Known for their broad smiles and good craic, Florrie McGreal's Irish Pub is a masterclass in boisterous, Irish hospitality. Now three times the size of the original, Florrie's is bigger and better than you've ever seen it. Named after the owner's grandmother, this is an eatery that puts family, good food and a decent pint of Guinness above all else.
And you can tell that it is treasured and adored by locals. It perfectly mimics a warm Irish pub with its wooden interior, cosy corners, pub games, twee bar and HD sports screens dotted about the place. Not to mention, filled to capacity with Irish memorabilia that creates a wonderful ambience. If Florrie were alive today, she'd be elated to see her legacy going strong in Auckland.
Lunch and dinner are hearty affairs in Florrie's neck of the woods. Wave goodbye to pretentious small plates for the comforting embrace of toad in the hole, fish & chips, chicken parmigiana, and golden-brown pies that ooze with meaty gravy upon the first satisfying puncture. They also do a mean burger! With loads of options including the signature McGreal's, black Angus brisket, chicken waffle and halloumi burger, there's nothing saying that a white shirt has to leave the same way it came in...
Alternatively, slice it up with a homemade pizza! With traditional toppings, as well as the Irish-inspired pizza with beef and beer sausages, Angus strips and Guinness caramelised onion, this suitably beery number gets better with each slice. And whilst you're on the right track, you might as well round things off with some Guinness ice cream! Here's to Florrie, you wee legend!
