Great place, great staff, nice food!

Always friendly and helpful staff, and young too! We probably visit once a month on our way either north or south. The ribs are a generous serve and I find it hard to look past them! The fish n chips are good too. Nice outdoor seating area out the back. And in the winter, 2 real fireplaces... read more

Having been here a few years ago we decided on a return visit. This was a central place to meet not far from Auckland City for the wider family who traveled from near Whangarei. An easy 45 mins from home. The menu was typical of cafe food and varied enough to cater for all of those in attendance (10-98 years... More

The Bridgehouse is one of the best restaurants in Warkworth. Open, airy and attractive, with plenty of outdoor tables with lovely views over the river. A full bar and a good wine list complement the menu. My favourite dish is the excellent Caesar Salad. Add in the pleasant staff and free wifi, and choosing the Bridgehouse becomes a no-brainer. My...

I was invited there for a birthday party by a local family. They definitely knew where to celebrate their son's 18-th birthday! Good selection of dishes, cool decor and friendly atmosphere. I was with a big party of about 15 people who all had different things and all seemed happy.

A riverside restaurant in the centre of town that caters well to locals and visitors alike. The menu has enough choice to suit a range of tastes, including our vegetarian family members, and the service is friendly and efficient.

This place is beautifully set up outside with tables by the estuary. Great for private conversations in a peaceful setting. Maybe a little big and cavernous inside to feel cosy and at home but we only ate outside and loved it. Needs a good renovation of the bathrooms and staff service was very very laid back (think almost non-existant) but... More

We went for a business lunch on a weekday. Sitting on the deck looking over the river,it was a nice setting with ducks swimming along the river. I had the mussels , others had the Ceasar Salad and calamari, everyone enjoyed their meals. Service however was a little patchy. the waitress was foreign and didn't seem to know what spirits...

We take visitors to the area to Bridgehouse for dinner quite frequently and are really impressed with the quality of the food, the cheerful ambience, and good service. Also great for watching big rugby matches on Sky!

Met relatives here for an evening meal. Lots of street parking at that time of day. Good menu with a wide selection - the pizza although not huge were very good value at $15. First efficient & friendly service. Obviously very popular as nearly full on a Monday evening. Good for a meal or just a drink.
