You might recall that we came here on our first night in Auckland, so this post will feel quite familiar. We returned to Auckland this afternoon after dropping off Bruce, our motorhome companion for the last couple of weeks. This meant we were in much better spirits than last time, when jet lag was creeping up after 24 hours in the air and a day of trying to stay awake.
We even sat at the same table as last time, and Mrs MOFAD was as pleased to be back as me:-
The Bard pale ale was my favourite on the last visit, and as there was nothing different on this time, a few of those went down very nicely. Similarly, I opted again for that lovely “The Works of Shakespeare” burger, with a fried egg, bacon, beetroot, tomato, lettuce and a pineapple ring.
Mrs MOFAD chose the chicken, mango and noodle salad, which was lighter and very refreshing. A good choice on a warm autumn evening.
Last time we met locals and had a chat, this time we ended up chatting to a few Brummies who happened to be working there. It’s a small world, but one which contains lovely pubs like this one.
