Welcome to The Riverhead
The Riverhead has been a house of refreshment and conviviality for around 150 years. In that time it has seen many events and stories come and go, countryfolk and townspeople, fishermen and farmers, smugglers and clergymen, marauding riders of the night through to social visits from the local constabulary. All have played their part in giving The Riverhead a rich stable of stories befitting the oldest riverside tavern in New Zealand.
This week we have The Hipstamatics back again Live in The Boat House.
Playing from 2-6pm.
The Hipstamatics arrange and remix iconic songs in a style unique to the them and give them the real Big Band sound.
These are songs that you know and love, totally reloved and revamped by this awesome big band of talented individuals
….you’ll recognise them from the Good Morning Show where they are regular guests….
It’s Free to get in (through the white gates), there’s two bars, great food options and plenty of room.
Three exciting options for you to choose from…..
Come by Boat
Make it a day to remember by coming by boat. After a leisurely cruise on the sheltered waters of the upper Waitemata, you will be welcomed to The Riverhead’s Boat House where a scrumptious Valentines Buffet will be laid out for you. Nestled under hundred year old Oaks & overlooking the water can continue your romantic evening with a glass of Brancott Estate Bubbles or your choice of tap beer on arrival with our compliments. It is a relaxing evening with two and a half hours at The Riverhead before returning to Auckland on the ferry.
Tickets $98 per person (includes boat ticket)
The Red Boats leave Auckland at 6.00pm form Westhaven Marina and will return by 11.30pm (approx.)
Or come by car…..
We are taking bookings for our special Valentines Evening Dinner. This is a delicious three course set menu and a complimentary glass of wine or beer to start the evening.
The evening will start with a small plate of Salmon sashimi, tempura eggplant accompanied by wasabi avocado, after which you choose your Entrée, Main and Dessert.
Bookings are essential. Vegetarian & vegan options are available.
Price $69 per person
Or party in The Portage Bar…
Coincidentally, Valentines is also our Anniversary of re-opening The Riverhead, so we’ll be having a Party in The Portage Bar with free live music, free pool and giveaways.
Either join us after your Valentines dinner or just come for the party. No bookings required.
