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.
Our committee commented that they had received such nice comments about the Dinner in particular the staff who were so helpful. I contacted all our 7 committee members to ask their opinion and to give a rating of the food/drink etc and I wasn't surprised that the rating given was for a huge majority of 5 stars, with 4 x 4 stars and 1 x 3 stars, which is why I rated 5 stars across the board! Many thanks for a most enjoyable evening.
We recently held a family get together at Cobb & Co in the Freemans Function room - there were around 50 of us and the staff did a great job of accommodating our needs and delivered lovely meals and great service! I dealt with Ange Copson who helped us bring this event together and she was fantastic and made the entire thing very easy and it ran incredibly smoothly! I would very much recommend this for any function! Thankyou
Thank you so much for making my mums 80th birthday party such a wonderful success. Your staff were incredible+++. Food excellent. Cher had everything organised exactly the way she said she would. Our lovely young man who was looking after us(Ryan?) was like a member of our family. He was so helpful - above and beyond the call of duty. There was no problem when we were mixing and mingling - he always managed to find who he was looking for. I highly recommend Cobb & Cobb as a venue and we certainly will be back. Thank you so much.
Great place to take children, staff do a great job for birthdays
Very friendly and helpful staff, both in the restaurant and in running the quiz night. food was quick and plentiful thanks for a great night.
I will definitely recommend Cobb & Co to anyone I know. You have made our night as a family very memorable. I will definitely visit again with my family
The staff were really awesome and it was overall a very pleasurable experience. 7/9 of us really enjoyed the meals. My meal was the roast pork and the meat tasted weird.Someone mentioned that with roasts the meat has been cooked for a while which might have been the issue. The rest of it was nice though. Beside me my nephew was grizzly because he thought his meal was significantly smaller than the last time he bought the same thing and he was ravenous apparently. The overall event was very good and the staff were very helpful and very flexible when our party grew from 6-9 unexpectedly. So nice to go somewhere where all the staff were great.
Great for all the family, especially welcoming for the children who were kept busy the whole time. Thanks Cobb team.
Thanks heaps for bringing out a wee cake and singing Happy Birthday to my super excited 5yro - she loved it!
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
