Love this cafe and restaurant. Ideal venue for family get togethers or weddings. Every time I go there, I like it even more. Yummy food and excellent service. Beautiful country setting and lovely gardens add to the ambience.

We have just celebrated our 40th year of marriage and renewed our vows at The Brigham. We found the venue to be perfect for such an event with all of the kids able to roam freely and safely in the large open park-like environment. The food (buffet) was both well presented and very tasty!! The staff were amazing and assisted... More

I went with friends and kids during the weekend lunch at The Brigham. Great location for both North Shore and West Auckland. Beautiful garden, Park like setting and you can walk along after a nice meal. My favourite was lamb Shank. Flat white was perfect. Very friendly staff.

Over the past 18 months, hubby and I have turned up to have lunch, to be turned away each time for not having booked a table - they were busy. So I made a booking. The carpark was relatively empty on our arrival... and on walking across the drive, I spied an old highchair abandoned in the planter box which... More

This place continues to amuse me everytime we visit. This is a peaceful location and if you really want to enjoy the garden views and a stroll in the garden make sure to request sitting in outside area under marquee. The kids always enjoy playing out in the well manicured gardens which is very safe Well done team Brigham

What a great place to host birthday party!!!! We went for a birthday party for our friend's son. Its a great venue. The best thing is the space.... ample space for the kids to run around. Great food, great staff.

Not the best place to go or marry now, right on the new North Western Motorway, noisy, old and tired. Would have been nice back in the day

A group of 20 had lunch here on a cold winters day. Food was served quickly without anyone having to wait. They brought a heater to our table as it was so cold. Staff were efficient and pleasant.

We went to the Brigham for the Clear Water Cove Yacht prize giving. We rang to book our place for the dinner and were greeted on the phone by Raj who was very friendly and helpful and took our booking... from this point we knew that the yacht club committee had made an excellent decision booking this as the venue...
