Part of the Portage Licensing Trust. Enjoyable bar, can get a bit rowdy at times - but safe overall. Karaoke on Friday nights, with some drink specials too. Really like the pizzas here - excellent value. I think they're circa $10 - $14 each, but there are occasional 2 for $15 specials which make these great buying. Bar prices are typical for West Auckland - wine circa $9 a glass, beers $7 - $10, RTD's the same. Does serve some cheaper options (e.g. cask wine at $5 a glass) if budget is an issue.
Parking provided outside, part of a small group of shops, so normally no hassles finding a spot. The bar has a "The Trusts" wine shop attached for takeaway alcohol sales.
Enjoyed my visits here - it's not a town bar, definitely has a "local" feel.
