arrived and got served straight away , my wife ordered the mussels $28.90, me the short rack $29.00 the mussels arrived only a dozen was in the bowl in which we shared nice but only 12 freakin mussels , then comes the short rack ,...yes short indeed , pretty sure i ordered that bad boy before covid and it was twice the size now it is a very sad rack that comes with bad chips and coleslaw , with 3 drinks walked out disappointed and $90 lighter . Crowed house wont see this crowd again so many other restaurant's in New Plymouth that still has a care factor installed with food .More

We had a family birthday meal, the staff were very attentive (Emily), the chef accommodating to our needs, a great atmosphere, music not too loud, attractive surroundings and decor. Highly recommend for a well priced meal and drinks👍🏽

We had a lovely dinner at the Crowded House! The service was awesome and the meals delicious! We had smoked Lamb Shank and Moroccan Lamb Rack. Melt in your mouth Lamb! Very friendly staff and our Mojitos hit the spot. We will tell our friends...to come here when visiting New Plymouth!More

We were in a group for the quiz night. I had specifically booked a table and when asked where it was I was told I could sit anywhere. Two of my guests could not sit on stools at high tables which was why we had...particularly booked a table. Luckily we were there early so could use one of the tables which had been booked for quiz participants - but not our group's name. We ordered our meals and drinks and the young lady was very pleasant and polite but we had to ask for water. The meals duly arrived but none of us had any cutlery so we had to ask for that and of course our meals got colder. I appreciate that times have been extremely tough for the hospitality industry but not giving dining guests any cutlery is not acceptable. After that a server came round regularly and checked that everything was satisfactory. The food was plentiful and very tasty.More

We visited here several times during our weekend in NP. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and even remembered us the second time. Big choice of food which came well presented and was generous in size - great value. Loved all the screens to watch...the sport. Good layout with good views from many seats yet still private for dining.More

Thanks so much to Crowded House for the delicious menu. We had vegetarians and pescatarians eating with us who were all catered for and loved their meals. We also managed to be at the restaurant on steak night for our meat eat friends. Fantastic service,...great food and excellent value. My daughter also commented on how nice the toilets smell. Thanks so much Crowded House. We will be back.More

Reasonably priced, great atmosphere, good specials (try the fish and chips with a glass of wine on Sundays for $20!) and fast service. Recommend for a night out.

Excellent service from start to finish. Excellent food, happy cheerful staff. Recommend if it’s a after work drink or a good family meal. Clean and tidy.

My partner and I had a voucher won in a previous quiz night. We had the pork belly sliders which were the lunch time special and were very tasty. We were impressed that each customer was greeted as soon as they walked in the door...and shown to a table. Wait staff were friendly and helpful. Service prompt. Very good value.More
