Walking into this very impressive building, with it's micro brewery behind glass on the right hand side of the lobby, we wondered what we would see once we were inside but it did not disappoint. Extremely high ceilings, wood paneling, a wonderful welcoming feel and a lovely fire sitting under a giant mantelpiece makes for a relaxing start to a lovely night.
There are too many beers here to try in a month, let alone an evening, so there is something to suit everyone. For the non beer drinkers there is a wide range of wines etc.
The place was busy but not packed, and the staff very pleasant and helpful. The food was very nice and the service prompt. We had no complaints at all and will definitely be returning here. I highly recommend this pub if you are in Auckland. (Although it's a pub for adults, Children are also welcome here as long as they behave). Pub notice.

Galbraith's has been one of several places our mob chooses for a sort of impromptu, drop-in dinner. The beers are good and the menu has been varied, interesting (not posh, however) and of a good standard. Beer's still the same, but the menu seems to be creeping up price-wise as portions become smaller and the overall quality is slipping. Will probably give it one more go, but as of now it's tipped over the line: not good enough value for the overall experience.

If you're not eating, it's probably a fine venue.

We went as a family (three generations) for a casual meal. It was great, something for everyone , good pub style food with its own individual twist. The men reported, good variety of boutique brewed beer and a good selection of wine. Friendly helpful service. Lovely old building well restored. All round nice place. Maybe not the spot for quiet romantic couples dinner but fabulous for almost all other situations.

Mt Eden library now an English style micro brewery pub. Lovely inside, good range of real beers, not the usual Kiwi fizz. Recommend a visit here.

Always a consistent experience if ever there was a great local pub then Galbraith's would be it. This is an iconic Mt Eden pub situated conveniently at the top of Mt Eden Rd and on my bus route home.
Great craft beer brewed on site as well as a range of other local beers with some knowledgable staff and good bar food to match.
