We were staying with family in Howick village who suggested this pub. Nice courtyard to front of building. Free sun cream was a nice touch. Comfortable and spacious bar area. Not too busy when we visited. We ordered sliders (3 mini burgers), portion of wedges...and Katsu chicken. Good range of craft beers. Recommend mac-a three wolves pale ale.More
One of our party of 4 had a great meal, the rack (albeit just 3 chops) of lamb, other not so (the pulled pork and beef burger not great. Thought the pork and beef were going to be separate but the pork was in the...beef patty, my error maybe but a bit odd tasting). Service was at times a bit too keen but overall very good, I guess you would c all this a gastropub rather than a restaurant so overall it was OK but wont be rushing back. Drinks are expensive imho. Went there another time just for drinks and was surprised at cost of a round for 8 of us (over $100).More
We had a family celebration here. The Good Home is a well known pub and restaurant in Howick, Auckland. It is warm and friendly and on this occasion we had a party of 10 and were given a secluded nook in the venue, called the...library. There is a children’s menu as well as an adult menu and extensive drinks list. The restaurant serves pizzas as well as tapas, starters and main courses. I had the venison which was cooked to perfection and very tasty. A good spot for a brunch or dinner as a couple or in a family group. Plenty of parking close by. We were here on a Saturday night so it was abuzz with people, but we had space to chat and engage with the people in our party.More
I really feel that I need to write this post as the service at this restaurant has gone downhill. I don't want to make friends there any more as I don't know what to expect.
On Tuesday night I went there with friends. In the...beginning, we were offered water and drinks. All good. However, not once did they come to top up the water and I was unable to get their attention. In the end, I got up and found a metal jug with water in it and I filled up our glasses. The staff even saw me do this. Even worse I ended up doing it four times!
Not once did they offer any more alcohol to anyone, other than to come to us at about 9 pm to say that it was the final call for drinks from the bar. So disappointing.More
Friday lunch with 12 girls to celebrate a special Birthday. The Good Home did a great job of getting all the meals out at the same time- not easy when there are so many. I picked pan fried fish with a salsa, pesto & tomatoes,...it was delicious.
Good selection of wines
Mocka was yum but could have been hotter.
A fun long lunch.More
I was up here on Saturday night and the bouncer struggled to remove this troublemaker apparently the cops were called never saw them in fact never saw a cop all night even when then troublemaker and his associate got in their car both drunk and...drove off, wont be back.More
A great place to go for shared snacks with friends or in our case a quick bite to eat after the movies.
A good selection of wines, especially Chardonnay & yum bar snacks - delicious sliders.
Warm and cosy on a chilly night
