We had a great experience at the Bridgehouse Lodge when visiting Warkworth. The setting is amazing and the food was of excellent quality. One has various options where to be seated - inside or outside and the views on the river is worth it. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Like so many in NZ this has a factory feel about it - the problem might be it is trying to be too many things for too many people. Not intimate enough for a real pub feel and crammed with too many styles of interior decor touches. We were planning to stop for a drink and a meal but the... More

Stopped here for lunch after our morning arrival from San Francisco . Large bowel of muscles with a nice creme sauce and a nice chunk of fresh toasted bread. Complimented this with salt and pepper squid and two nice cold beers in frosted mugs. Efficient, friendly and fast service.

This place has gone downhill in the last year. We waited for nearly 90 minutes for our mains ( at least 45 minutes after one of our group had an entree) they were told to bring this at the same time as the main. Avoid the lamb - it was like thin soup Wouldn't go there again

They have a good selection of food, something for everyone. We have eaten there quite a few times and always found the food to be piping hot, well presented and a generous serving. It is quite a big place but can get pretty busy at weekends so it is best to book in advance. Only niggle is that it can... More

Nice terrace at the back, the Lodge serves an acceptable level of pub food. Nothing wrong with that, it meets expectations and was plentiful

We stayed just one night, rooms were very clean and tidy but had minimal space. Very hot in room without aircon, managed to get a small desk fan from the staff but not quite enough. Bathrooms have recently been updated, very nice just a tad small. We had a broken window latch so anyone could have just climbed in our... More

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.
