Would recommend this pub for its atmosphere, food and ale. The staff were alos very friendly and the location in Devonport was central.

Food would have been lovely a few hours earlier but was all dried up when we got it. I had pie, mash and peas and partner had sausage and mash and they were both dried up like they had been sat keeping warm for hours.

If you want fast food go somewhere else. Asked twice where my food is kept saying 5 minutes. Worst place in Devonport. You can guarantee I’m not coming back

It was a lovely day so we chose a table outside. We were only here for a drink, but it was a very nice and relaxing spot. Seemed very popular.

Ordered two diet cokes as I was drinking mine with my sunglasses on I suddenly noticed lipstick on the glass. In these times it is very worrying to get a dirty glass. They knocked the price of the cokes off but who cares about that,...disgusting. When the food eventually came I had vegetarian sausages with watery potatoes, burnt leeks and sour tasting tomato sauce the other person tasteless fish.More

Having arrived in Auckland by Cruise ship an Excursion took us to Davenport and having looked around this lovely seaside town we decided to try the The Patriot. It was a nice sunny day so we decided to sit on the tables at the front...of the Restaurant. Looking at the drinks menu, the beer selection was dificult as there were 14 different varieties. I chose the Max Gold which was really good. My wife had an excelent white wine. We decided to have the NewZealand Green Mussels in white wine and garlic. We were so surprised of the taste, the sauce was the best I have tasted.More

Hi Jose. We apologise for your poor experience at our pub recently. We do suffer from slow service times especially when it gets very busy as we have limited capacity. We are currently taking steps to rectify that by adding additional fryers and grills. We...More
