This Irish Pub looks like a lot of others, which usually also look good. I was seated and offered a beer while I looked through the menu. I was pleased to see an Irish stew, and it came out perfectly cooked and presented. Together with...More

We tried this place in Invercargill in March, 2018, and it was amazing! Great food selection and drinks on offer! Must-try the cheese fondue and the steaks and tates. Definitely a must-try if and when you are ever in Invercargill!

This place is as good as any for nice food eg as good as any of the restaurants in Taupo, and many of the high profile hotels I have stayed at e.g. in Auckland.

Great pub with large dining restuarant - good varied menu and on the main shopping street in Invercargill - usually pretty busy place.
