“Top of the Bars”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

Good atmosphere. Great food and service. Highly recommended. Good barmaid (Hillary, I think, sorry if I've got name wrong). Knew our drinks by 2nd night. Good waitress/welcomer, little lass from Blackpool.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

Lamb Greek Salad was mostly lettuce with 2 Olives, 3 small cubes of Feta & 3 slices of tomato… Lamb was over cooked small cubes of toughness.

“Great bar to hangout”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

The bar was one lively place with so many people laughing and chatting. It was not peaceful so don’t expect some alone time here. The atmosphere was charged as people laughed and talked. The barman was wonderful and chatted quite a bit with us. The drinks were well priced and they had a large stock considering the place was filled to the brim. The food, apart from the drinks was also good. We tried mussels and loved it.

“Great food, excellent staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

Let's see. The Lambs Fry was mountainous and tasty. The beer and stout cold and very Irish. The waitress has a delightful Irish accent Hmm must be an Irish pub. They do it well very well. For a Maloney far from home this is why Aussies come to NZ to they get somethings right. This pub has atmosphere.
