Here's a recommendation for you. If you want Auckland City then try Father Teds just off Queen Street (think it's cnr Wellesley St).

It's as close to a British/Irish pub atmosphere as I've ever found in NZ.

It's popular with all age groups, tourists, office workers, homesick Irish expats and people from all over - the mix of locals and expats is why it's so cool in my opinion. They have a live music regularly and the food isn't too bad either. It's probably one of the cheaper places to drink in the CBD.

Andy1133........I tried Father Teds on Friday and have to agree that it was quite good and with a pint at $9.50 right in the City...that's good. I will pop back there for a music night for sure.

I do have an update though......tonight I discovered 'The Thirsty Dog' on what you locals call 'KRD' ... The K Road.

It is the nearest I have found to a pub. The owner (Jonty) is a local guy, loves his music, often has bands in and some guest ales. The beer is a little dearer ($11.50), but the experience for me was better. On Tuesday they have Poetry night, and as I am a fan of Punk Poet 'John Cooper Clarke', I'm gonna give it a go. The bar staff made me feel welcome, so it's gotta be worth another try.

On the opposite side of the road, I noticed a bar called 'The Dogs Bollix', so I will try that next.

Good Luck All.

Start a 'sticky' thread titled 'The best pub in...' unfortunately I can't contribute as there isn't a pub within 15km sob.
