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...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...More

Good bar in city centre with good variety of beers. Food is good as well, service is slow and bar staff seems to dream all night.

Its such a nice place for hang out with friends and they have a special brazilian snack. The beers are not that expensive for NZ standards. And its a really good place to go during the winter.

Another of these places you'll never find without tripadvisor, and maybe not the loveliest walk to get there. Beer and food was alright, nothing too special - a solid bar if you're not looking for something too fancy. Prices were also very reasonable.
