Great place for a beer but shame about the food (not bad just nowt special). The quality of the cask ale was up there with Lancashire's finest - a very high bar. Like the Swamill range of beers on offer and they keep it well. Food ok but basic range and standard pub fayre quality. A great addition to the city centre and helps one avoid places selling horrible gasy lager.

Love this place. Awesome/interesting selection of beer chill atmosphere and a really interesting bar menu. Plus the downstairs area is really cool. One of the best places in the city for good beer

We dropped into the Vultures Lane for an express lunch on a rainy day a couple of weeks ago. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and we had the Pork Bap and Chilli Bowl and shared the chunky chips. the chunky chips were excellent, being crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The Pork Bap was good value and the Chilli Bowl was accompanied by a plentiful side of corn chips. The only down side was that the chilli could have been spicier and an accompaniment of sour cream would have enhanced the meal. There was a great range of Kiwi draught beers and the Number 8 Wire Conductor pale ale was superbly crisp and fruity.

I have no doubt that the craft beer at this pub is good - plenty of bloggers have written about their drinks already.

I would like to assure you, however, that the food at Vulture's Lane is well worth trying too. In particularly, the "Buttered Bird", which turned out to be fried buttermilk chicken with pickles and a smokey dip, was not only cheap at just $11, but also very tasty, hot and crispy!

We have only been once so far, but definitely planning to return for some other items from the small yet tempting menu!

The Portobello mushrooms: An ecstasy of flavours, with blue cheese and dukkah topping these four succulent big mushrooms. I'll have to come back again for these. An absolute treasure, and only $10.

I loved that the on-tap beers included a good range of NZ craft beers (Epic, Emersons... etc) - coz I'm all for supporting NZ made. But sorry, being influenced by Dunedin heritage, and preferring a simple easy-drinking beer, we just couldn't go past a Speights. Which drank beautifully with the mushrooms.

A nice atmosphere, good for conversation - not too rowdy... and easy to get service at the bar. Friendly female bar-tender was fab - offering tasters of the various Craft beers too. Nice one!
