The Dominion is an appropriately named pub/bar situated on 234 Dominion Road of Auckland. A relatively easy spot to find and park opposite the Countdown. Away from its Oriental competitors on the same road, it serves classical pub food and a host for the sporting games. On this occasion, came here for lunch using a Groupon voucher which gave monetary incentive to come to this place, voucher was $40 worth of food for $20 so essentially 50% off!
Only two meals were ordered, the Beef Bourguinon and the Bangers & Mash. Hearty, filling and tasty. These were washed down with Lemon, Lime Bitter and a Flat white.
Overall a nice experience with service and food. Beautifully presented and portions that fill the stomach.
It was not very busy on a Sunday however the waitress was informative and patient. She did go and double check if certain items were on the menu which showed attention to detail.
Its hard to say when dining with a Groupon voucher however the prices were typical cafe/bar prices. The odd thing was that the Bangers & Mash was the most expensive ($28)
Overall, we pleasantly surprised at the quality of food received. The Beef Burguinon was superbly tender and succulent, it would have been an amazing winter meal. The Bangers & Mash was not a typical meal I would have at a pub ever but because its unique sausages and a first of trying something - it was presented very nicely. The lamb and venison sausage were lean and had plenty of flavour. The pork sausage was typically fatty.
