Love returning here when back in Grey Lynn. There are 3 pubs in the centre of the West Lynn area of Grey Lynn and whilst they are all great this is the favourite. A busy locals' bar with excellent wines and guest craft beers and excellent thin based pizza to comply with the licensing regulations that food must be available. The owner Mike may play a tune on the piano and there regular live music evenings.

About us

Freida Margolis sits on a quaint corner of West Lynn...a butcher for 117 years - it's now a place of whimsy and conviviality - with the vibes of live music and vinyl on the stereo  - it's just what it is - friendly and genuine..

"Top choice bar in Auckland: Formerly a butchers – look for the Westlynn Organic Meats sign – this corner location is now a great little neighbourhood bar with a backstreets of Bogota ambience. Loyal locals sit outside with their well-behaved dogs, supping on sangria, wine and craft beer, and enjoying eclectic sounds from the owner's big vinyl collection.
