This pub was a very pleasant surprise. It’s comfortable and been done well; the staff were friendly and helpful. On this occasion we were just meeting for a few drinks before dinner elsewhere but each one of us said we’d be back.

We had a great first time visit here. Our waiter was amazing (ginger haired chap). He was very busy but managed to get to his tables without fuss and with a good spirit. It was comedy night and that was ok. They needed to turn the music down or off sooner to hear the early comedians. The food was a... More

Great lunch place, busy & friendly. Great to visit a bar with a good wine selection and the staff are conversant with the characteristics of your chosen sup - not feeling like an upselling, genuine great advice.

Where else in Auckland CBD can you vacuum down a steak for $10? This place is a hidden gem. Pleasant atmosphere and great location, excellent for downing a couple of beers after a long day in the office...

A nice bar which is hidden in a corner. Serves great beer and the food is good as well. Different seating arrangements available such as bar top, table and even on sofa by the fire.

The bar is very dark and has a cool well in the middle of the floor. The barman was rude asked us what we wanted to drink then buggered off to have a conversation with another barman. We asked for menus which looked like they hadn't been clean in months then we looked for a table. Six tables later we... More

Our accommodation in Auckland was within close walking distance of this venue and recommended by our hotel. We had a drink before dinner. Good atmosphere and a busy local bar scene. Dinner was average and the noise in the venue was so loud we couldn't hear each other speak. My lamb shank was still grisly which was a shame and... More

I read about The Bluestone Room on trip advisor and thought it sounded okay. It was close to where we were staying and we needed an early night so thought we'd try it. It's a pub with average pub food. The bartender thought he was funny, he wasn't, but Tuesday is comedy night so maybe he was just thinking he'd... More

Hi there! We like "quirky"... also unique, rustic and historical. Can I ask why what about the Cajun Chicken Burger was "average pub food"? and you're right, the hand cut chips are pretty good... just sayin. You are also correct that Melbourne Cup had been on and there were still people watching the races after the main card so it's... More
