Like another recent reviewer, we were staying at the Law Courts and decided to try the restaurant for both dinner and breakfast. In a nutshell, dinner was great. We both had the Porterhouse steak which was perfectly cooked and it came with the standard range of veges which appeared fresh (or well un-frozen). Even had the dessert, because it sounded... More

Excellent place to eat in the city. Food and service was outstanding. We went in for a quick bite to eat for lunch and enjoyed it so much that we returned later on for a drink and an evening meal. Food was great and well priced. Service was very good and friendly.

Warm atmosphere, free wi-fi. Perfect little spot to catch up on emails on a rainy day, especially if you enjoy good beer, pub food and appalling legal puns.

We wanted some veggies on our trip to New Zealand and found this place advertising their roast special. It was pork roast and they had the required veggies. We tried it and it was very good and plenty to eat. The staff was friendly and the food good enough....nothing extra special but decent food.

We were walking around town waiting to catch a train in the afternoon and by lunch time we were ready for a decent feed. We noticed the sign at the Lawcourts Hotel advertising the Pig & Pen Restaurant . The daily roast was a feature so we decided that sounded good . The place had a nice old world pub... More

The front of this establishment resembles a rather attractive London-style pub, and the billboard outside advertised discount meals at dinner time, so we thought we would give it a try. We were led to the restaurant section at the back, and my heart sank as we turned the corner and I observed a carpeted fenced off area that resembled a... More

The decor is fabulous, so it was a real shame there weren't more people there. We had a lovely meal off the rather limited menu, and it was good, solid substantial food. Worth a visit.
