My partner's scotch fillet was cooked exactly as he wanted it, and my linguine was very tasty also. Very busy, it felt like half of Warkworth was in there :-) and if the food is this good all the time, I'm not surprised. We'll be back when we're next in the area!

Brighouse Restaurant is without doubt the number one place to have a steak dinner in Warkworth. You can relax in a friendly atmosphere with a drink of choice while waiting for your dinner. The staff were very friendly and when the dinner arrived in quick time the steak was to die for.

The place basically was okay but imagine paying $131 between 2 pm & 10 am for just the room but not even an aircon or a pedestal fan in it with the kind of weather we have -- there was one desk fan and when we complained they supplied one more smaller one than there already was --- It was... More

Often on our way home to Auckland we find ourselves in need of a snack or a meal and Bridge House is a great place to pop into. The service is friendly and reasonably efficient, the menu is varied and reasonably priced and you can sit quietly on a side verandah and watch the ducks on the river while you... More

Lovely setting with lots of natural light and interesting scenery to look at. I selected the NZ mussels as the Main and certainly made the right choice. A generous serving of 15 plump big mussels in a very nice broth. Others selected the chicken burger which generally was considered a bit on the dry side. Service was fast and friendly.... More

The Bridgehouse is a good place to stop for a pub-styled meal. The area around the bar is a rather cavernous space with large TVs tuned to the sports channels. However, there are other seating options: tables overlooking the river, or a large outside area with both small and large tables. The food is typical pub fare and the service... More
