Seafood chowder luke warm with an unpleasant skin on it. Soggy pork belly. We shall not be going there again which is sad as we used to enjoy The Dux before the earthquake. Before I posted this I emailed them my comments, I had no...reply. Perhaps they just just don’t care?More

Bar staff are helpful - although you have to shout at them. We have eaten here a couple of times thinking that the first time must have just been an unfortunate experience. It wasn't. The food is fine - it is predictable pub food ;...not bad pizza, burgers, fish. Plenty of chips. Just be prepared to go deaf. Easily the noisiest place in Christchurch that we have eaten at. Staff - being deaf - don't want to turn the volume down when asked politely. Our group had our meals and then left for somewhere we could carry on a conversation without shouting like everyone else in the bar was doing.More

This has always been my go to place for a seafood chowder. The first time I ordered a couple of years ago it was amazing. Thick and full of all of the fish that the menu said was in it. The second time was a...thin soup but with all of the fish included. Today was very disappointing. A thick soup but lacking so much of the fish that the menu said was in the chowder. No squid, no smoked fish, no other pieces of other fish. Sadly no staff came to ask us How was your meal. Had they asked I would have told them about being dissapointed. My partners fish and chip meal was also over priced. We will not be dining at this restaurant again.More

This is a regular lunchtime favourite of ours when in the city but today it took nearly 40 minutes to produce a margherita pizza despite the place being almost empty, more staff than customers. Obviously a forgotten order as it arrived 5 minutes after our...inquiry. No apologies from the very sheepish waitress! Will stay in the centre in future and save the hassle of moving the car/finding a park. Usually a great place for lunch!More

My partner and I have been wanting to try this place out for a while! Birthday night seems like a good excuse! Made a reservation for 7:30 . When we arrived we weren’t acknowledged by any staff and stood by the counter for 15 minutes...before choosing to walk away . Pretty guttered as I missed out on a nice birthday dinnerMore

Dined early on a Thursday evening. Had made a reservation so a bit disappointed to find we were seated next to the door leading outside. Very cold and draughty. Food was very good and plentiful - we both opted for the fish which was beautifully...cooked and presented. Staff a bit over zealous though and need to learn to wait for people to be seated and settled before asking about orders. We had not even sat down before we were asked re drinks. Even though we asked for a bit of time to settle we were constantly interrupted by two different staff members asking about drinks and food. Maybe a bit if miscommunication between staff as have not encountered this before. Overall though worth a visit. Live music was fantasticMore
