Great location in a historic building in the heart of Christchurch. Lots of staff. Lots of inattentive staff. And when our party of 8 did manage to attract one thwy could only take one drink order at a time.

Beautiful and delicious cocktails with an exciting cocktail menu and great decor. Was too loud for us but certainly a good vibe and popular location. Bar staff were friendly and accommodating, Christchurch certainly sets the bar for hospitality.

My wife and I were staying in an apartment in the Old Government Building. The OGB Bar is part of the building and has a very nice outdoor seating area. They have a good selection of beer and other drinks as well as a good selection of food. The French fries seem to be very popular here! The waitstaff is very friendly and efficient. This became our regular stop at the end of day of exploring the city. I recommend it.

Went with adult family as we were staying next door. The day was lovely and was such a nice spot to have a drink outside and enjoy the warm afternoon. The service was great and the food was nice enough pub grub. Lovely view of the cathedral.

An excellent bar to stop in for a drink or meal. It's warm and sophisticated with just the right touch of nostalgia. Great wines by the glass.
