This is a very good restaurant. We were attracted by the 2 for 1 roast. It turned out to be New Zealand roast lamb served with all the trimmings including mint sauce. Very good value for money.

Unfortunately I wouldn't recommend the food here, it's on par with fine dining prices but is served like a pub (which it should be). They do offer daily specials such as 2 for 1 burgers, pies and roast dinners but would be better if they offered these everyday rather than 1 special per day. The burgers came on a tiny... More

We went here for dinner on New Years Day, bit of a wet evening so not too far from where we were staying. Food was good and quickly came. Husband enjoyed the Guinness. Not a big place but we managed to get a nice corner table, got busy later

Called in for lunch craving a pie. Had The Black Harp steak one which I thoroughly enjoyed. Quiet when we visited but I am sure normally very busy. Even able to overspill onto the pavement using small tables mounted to windowsills. Only criticism was lack of light but overcame this, as had a choice of where to sit, by choosing... More

Popped in for a Guinness and a game. I loved the decor and the vibe. Good drinks list and lots of pub grub options - but a bit more than that. Terrific installed sound system and great music playing made for ambience that saw me return.

Passing through New Plymouth, I assume locals know. The Black Harp is worthy of a stop. Three different meals, steak, burger and chicken pie. Everyone's response 'great'. There was a forth meal... on the tabke next to us 'pork belly' which looked very nice.

Thank 70flash
