A fun pub with interesting decor. Featuring Mac's Beers, a New Zealand brewer, you kind of know what youa re getting. The food is pretty good, too, with sandwiches, bagels, salads and mains including vegetarian options. This place is very near Brew on Quay, so if you are on a bit of a crawl, make this one of your stops. It's also close to the Vector Arena.

There is occasional live music and DJs at the weekend.

Sports mad place to watch, cheer and drink. They always show the rugby, but you can also see NBA and other sports on the big screen. The calendar on their website tells you exactly what they'll be showing. They have a full menu and being located in the Viaduct means it's central to all the action and gets very busy. Arrive early if you want a seat.

A great local pub which a good selection of beers many of which are brewed on-site. It gets full in the evenings and the atmosphere is friendly and lively. The food is also really good but there isn't always a vegetarian option. There is a small beergarden out the back but mind those stairs after you've had a few!
