We were headed north but got side-tracked and delayed by a road block due accident. We found Bridgehouse and wandered in. It was a Friday night so busy but the staff were sooo helpful. We were seated and served very promptly. The meal was fish but I can't remember the type ....delicious and very reasonably priced.

This is the "go to" restaurant between Auckland and Whangarei. The menu is typical NZ fare and the staff are friendly and efficient. The décor is interesting with high space and a corrugated iron roof in full view.The pricing is fair with a good selection on offer.

We were looking forward to revisiting this place to show it off to friends. I appreciate the place was busy, and the outside area was 2 /3 full, but we still had not been attended to after 20 minutes. After thirty minutes I went to the bar and got us all drinks. We had moved from outside to inside, in... More

This is a great place, with a wonderful atmosphere and good food. Reminds me of a mountain lodge only without the snow. But don't fret their patio extends over a stream with a view of the bush and plenty of seating. We had the chicken bacon sandwich with mango chutney and Brie, a chicken and avocado chipotle salad and steak... More

This place and the staff never fail to keep us coming back! Lunch for 15 people with varying tastes was the order of the day. The food as always was tasty and well priced. The bar has a good selection of drinks on tap, out of the fridge or off the shelf. I had the chicken and bacon sandwich at... More

Had their gourmet pizza. Very nice. Service was very prompt and efficient. Desert - lemon slice was fine but the fruit salad was mainly Apple which was a bit disappointing. Would eat there again though.

Don't be put off by the look from the street. This hotel does harbour a small town pub and gaming lounge, but it has a character and style. The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms that look slightly uninspiring from outside are renovated and comfortable.

Went here for lunch yesterday. Wasn't busy. 6or so people but waited ages for food. The food was ok when it came. Adequate. I had prawn and avacado cocktail.
