We had an English ale and pork scratchings and peanuts here. It’s a lovely old pub. Nice experience.

An Englishman abroad. Unrealistically, after a good review by a cricket commentator, hoped for a proper hand pulled real ale a long way from home. No proper handpumps seen, just the little squirt tap dispensers. OK, but at six pound a pint, slightly eye watering,...More

Went for a drink in this pub with friends. My partner suggested to one of the bar staff that the toilets needed some attention as they weren’t very clean. 5 minutes later the owner came over and started shouting and acting very aggressively. Said she...More

Stopped here for a drink after a long drive round the Caitlins. It’s been refurbished and restored to an amazing degree. Barman was knowledgable and advised on the local brews.

Stopped in after work. Had to wait ages as the guy behind the bar was talking to friends. He barely acknowledged our group. There are better places in Dunedin

Best pint I have had in NZ, nice selection of British offerings, including some strong hoppy numbers (to which I am partial). Nice building and location. The most pubby pub I have been in yet; has made me realise most NZ pubs are actually bars.

This is a lovely pub that offers a good variety of beer but it's not very inviting on a cold day to get a drink. The pub was very cold and unwelcoming would have stayed longer had it been warmer.

Been in here a couple of times with people, and the Duke was converted to an 'English Pub' pub some time around around 2010. It specialises in English beers, and it's been quite tastefully done. I'm keen on brewing, the beer here has come a...More

What a beautiful well looked after heritage pub. My husband was in seven heaven. Thought we were back in an English pub on the other side of the world. A great choice of beers from every corner of the world. Enjoyed the atmosphere. Cooked chips...More
