Wonderful selection in Christchurch and the staff is very knowledgeable about the beer. Great food and service. Only knock would be the live music can make it impossible to hold a conversation. The outside beer garden is great. The little B&B next door is great!

This place feels like being in my living room, sitting in my favorite chair, but with better beer, better service, and better music. It was comfortably crowded on an early Tuesday evening, and owner Steve spotted me right away and pulled me into a behind-the-scenes tour of the place, complete with tastes from the brightening tanks in the bwery. In fact, the building started as a brewery in the 1880’s, and although a few buildings have been lost to the quake, it’s great to see an old brewery used for its original purpose. The rest of the staff were terrific, friendly and efficient. Food was very tasty. A young lady on guitar was tonight’s offering of live music, which is apparently on at least five days per week. I counted 31 taps from 22 breweries, all local except for one from Brewdog. All this, and I was able to walk just a few meters to my room at their B&B. This is the type of place that I aspire to own some day. Oh, and they have goldfish! What’s not to like?

Such a great pub, the staff seem to be able to give tasting notes of any of the 20+ beers available at one time, off the top of their heads.
Gets a bit loud in there sometimes, but it’s a pub and not a RSA, so can’t complain.
Always something new to try.

A very good find and one of Christchurch’s best pubs. Very good beer selection, including a couple of cask conditioned ales. Good food too.

One of the first places I visited during my New Zealand trip. This is a relative large bar, located outside the city centre with a pubstyle appearance. Tap selection is great. Think this probably one of the best bars in New Zealand. Staff is helpfull, tasters are no issue.

God I’m fussy. There are so many things that will strike a place off my list of potential locals. Poms ticks just about all my boxes as it cares about the beer, it doesn’t lack for friendliness and has a very good bar snack menu. It is nice to see a truly family owned and operated bar where the family are the ones involved in every day to day facet of the business.
There are a few minor gripes though. When it gets busy, it gets extremely difficult to hear. The quiz needs work. But for all that, it is one of only three bars I happily go to in Christchurch.
