If you're feeling peckish or parched, Warkworth offers plenty of choice. Our favourite establishment is The Tahi Bar & Kitchen. Straddling a laneway, this hip nook wouldn't be out of place in inner-city Melbourne and yet it offers the most quintessentially Warkworth experience of all. In fact, "local" is the obsession here.

Great beer, great food, great staff. I love this place! A great range of craft beers, great food (chicken wings are superb), lovely staff. Very relaxed vibe, they support local brewers, local wineries, local food outlets, and local bands (great live music nights!). Great place to just chill out after work in the beer garden.

Oh my gosh, this place is such a 10/10. Best steak & hot chips, ever. I'm not a chicken lover but the original wings are out the gate yum! Staff were so great - as I was cold, they popped on heaters & got me a blanket. Top service - great job, team!

I highly recommend the Tahi Bar for any band or discerning music lover, as a performer or audience member. I am so pleased that we have possibly the best bar in NZ, right here in Warkworth!
