The Albar is usually our favourite haunt in Dunedin as it's a cosy little pub with some great craft beers. However, had a disappointing visit this weekend. Had a couple of lovelly beers on tap which we were enjoying immensely until the bar maid over...More

Always a great place to catch up with friends and have a couple of pints. Great selection of ale and the nibbles from the menu very tasty. Has a great small pub atmosphere that keeps us coming back.

I've been a few times, only for drinks rather than food, but it's a great little place. There's a great selection of single malt available, and good beers on tap.

Welcoming pub with a friendly attitude, great beer and good food. I had the squid and my son had the haggish. After trying a couple of beers I settled for a golden ale, a lovely mellow but still hoppy choice.

Great little bar, a rare find it seems in this town. Cosy and historic space. Outside pavement seating. Good range of wines and ales.
