I came here on a Thursday, and I came back on a Friday. Both times were great. They have $5 dollar pizzas and $3 chips (fries) and cheap drinks. The pizzas are pretty good, a good price for the size, you get a whole thin crust pizza for $5. Both nights included me of having Heineken ($3 on Thursday and $4 on Friday). Let's just say that my friends and I took advantage of the drink cost both those days. It's a nice pub and a great place to relax and hang out with your buddies. Both times it wasn't crowded. The only thing that questions me about the place is why over 18 but under 21 people can't get into this establishment when the drinking age is 18. By the way, there are more specials each day and more items, I was just reviewing what I ordered and my experience.

Nice atmosphere clean bar, staff friendly...however, my English friend was over from Melbourne so I thought I would take her for a meal in a place that serves traditional English type food. Sadly the meal was a little disappointing. The glass of wine I ordered wasn't available and it was only 7pm. We both ordered the pie and mash, but the veggies on the plate were only just warm and very very crunchy boarding on hard, could have done with cooking a little more. The cauliflower was practically cold. Wouldn't now be able to recommend this place.

A truly rubbish website. I arranged to meet friends for a drink, well into the New year, there was nothing on the website to indicate what dates they would be closed, and upon arrival, nothing indicated at the door. Embarrassing for me, and a huge waste of time and money coming from West Auckland. Tidy up, or you will lose a pile of custom!!

Excellent English pub, very welcoming staff, clean and cosy surroundings - great genuine English beer.

I have been to Spitting Feathers a few times now, last time was fathers day when we had the roast - great food, great beer, just like being back home down the local pub.

Well done and thanks to the owners and staff, will be going back again and again.

Thank you Martin, Sally and Family

Took my teenage sons to Spitting Feathers to watch the Rugby on Sunday, I was very impressed, felt like we where very welcomed.
Not being English picking a beer was unfamiliar, I settled on a dark smooth, which was fantastic.
My sons had a 7up?
We all had a roast dinner for $15 it was brilliant value, and really hit the spot!
Spitting Feathers was a great experience all round.

Well done guys, keep it up! We'll be back!

Having been to many English pubs in NZ having to sit surrounded in awful memorabilia, drinking kiwi beer in pint glasses, I was expecting much from this.
As soon as I walked in the door, I thought I must have it wrong, until I saw the Carling logo on the tap, and then the John Smiths, and a huge range of beers and alcopops from back home. The bar itself is spectacularly clean, the atmosphere was perfect, music was spot on, other drinkers where polite and friendly. It was like drinking in bars back home at Christmas time!
I was only intending on having a pint or two, until I got chatting to a staff member about back home. Several pints and some scampi later... They have hardly any posters around the walls, and all the promotional items are extremely well presented.
We have over 100 people coming out for our Wedding in January, and we'll al be down here most nights, you can bank that one!

Check this place out, English, kiwi, you won't be disappointed!

Reviewer hwalters
really great English pub that I could quite easily spend hours in. Spitting Feathers is worth seeking out if you're in town - every time I've been there the atmosphere has been good, service fast and staff chatty. Combinations that you don't often get in Auckland pubs!

I went twice during a visit to Auckland - with the family at lunchtime and again during a night out with friends. Loved it both times - the beer, the food, the ambience and the great staff. A big plus for a couple of my friends was the vegetarian options - they tucked into Quorn burgers. Don't expect a restaurant atmosphere, this place is a pub and proud of it. Will definitely go back.
