Master and apprentice - stopped for snacks for a chat with friends- minimal healthy tasty options, just the greasey flat bread and a very oily but otherwise would have been tasty eggplant dip. Very few healthy vegetarian/ animal product free foods for those of use...More

This was good pub grub! Fun atmosphere, really friendly staff. Kids enjoyed it. We were there over New Year and the whole town was busy, and I live in California so I know busy! But we got a table and everyone enjoyed their dinner.

We ended up here with a group of people looking for a place where we could still get dinner rather late for NZ. The Belgian theme was a plus. Unfortunately, the food was only middling, partially quite good, partially (e.g. my mussels) overcooked and appearing...More

A Master and Apprentice share mutual respect. The Master passes down knowledge but in turn learns from the Apprentice, one cannot exist without the other. What you’ll find at our Takapuna Beer House is not just beer, but a friendly, relaxed, and modern environment that’s about good times & mutual respect. So come on in, grab a seat and pass it down.
