An institution at The Horse & Trap, into his 16th year of hosting the quiz (a world record at the same pub), join NZ’s best quizmaster (as voted by himself) Riggsy for one of Auckland’s most famous Tuesday night quizzes - where legends are born.


Live Music: Kara Gordon
Fri 8 February

There’s not much more to be said about Kara other than his reputation as one of the country’s most talented guitarists we’ve ever produced. Check out who he’s performed with and you’ll quickly realise his incredible pedigree. What a way to spend an Auckland Summery evening.

Live Music: Beau Adams
Fri 15 February

Beau is a regular here and if you’ve never caught him performing live then this is your opportunity. You’ll get a bit of everything with Beau - with a mix of rock, pop and everything in between charting the last 25 years. With stage presence and a killer voice to boot, Beau Adams is legit.

Whether you are celebrating with close friends, wanting an internal team meeting space or holding a company seminar; our two purpose-built function rooms can accommodate your needs. Here’s the good news - you’ll get our amazing, super-friendly and accommodating level of service, along with the same food and drink offerings in the main bar and dining rooms.

love beer?

We're not strictly a Monteiths pub. Rather we choose the majority of beers from DB (including most of the Monteith's series) for the simple fact, we prefer the taste! Increasingly growing in popularity are the new breed of local craft beers, which we highlight every month on our guest tap for you to try.


reserve your experience
