Description: A Napier institution right in the heart of Napier has loads of character and is a great place to meet your friends, start your night out or linger over a meal matched with our best range of beers and our fine selection of wines including many local wines. Our menu is a fusion of Kiwi-Irish, well priced and we are well positioned in Hastings Street amongst the major central city shops and hotels, including our own Art Deco Masonic Hotel. The Rose appeals to a broad range of people, young and young at heart, locals and tourists, families, kiwis and international visitors.

“Great Irish Pub - well worth a visit!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

A warm and cosy irish pub, with a welcoming atmosphere and friendly service, "the Rose" was a welcome respite from a chilly day.

Great friendly service, lots of seating space & an impressive beverage selection!

It's also clearly a family-friendly place, with some younger patrons also enjoying their Sunday out - which is great to see!

I'll definitely be returning upon my next visit to Napier.

“Excellent Food and Service”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Called in here as a pit stop from shopping, typical irish pub setting, it is a bar mainly but the bar man was excellent, remembering our drinks, jokey etc, really good service and I ordered a ceaser salad and garlic bread for 4 which was godo value. The garlic bread was crispy and really nice (I don't like it soft) and ti came with dips, the ceaser for a pub meal was best I have had, certainly much better than one my friend paid twice the price for later that evening. These guys used coz lettuce, nice bacon and the dressing was good, it also had the soft egg, very hard to get this salad right so very impressed with this one and the service.

“Traditional decor.”

Had a drink, out of season so a little quiet.
Content of meals on menu doesn't reflect the names! Some good happy hour offers.
