Sports on TV as a sports bar should have. Good choice of tap beer. Food wasn't bad too and was of a good serving size.

Just popped in for a drink and what a lovely place. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere just what you are after.

First time to Rotorua and stopped in for a beverage and ended up getting the seafood basket, good size portion, nice pub and Irish music playing in the background

The food is excellent, we had wedges and nachos and the nachos are some of the best in town that we’ve found. Awesome service & great atmosphere. We will definitely be returning for dinner.

What a great Irish Bar, really big and fantastic surroundings. The downside when we visited was that it wasn't very busy, so we decided against eating here....it just felt a bit empty. Great surroundings and lovely to see other reviews with a bit more substance...than mine.More

Great communication with the staff before the event. Easy access to venue before the event for decorating etc. On the night we used the private function room and Hillary kept a good eye on our food an drinks for the group of thirty people. Amazing...service from Hillary and Reg was also on top of things. highly recommendedMore

We tried the $20 menu and were really impressed with how tasty the food was, and big portions. Yummy irish coffees too.

We had the Sunday Roast (one pork and one beef). Both meals were delicious and very generous and came with a yummy dessert. Service was friendly and efficient and atmosphere was enhanced by Irish background music. Would recommend to anyone looking for dinner on a...Sunday night.More
