Cosy bar quite busy on a Thursday night. Met up with colleagues for dinner. When the food arrived we were advised to taste before adding salt. Good advice! My seafood chowder was saltier than the Dead Sea which had been over compensated with an abundance of lemon oil. Inedible. I did inform the waitress who said she would tell the chef. I guess that was it, no feedback, no apology, no further comment. To add balance, 2nd colleague had sausage and mash, salty but just acceptable, 3rd, fish and chips was lovely. Maybe just a bad night but less can be more

Pommeroy’s was once the exemplar of a community pub -
A place of community and hospitality. It was a sanctuary during the upheaval of the earthquakes.

Unfortunately after several visits in recent months, it can be characterised as an overpriced pub with limited bistro food and poor bar service - with no interest in making punters feel welcome, or a sense of getting to know the community.

Why spend $15 for a beer with poor service & disappointing food? Better off at a Speight’s ale house for value & service…

Times were more inviting when Steve met you at the bar and even if he didn’t remember you or your whānau he would still make you feel like he did.

After being a semi regular since 2004 we won’t be back soon
