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.

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.

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 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!!!
