If you're looking for a traditional pub that serves a good brew and quality food in a welcoming atmosphere then this is the place for you.

As the oldest licensed bar in Auckland Queen's Ferry Hotel was first built in 1858 and granted a licence to serve liquor on April 19, 1865. The bar is named after the small town of Queensferry in Scotland, just outside Edinburgh.

With a rich history of publicans and even some intriguing tales of a haunting and mysterious deaths you're never short of a good yarn at Queen's Ferry Hotel.

There is still a “Hole in the Wall”… door downstairs, its very small, only 2ft high… in the brick wall. This is where the sailors used to enter and leave the pub after hours.

The hotel has been frequented by journalists and book keepers since its beginning.

Park for $2 per hour, to a maximum of $10 on evenings and weekends at the Victoria St car park. Find out more.
