Had a quiet beer recently. Lots of choice of tap and bottled beers. Quiet in the back where you can sit and drink your beer.

Went on Boxing Day so perhaps not the best for fresh food. The fish and chips were very greasy and tasted like they had been prepared in old fat. We stripped the batter off to eat the meagre offering of fish. The chips were also...sad ! Good beer selection which is probably what they are best at. But wouldn’t returnMore

I went as part of a 10-person work group for a lunch. Although not extensive the menu was sufficiently varied for everyone to find something suitable. I had the Beef Wellington, that was delicious although a few more potatoes would have been nice. Likewise the...sticky date pudding was very good but a bit more ice cream would have helped. However the service was excellent and our waiter's knowledge of both the food menu and the beer and wine list was very impressive. He as very helpful to those struggling to make a decision. This is one of the few places I would make an effort to go mack toMore

We were struggling to find a single free table in Wellington for dinner on a busy Saturday but Tasting Room gladly accommodated us. The staff were super attentive and helpful from the get-go. We both had the beef filet and it was absolutely delicious, so...I highly recommend that.More

Me and my partner had a great dinner here! Excellent food, good service, nice decor and cool and atmosphere. As vegetarians recently returned from Melbourne, we have found NZ pretty far behind on accomodating any kind of dietaries, but this place did an awesome job,...and we will be back.More

Lovely meal. I had the buttermilk fried chicken burger and it was so tasty! The hand cut fries were delicious

This was just average. We had sausage and mash, fish and chips and burger and chips. The service was good but the food looked better than it tasted. Luckily it’s not expensive.

That really surprises me as we received everything that we expected to and the four of us all thought the prices were very reasonable. That’s why we went back another night. Their happy hour was awesome.
