Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My mid 20’s daughter took my teen son there for dinner and was asked to leave because she was not my son’s parent or guardian. Beyond rude and disappointing behaviour from the staff. We live locally and do not recommend the place.

We were in Devenport for the day and stopped in at the Patriot for lunch. The fish on offer was Tarakihi. As we had this fish in our travels before and loved it, we chose the crumbed fish. Unfortunately the fish had a foul smell...and we could not eat it. The lady that served was was excellent, so she deserves 5 stars ⭐️….the food was not great ☹️More

Classic pub food, done pretty well. I went for the steak and Guinness pie. The pasty was a bit doughy on the bottom but the flavour of the filling was good. Overall a nice evening was a bit noisy for a business dinner but that...was expected. From what we saw portion sizes were variable between tables (ours were huge)More

Basic pub with basic food. All good if you're not looking posh. Coffee beer and food. On the main street above the beach and park. Worth a visit.

Came with friends and was shocked by the appalling slow service for food - it was busy but nothing out of the ordinary - after waiting over an hour for the food and going to see how far away it was we were met with...the manager who was rude, unprofessional - the guests were shocked to be honest. Food was ok but standard and not worth what they were charging - in this day in time I’m sad to say this place won’t last specially with that woman in charge. Plenty of better options in Devonport to spend your money.More

Stoped in for a late lunch after the segway tour, recommended by Pauline who runs the segway tours. Perfect little historical hotel, nicely renovated. Had seafood chowder with a local cider on tap. Delicious!

Some great beers on tap and always enjoy the atmosphere here. Lately the food has gone down hill. First meal arrived then had to wait 20mins for the next ones. Nachos good but brisket was dry and ribs, while large, lacked flavour and seasoning. Need...to get back to the basics.More

My work mate and I went to The Patirot on Devonport last night, waited over an hour for meals that wasn't worth the wait. Chips was soggy and plain. Schnitzel was tough and hard to cut with a normal knife. I wouldn't return anytime soon!

Easy to get here fro. The ferry, decent menu for a Saturday and I’d course a great section of beer, including speights. The food was excellent and pretty speedy. Lovely staff.

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
