In the Octagon. Typical Irish pub - great food, atmosphere and staff. Thoroughly recommended. Between the four of us we ordered bangers and mash, fish chowder, roast vege tart. Delicious and well priced.

This restaurant is in "the octagon" area in downtown Dunedin, Food was poor and the draft beer selections were horrible, if this is their special Irish or Scottish draft beer, who wants to drink it ? ... the bartender/manager is a zero on a 1-10 scale when it comes to dealing with well intended and honest customer opinions of his product ... pretentious approach to dealing with customers that is totally unwarranted.
There are so many options in Dunedin this one does not deserve a look ... its hard to believe this place will survive for long.

There is nothing Irish about this supposed Irish bar. Very little atmosphere, no Irish music and understaffed, so the service was slow. When the fish and chips finally arrived, it was good, but we had to ask for salt and pepper. Very average.
