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.

Had a great dinner at Doolan Brothers Ellerslie. The two guys had their steaks cooked to perfection (rare). Loved my Pork Belly as well. Had the chicken wings as a shared entree (recommended by someone in our Ellerslie Community Patrols group) and finished off with cheesecake. Came out really full.

Doolan Brothers is always our standard for good pub food. It did not disappoint. Food was delicious and the staff were attentive. It was UFC Fight Night so it was also very lively and loud.

Service was excellent and so quick. Food tasted great and portion size is definitely going to make you full. The only disappointment was ordering the crispy pork for a main, the pork was drowned in gravy and there was no crispiness and no crackling :(

Took Miss 7 and Miss 3 with us on our dinner date to Doolans. Was a busy night and we arrived early but it was not a problem and kids were well catered to with colouring activities and friendly staff who promptly delivered food for them. Kids bento boxes were great, our food was pretty average but service made up for it.
We will be back with the kids again soon.

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.
