All five of us raved about our meals. Great food at good prices which came out quickly. Love the decor!! Lots of fun with a game of pool to finish. Good service too, thanks!

Crowdy is looking tired. Staff weren’t wearing face masks. I hate when the smokers outside sit with the door open and fill the place with smoke. It’s just revolting! Not nice when you are trying to eat a meal and have to deal with that...smell. A sliding door is hardly going to keep the smoke out. But staff do make a bloody good lemon lime bittersMore

This place has a great atmosphere and the meals were awesome too... Not too fancy, but not too basic either. This is what I'd call a fairly middle-of-the-road pub food... Price was pretty reasonable, service was great, and the location was good too.

Very good food and service. We hadn't booked but there was plenty of space at 6pm so had no problem getting a table for two. It's a sports bar and restaurant but the screens are not obtrusive. We had salads, beautifully prepared and generous portions....We enjoyed and can recommend this restaurant.More

Were visiting from out of town and wanted a place to watch the rugby game and have dinner. We hadn’t booked but from the moment we arrived we experienced great service. Would really recommend if you are visiting New Plymouth

So glad you enjoyed your spontaneous visit at Crowded House, cheers for the great review!

Lovely food but ,why does a kitchen serve a table of 2 separately, I got my main and 15 minutes later my partners arrived. As a chef I was always been on the assumption that a table should be served together not separately is this...something new in hospitality? Otherwise apart from that food is lovely and atmosphere is great. Keep up the good work team just sort serviceMore

We had dinner here recently and while the food was great we found the service poor. Staff took order for our mains and drinks in a timely manner but after food and drinks delivered we didn’t see them again. They had heaps of time to...talk to locals but obviously weren’t keen to talk to others from another regional centre - we found it disappointing as we would have liked dessert! Wouldn’t visit again.More

Morning Judave, I am very sorry that your visit at Crowded House wasn't as awesome as we would expect it to be! Our staff are usually great with all customers especially out of towners but obviously and very disappointingly they were off their game when...More

Very excellent restaurant! The food was absolutely delicious, there was not a very long waiting time and it had a great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend eating here when visiting New Plymouth!
