About Cobb & Co Dunedin
In the 1860's luxuries were few, there wasn't any electricity and hardly any frills,
in fact there wasn't much of anything but there was gold in them, thar hills...
News of this fabulous find, around the world began to gush
Sparked off the start of what became known as the Otago gold rush.
Before you knew it, we were all the rage...
and over-run with shiploads of pioneers of doubtful parentage!
The immigrant gold-diggers needed stage-coaches to get around
so Freeman Cobb said "of course we can..." and that's the way the uniquely kiwi Cobb & Co. story was found!
Everything was sweet for over 60 years until trains and the new fangled motorcar became all the go. In the early 1920's the wheels started to wobble and in 1924, they really came off, to lots of woe.
Sadly at this time, Cobb & Co.'s last stagecoach disappeared into the sunset for the final time.
But it was not the end, for the company is again ready to shine.
Today Cobb & Co. is New Zealand's oldest and original Restaurant chain and continues to serve
in the fond memory of Freeman Cobb with a dash of humour and verve.
Welcome back to Cobb & Co., where your friends and family will enjoy our all time favourite food, where you can kick back and chilax, just like coming home.
And that my friends, is how the guest was won.
The food was amazing .but unfortunately the time it took to get the food after we ordered was just over an hour so if you have kids take them there early (we thought 6pm was ok) .we felt that the staff were unexperienced she found taking the orders hard and we keeped having to repeat ourselves and still some orders were wrong hopefully they get better
The criticism I would have is that water was not offered and clean cutlery was not provided for each meal course
Food was delicious and service was great, staff were very friendly. Can’t wait to go back
Thank you for a great meal, your staff went out of their way to make my son feel special on his birthday with balloon a hat and a cake while singing happy birthday! We had a great night will be back for sure!
Food was excellent and service was better. Many thanks to Amelia for looking after our needs.
Thanks so much everything was really good only one comment would have loved to have the bar open an hour longer or for them to have told us it was last drinks
I was very impressed with the speed the meals came out for a table of 11 even though the restaurant was very busy.
We had a lovely meal. We sat in the saloon. It was quiter than the restaurant. Very nice atmosphere and friendly service. I would recommend it to others.
Five stars all the way. What a very enjoyable evening. The food was excellent and the staff gave us exceptional service that made our evening more enjoyable. We will recommend the Cobb & Co to our friends.
Great place to have a family event - thanks Cobb & Co Dunedin
Great place for a birthday!!!
It was so lovely and thank you so much for bringing out the cake and singing happy birthday to my boy. It made his day! Our waitress was amazing thank you so much for the wonderful dinner
Really enjoyed the small touches of making families feel welcome.
Great service and the kids area and meals makes it our first choice when eating out.
Was a lovely dinner and great staff. Unfortunately just as we were finishing our dinner we had an extremely strong smell of cigarette smoke blow over , not any of the staff issue but was a bit off putting
Always enjoy our visits to Cobb & Co for a meal nice friendly staff and good service
Fantastic way to celebrate a birthday, service was excellent and food so delicious. Thank you so much for making my birthday so special
Staff always friendly and helpful. Food is the best in Dunedin. Can't get enough of Cobb N Co. Thank you for making my sons 9th Birthday so great.
Was really nice and the food came really quickly!
Dining at Cobb & Co Dunedin was a pleasant outing. It was my Birthday and We enjoyed the our food and drinks. A huge thank you to Amelia, Ryan and the other lovely staff member who sang Happy Birthday to Me and gave me a chocolate cupcake, I was really surprised as I thought that only young children received that treat, and and added bonus my meal was free. Family Friendly Dining and quick service. I'll recommend Cobb & Co for birthdays and Dining out to my friends and Family and fb. Thank So very Much.
Nine of us were here celebrating my dad's 80th birthday. The staff were great, very friendly, nothing was a problem (closing blinds, opening windows). The food was great, it came out fast, nobody was left waiting.
Some of the food and coffee was not hot. My partner said he thought the roast of the day was re-heated not fresh. Seafood Chowder was nice but not hot enough. Coffee was luck warm not hot. Otherwise everything else was great. Would look forward to coming again.
Great big table up in corner on wagon wheel, meals were very nice, the bread is the best bread ever had anywhere.
Had an awesome birthday, we had super service from Ryan, he knows his stuff, well done.
This was the first time we had visited the new Cobb and Co since it opened. Unfortunately we had a whole beer spilt over our table by the waiter and needed to be moved to another table with the four kids. Then we had another customer who was sitting close by harassing us the whole time we were there he kept coming over to our table and trying to talk to our children and commenting on various conversations my husband and I were having. This made us all feel very uncomfortable and could not enjoy ourselves. The meals were basic and I found the roast to be a standard pub roast with dry meat for $23 and my husband was disappointed in the tiny salad he received on his steak and rib meal of $34. The children however enjoyed their meals and traffic lights. It was nice when our daughter was sung happy birthday and received a free cake although funny as it wasn’t her birthday it was our wedding anniversary. Staff were friendly and environment would have been more comfortable with out the unknown customer that kept involving himself in our business. Sorry but highly unlikely to return.
