I have been here several times, once for a wedding and the other times for birthday lunches, and enjoyed it every time.
Plenty of options to choose from food-wise, with large servings. Coffee and wine very good.Staff weren't so friendly, making strange comments.
I hope to return again as the location is wonderful, makes for a nice lunch or evening out!

Thank Emma B

Travel by North west motorway from downtown, just keep going on this highway 16 until you see Hobsonville Exit, then you will see this wonderful place, excellent food with good prices,friendly owners....I have been to 4 weddings here and the grounds are wonderful, well worth a walk around, its out in the country alittle so great views, you will see why it is popular for weddings because of the setting.
Friends of mine go often for a meal, in summer you can sit outside, Bookings needed or at least ring them first, but nice drive anyway...nice place for tourists.

I was brought here less than a month ago for high tea for my birthday and it was lovely - nice staff, all homemade goodies and beautiful grounds - I can see why people have weddings here. I brought my staff back for our Christmas lunch and it was devine. I had the fish and chips and the fish had just come off the truck and was beautiful, a nice light crumb. Next I want to come back and try the dinner. The staff are very friendly and happy to help - heaps of parking as well.

Visited The Brigham for a Sunday lunch with a Classic Car Club group. This establishment is located at Whenuapai in a very pleasant garden environment near the new motorway so is very easy to get to from North Shore, as well as West & Central Auckland.

Food was great and very fairly priced as were the beverages. Service was also very good particularly considering that the restaurant was full. The staff looked after us well with a cheerful smile.

I chose the big breakfast and it was BIG and there were plenty of attractive choices on the menu that will be worth going back for next time.

Have had lunch here several times. Joe and Raewyn are perfect hosts, the service is always friendly and prompt, the lunch menu is varied and the prices reasonable. Good wine and beer list and great coffee. The soup of the day is always good. Eating on the veranda with the expansive views of the gardens is very relaxing. It is right off the new Hobsonville/Albany freeway so easy to get to and they've just increased the parking. A special, casual dining experience.
