I stopped in while exploring as there as a film being shot and a lot of places were closed. They had a good range of beers and friendly staff. Glad I took the time out to have a look at the place.

Up a lane from Dixon Street past the old Hannah's factory. Wine in glass tumblers, craft beers and a fun decor (Star Wars models, old-school glass bulb signage, upside down buckets for lighting over the bar. Nothing chic or sleek about this joint.

I’ve never been to a bar that does last call for booze over an hour before they close. Bartender had a smug look on his face. Clearly doesn’t work for tips being in New Zealand. Bar is full but will turn down customers over an...More

I'm not sure if I'm on the right Goldings which was a bar tucked away off Cuba Street?! It's next door to Hanging Ditch cocktail bar (see my review). It's a really funky bar with a great choice of beers. There's a small and shaded...More

4 of us (2 couples) visited Golding's on a quiet Sunday evening. The bartender was obviously in a bad mood from the off and I could tell he had no interest in dealing with us (we wouldn't be as hipsterish as their usual clientele I...More

Kind of what you expect from an alleyway pub. It's got nice beers and is usually pretty busy. Ordering pizza from Pomodoro over the road and being able to eat it inside is a definite plus. Apart from that, nothing to write home about but...More

Golding's is unashamedly a Bar which focuses on selling good beer. The décor is "working man" with no too many thrills and it offers indoor and outdoor seating. The plain interior is decorated with all sorts of quirky memorabilia that can be quite amusing. Craft...More
