Great atmosphere on a Friday night. Steak and pork belly was delicious. Attentive service. Only negative was the desserts selection was limited (3 choices) and quality/value of the two we ordered was poor.

Five of us went to celebrate an early Mother's day on Saturday night (3 generations). Very warmly welcomed into a lovely pub/restaurant. Bit worried about the lively atmosphere with elderly parents but had a great night watching the Warriors win against the Dragons! Food was amazing - two had the Guinness pie, one chicken mushroom pie and two chicken burgers. Portions so big we could only manage two desserts which were also great. All in all a great find in Ellerslie with plenty of free parking right next door. No problem taking an additional person at full price. Had a great night.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Doolan Brothers. The staff were very friendly and the food excellent. We used to be regulars here, but after moving out of town five years ago, hadn't been there since. It is still the great bar and restaurant that we remember.

We were up from Dunedin with friends and decided to take them to Doolan Brothers Ellerslie. The pub atmosphere was light and cheerful, dining tables on the mezzanine level meant we could enjoy our meal away from patrons but still be part of the atmosphere. Food was 10/10, T-Bone with prawns cooked perfectly, fish and chips were delicious, as was the chicken. We highly recommend.

We arrived and it was a nice atmosphere people in the pub chatting and music in the background. After a long day at work it was lovely to come here and order a meal. The menu had lots of delicious things. I bought a long my mum and two younger cousins to dine in with me. The waiter was very lovely and bought our menus and water with ice which we needed as it was very hot outside! I chose the Guinness Pot Pie and my mum ordered the steak and my younger cousins ordered the Chicken & Mushroom Pot Pie and the Doolan Burger. We sat and had a lovely conversation and before long our food was being served to us! We had ordered nachos to share as our entree and it was ginormous! We all shared and it did start off our appetites quite well. When the food came it was beautifully presented with generous serving sizes I almost couldn’t finish mine but it was so delicious I had to! Definitely recommend going here again it’s a 15/10!!!

Not fine dining, but excellent pub grub, as you'd expect. Portions generous. My only complaint was that we couldn't eat it all!
Waitress was lovely. Not overly attentive but that's fine as we weren't in a hurry and had plenty to talk about.

Great service staff were friendly, they came across as really happy and did a great job a pleasure to be served by smiling happy staff. The food was really good steaks cooked to perfection, the cheesy garlic bread is also worth a mention yummy. Hubby thought the mash with bacon was not to his taste, he said a plain nice creamy mash with butter is unbeatable. The side of green vegetables were good and not to overcooked. Shamefully we cleared our plates and left no room for desert. Maybe next time!!!!

Service was amazing, very attentive waitresses thank you for making our night a pleasurable one.

Our beautiful cuts of steaks were over cooked asked for medium rare & both steaks Sirloin and T-bone were well done not one smidgen of pink in it. Not really someone to return a steak back to the kitchen especially 2 steak meals to be re-cooked lol..So ate it anyway. Buffalo wings were dry & tough so only managed to eat 4 from the dozen. Won’t order those again. Calamari and baby back ribs were good.

Other than that, which we feel needs another mention, the table side service was excellent. Would return again one day to give it another try in the future. Cheers
