Delicious Sunday Roast. Large well cooked meal for a great price. Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Restaurant is clean and airy. Great ambience. Waiting staff are attentive. Didn't have to wait too long for our meal to be cooked even though it was quite busy. Definitely will visit again.

I've been lucky enough to have brunch here before, so it was easy to suggest going here again for brunch on way to airport. Great menu, great selection, excellent and quick service. I had the bacon and kumara hash it was delicious. Everyone in our group was suitably satisfied and I can't wait to go again.

Once we got here we knew we had been before and it was no different from the last time, The service is fantastic and the food is served in a very quick time, we had a bit of a hard time choosing from the menu and the bar tender offered us other options of our choice if we wanted them,... More

We've been to the Realm many times for their $7 breakfast which is always top notch and the service is friendly. Can't think of anywhere else in New Zealand where you could buy cooked breakfast for that kind of price. Well done, keep it up!

Ate here solely due to it being a few meters away from where we were walking - we were not expecting much from the description, maybe a typical pub meal but were pleasantly surprised! Cheap and big meals, the pizzas which we had were great. They have a deal for every night of the week, Monday was 2 for 1... More

A good simple spacious suburban pub with a very casual atmosphere, a good standard menu and friendly service.

Yes the decor is tired but in a city of hipster bars and swanky looking suburban restaurants, the realm is a welcome relief. Visit during wellington on a plate and you'll be glad you did. The $6 brunch is good idea but it's the slightly more expensive (gasp $14!!! Haha I'll have two) kumera/bacon hash with poached eggs is the... More

Let's get the one negative out of the way first - this bar has no character, and is pretty much a tired barn that you sit in; it is in dire need of an overhaul. In the winter or on a wet night this is particularly troubling, despite the fire burning in one corner in the winter. But if you... More
