Food was mostly good.. They had run a special on the steak meal during the day and by the time we ordered a steak they were running out and mine was bordering on average. Others after us were initially told that they had run out of steak but then the manager went out and found more... Good for customer service. Generous servings.. Great beer... Highly recommend the Te Aro Dragon Apa.

Our first visit here, and I was pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable.they were setting up for some local talent, and front he signs, they have talent come play there often! Always enjoy some entertainment with the meal. We didnt try it, but they do have quite a selection of craft beers-which is becoming more the trend these days! We will be back to visit!

The food is amazing, service is above average for a pub style restaurant. Downside you order at the bar. Upside you are told by wait staff how long it will be, for us 10 minutes, which was very good as they were busy.

The food is stunning, great sized meals and the desserts are worth a go, we had the apple shortcake, gorgeous. And staff either with food or at the bar are brilliant. Just the scene was not my thing. That is not the establishments fault, just one of those things.

Cool place, good ambiance. The pizza was delicious and burgers hearty, served with a large portion of chips. We didn't have room to try the dessert but they sounded delicious ... especially the apple shortbread with vanilla bean ice cream and berry coulis. Also sell chocolate beer! Would definitely go back even without First Table. The prices are very reasonable, portions generous and there was live music from 7.

A great place for casual dining serving mainly burgers, pizza and steak. We tried the spicy nuts and they were certainly fresh and warm but had no spice.
The bread with oil, balsamic and dukkah was delicious. One of us had the steak special served with chips eggs and salad and that was perfectly cooked. The fish burger was very nice too. Good to see a couple of dessert choices available now. A fudge brownie or apple shortcake with icecream. The beer menu is a big attraction along with substantial spirits options and the dark wood decor makes you feel like you are indeed in a Barrel Room. Staff were friendly and a nice buzz of customers around made for a relaxing and most enjoyable night. Thank you.

Very good atmosphere, helpful staff. There was no children's menu but the kitchen had no trouble with the meals being adapted to suit my daughters needs- she had a ham a cheese pizza which she enjoyed. Food was tasty and we did not have to wait long for it.
Would happily go again.

We had a lovely meal - 2 older ladies on an early night out - cosy - not too noisy. We had a beautifully cooked steak and salad. We will definitely return.

The restaurant was busy when we arrived with a great vibe to it. Enjoyed our meals and found the menus and brews very appealing, we weren’t disappointed with our choices. Great service so we will go back but with more people next time! Cheers

Nice atmosphere and good value food. I took my two daughters and they both said that they would certainly order the same food again (sirloin steak)

I had the smoked salmon pizza which went down particularly well with a pint of craft beer. If you like the opportunity to taste a range of unique craft beers then this is the place to stop.

Regarding service nice friendly staff and we were particularly impressed with the staff member from Texas a great host and we will be back

Great night out without the kids. Fantastic atmosphere, good food but could have been a little better service. Would have liked our orders taken at table, had the specials read to us and delivered our meals quicker. Nice to have a table reserved for us and nice chatting with the Staff. Can’t wait until they offer desserts as this would have been a nice treat.

Staff were courteous and attentive. I particularly liked the fact that a serviette was put on the table before the cutlery was put down - a nice touch as I am a little fussy.
Two of us had burgers which were full and flavoursome, and two had the steaks which they said were cooked to perfection. We all agreed that the slightly seasoned chips were beautiful.
Thanks team - an enjoyable night was enjoyed by the four of us.

What an amazing night! The atmosphere of The Barrel Room was fabulous! For a Saturday night they were very busy but they still ensured that we were taken care of. The food was amazing and served very promptly. We ordered entrees and mains and we completely stuffed! The burgers were well presented and the pizza my brother had was beautifully cooked. The staff were so attentative and made you feel so welcome. They leveled with you and recommended some great drinks to try and also which food was their favourites. Made us feel right at home. 100% worth going.

Great Ambience with stunning decor. Interesting selection of Beers and a large spirit selection. We both enjoyed the British Chocolate Porter served at the perfect temperature. Delicious Bruschetta to begin our meal. Fresh flavours with plenty of sliced baby tomatoes and basil. My Scotch Fillet Steak was cooked to perfection and accompanied by mushroom sauce, a salad, fries and an egg. My husband chose a large Davenport Pizza which was a meaty treat finished with creamy blue cheese. Beautiful flavours. No dessert menu available yet but I was told they are working on having some options soon. (I wouldn't have had any room for it anyway). Sports was on a TV beside our table but I am glad the sound was muted. Nice how there is a couch area to relax in, small dining tables for intimacy and large tables for groups. Great place for everyone to relax with friendly staff. Thanks for a lovely experience.

Mm-Mmm! Delicious! My mouth was watering just reading the sample menu, and oh my was I drooling once our order arrived at the table! A pizza is not complete without cheese, and it sure wasn't lacking! And no one can eat a burger without the perfect sauce and boy did they deliver! Thanks so much Barrel Room!
