Freeman and Grey


A little about us

Named after the two suburbs that it borders, Freeman & Grey in Ponsonby is one of those bars that could potentially become your next local.

Casual, relaxed and decidedly unpretentious, Freeman & Grey is chilled out during the day and bustling by night, with a great menu of tapas-style sharing plates and pizzas that'll go perfectly with one of their numerous tap beer offerings or a selection from their wine list.

Come for a pint during the week, a night out with friends on a Saturday night or a relaxing brunch on their upstairs deck on a lazy Sunday.

A good friend was back from the UK and we wanted to catch up somewhere classy. A few of us separately requested we go to Freeman & Grey because we had all heard from different people about how nice it is. We ordered drinks and some of us got the ‘Farmer’s Platter’ to share. This had chicken wings, meatballs, calamari, wagyu beef sliders, stuffed mushrooms & beer battered fries. All were AMAZING although this conclusion may have been reached due to the numerous wines that had been consumed by the time the food came out (not implying that it took a long time but rather that we went all out on this particular occasion with the drinking).I have been back many times since and will continue to. The lovely outdoor area and the balcony upstairs that overlooks Ponsonby Road makes for the perfect place to have a casual wine after work and I think that is what this bar was created around the notion of; for that casual after work drink/bite to eat.
