“Could be better”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

A great venue and location, and helped by the fact that there isn't that much to choose from in Warkworth. The menu is pretty much unchanged in the last few years, staff training is patchy with service often slow. Pricing is a bit on the high side, given the average quality of the food and service

“Food and accommodation”
Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

FOOD.......... the restaurant / pub at the Bridgewater Lodge has great food. The selection on the menu suited us and every meal we had here was delicious. The staff are friendly and provided great service.
ACCOMMODATION.......if you are planning to stay here, remember it is a pub, therefore some nights will be noisy as patrons leave at whatever hour .......even the staff were noisy leaving at night. Perhaps they could be a little more considerate. The rooms are clean, bed comfortable, huge TV in room. Poor shower pressure and only liquid soap but no face washer to help use it in the shower!! Suitable for a brief stay and is close to town centre.

“Good al lrounder!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

This a great place to bring the whole family or to hang out with mates. The food is good pub fare and it is always nice to sit and look down at the river. Well priced.

“We just went here for wine but it was expensive and very average, despite the location.”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

We went here for a couple of glasses of wine with a possible view to having dinner. The wine was served as a large or small measure, which I don't really get. I thought a glass of wine was just that. - a glass of wine. The "large or small" question just felt like a cheap attempt to "upsize that". The bar maid didn't know the prices and has to check the menu to know what to charge us. Once seated at an outside table, we were offered no further service to bring more drinks of to enquire if we wished to see menus. At $14 a glass of wine we would have expected this kind if service but it was evidently not forthcoming. We therefore left after our one glass of wine and spent our dinner money elsewhere.
