Pizza decent, nice atmosphere (lots of funky backpackers hanging around, since Nomads is next door), also lots of suits after work, if that's your thing ;). However, a little confused by tap beer situation - Export Gold on tap? The Black Dog Chomp thing was nice, though. If the tap beer sitch improves, I would be happier. It's also a handy location for groups.

This is one of my favourite bars in Auckland. Mainly as it's off the beaten track but right in the centre of the city. They have a great garden bar which is inside a hollowed out part of the building which means the roof is all open yet you have old Victorian windows beside you. So can feel a little odd but such a great atmosphere. The staff are all helpful and fun. Not to mention their drink prices are decent. Which is good for being in the city. Good place to start your night out. All the usual drinks are available and their music is always pretty decent. Good run of old and new tracks! None of this over the top repetitive music every bar seems to play these days.

I loved this place the first time I went there. After I went back for a few lunches it wore off. Service is great.... but each time I eat it leaves me flat. I have to say the chips are primo though...

Came here with some friends for an afternoon feed of pizza and a few drinks. The staff were nice, the prices were reasonable and the pizza was freaking delicious (and massive).

I really liked the ambiance of the place too, it has a good look and there was a pleasant crowd.

I'd definitely recommend it as a good place to spend an afternoon with a few friends.

Saturday 6th July 2013 - Beware of power hungry bouncers.

Came here for my very good friends 31st birthday - was dressed nicely in good jeans, tidy collared shirt and a 'cheesecutter' hat.
No signs on the way in that say no hats. Bouncer checked me out on the way in and said you're sweet.

Had two beers then was removed with force (left bruising) from the bar for wearing a hat. Presumably because the bouncer was on a power trip and there was no drunk idiots to chuck out so he went for the guy in a hat.

In my opinion - spend your money somewhere else. The ten people that left with me did.

Partner and I went there on Sunday evening, not too busy. Was seated right away and drink order taken.
Sunday they do not serve from Mains menu, but still offer vast selection of pizzas and sides.
Ordered the Mexican Hombre Pizza, Beer Battered Fries and Crumbed chicken. Plus 2 jugs of Beer :)
Awesome food, and great price. Used an Ent Book Voucher so was very happy with end price.
Great pub atmosphere, we sat in the Garden bar, not too cold for June. Would def go back here.

On Wednesday 27th March my friends and I went to this bar during our lunch break.
1. Firstly after waiting 30 minutes we found out that they misplaced our food order, so we had to re-order

2. Then they brought out the wrong order

3. The steak sandwich contained fridge cold & RAW meat (see photo in their photo gallery)

4. Had to go back to work hungry

The managers solution was that he wasn't going to charge me for the meal. What a JOKE!!! Did he really think I was going to pay for a meal that I didn't eat and for a piece of Raw steak especially when I asked for medium to well.

Would never go to this place again!!!

What a great little find, upstairs on fort street would normally have walked past but we had a treat me voucher.. very glad I brought this, walk up the stairs to an awesome bar with a really cool outside rooftop bar, we had a lovely few hours here and the service was exceptional, the staff were fun and friendly and did an amazing job. The pizza we had was loaded with yummy and toppings and tasted really good.

This is one of my fav places to go, for either lunch or dinner. The food is good, although I hear the menu is changing or has changed (have to go back and check). I like that you can choose between the garden top area or hang out in the back inside.

Went back in last week (nov) and service was really slow for lunch time. Better to be seated in the garden bar area.

nice atmosphere, however i wouldn't recommend ordering the chicken burger-$20 for a small bun burger with dry up salad leaves, and bits of chicken. the chips on the side tasted better then the main/burger. it shud only be a $10 meal if that.
very disappointed with the meal.

Came here on Valentines Day for lunch, great menu and pretty cheap to average prices. Very filling, great spaces and a nice clean crisp atmosphere. Would definitely recommend if you don't mind spending between $20-30 on lunch once in a while.

Love this place. Awesome casual atmosphere with a great outside(ish) garden bar. Lovely to kick back and have a drink and they do great food as well.

Awesome service for a bar. They'll take your order from your table and bring you the drinks etc.

Food is really reasonably priced and a really good meal for the price you pay! Definately worth a visit!

I loved this place! Great drinks, cool atmosphere, and awesome bartenders. I originally tried to get a reservation at some other place but the time I wanted wasn't available,so I wandered down to Fort St Union.

The bar is amazing and the chicken was the best I have ever had. Next time I am trying the burger... it looked amazing!!

Is it possible to give this place zero stars? If I could, I'd give it negative stars.

Revolting food and pointless service. Had to pay for a meal that was really inedible and arrived well after everyone else's.

Fort St Union - rather go to McDonald's.

Great looking bar with an good laid-back atmosphere and excellent service.
The waitress was very friendly and even introduced herself. Our drinks and meals came out quickly and were delicious.
We will definetly be returning for more.
