add salmon wins every time for me and the wings are drool worthy!

Chicken wasn’t over cooked for once! Good job team. May I suggest you review your dipping sauces. And that you stop watering down the vinegar that’s already cheap as chips.

We have been here various times and never fully satisfied. Something is always wrong with the food wether we are eating in or ordering pizza to take away. We avoid this place now as we have given them too many chances. Such a shame.

Used to come here all the time and always loved it but tonight the wait staff were terrible! Spent whole night on their phones had to get plates cutlery and napkins ourselves after asking waiter. I work in hospitality but this was just shocking service!...More

Chalkboard tables, complimentary popcorn, Spacies, Doggy Deck, 10 taps of New Zealand Craft Beers and a great sharing style menu makes Wood Street Freehouse the local for all the family What is a Freehouse, we hear you cry? Unlike a tied-house, a free house is a pub that is owned independently of the brewery (or breweries) that supply it. As a result, a free house can stock whichever beers it chooses from whichever breweries it chooses. Free houses are rare, the majority of pubs in New Zealand are tied-houses.
