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. At this fresh Takapuna beer house, you’ll find a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and a modern environment that’s all about good times and respect.

Master and Apprentice offers a tasty menu that’s made to share. Expect a range of dishes from pulled pork croquettes to gooey mac and cheese bites and mouth-watering tacos. Feel fit and healthy eating a fresh and satisfying crispy chicken salad or halloumi and beetroot salad. Or, put aside your healthy ways and indulge in one of Master and Apprentice’s scrumptious puddings. A special kid’s menu is available for the little ones too.

On the drinks menu, there’s a wide range of international bottled and tap beer, wines, spirits, cocktails and refreshing non-alcoholic beverages. Grab a seat inside the light and airy venue or sit outside in the sunshine. Come on in and pass it down.

What a pleasure it was dining at Master and Apprentice! The food is delicious and there is a great variety on the menu! We shared a number of plates, each one leaving us impressed! Finn gave us spectacular service and made our visit that extra bit more special! We will definitely be back and highly recommend!

Always a good meal at Master and Apprentice - really extensive menu, so there's something for everyone. It's worth getting a few appetizers to share too.

The young team were friendly, polite, professional and genuine. Food and drinks were delivered in a good time. My husband did order a second drink which took quite a long time to come, but it came with an apology when it arrived and then they left if off the bill which was a very nice touch.

The menu is amazing and we had a hard time choosing but everything we ordered was delicious - the beef and porter pie, the shrimp po boy and duck fat spuds with an amazing gravy. Everything was hot, fresh and tasty.

Funky but relaxed pub decor and ambience. We don't live on the shore and were just grabbing a pre-theatre meal but would probably make the trip again to try some more of the menu.

I had never been to Master and Apprentice until I saw them on First Table. I can tell you one thing, I will definitely be going back.

The service was fantastic, fast and attentive. We were seated as soon as we walked in the door and orders taken quickly.

The food was amazing. My partner absolutely loved his steak and chips. My pulled pork burger was great, on par with The Hard Rock Cafe in Edinburgh where I last had one.

Everything was really good, good service, food was good, I had the chicken parmigiana - the chicken was a bit tough but other than that it was a good meal. Would come back again.

We were greeted on arrival and taken to our table in a timely manner, then given time to look through the extensive menu and choose what delicacies we were going to devour. My partner ordered the 350g steak and chips and I decided on the halloumi burger, with fried squid to share. The food was prepared and delivered to our table very quickly (much to my partners delight). We were very impressed with both the food and service and would happily dine here again.

Food was great

Food very average, along with service. We had to find our own seat. First table wasn’t even explained to us. It took ages to get a waitresses/waiters attention to take our order. Every step of the way we had to ask for drinks, mains, desserts. One of the meals was inedible, all meals quite small and unappetising in general. Won’t go back.

This is the first time we have done booking through First Table. The experience was great. Great food, service was quick even though they had an event going on site. We order a few plates and larger meals for our family of four. The kids love the chicken tenders. Moist in the inside, nice and crunchy on the outside. The pulled pork burger was brilliant, filling was nice and saucy and a lot of flavour. The Shrimp Po Boy also hit the spot...with just the right amount of spice (needed a few gulps of water). All in all in was a great meal and the discount through First Table was great. We would definitely do it again.

Lovely experience and friendly staff. The only thing that kept it from 5 stars was that they were out of Cider and Beer Battered Fries early in the evening - otherwise, everything was excellent!

Great pub atmosphere & awesome selection of beers on tap here! We had a so-so experience with the food – the garlic loaf, loaded potato skins & ribs were all good, but didn't enjoy the beef Po' Boy at all. Maybe the other flavours are better. All in all a good experience though.

Stephanie Keates

Service was great, and there were a lot of options on the menu, but we found the food to be a bit average. The chicken was quite dry in the chicken parmigiana, the fried chicken and waffles didn't have a lot of flavour, the steak was great - and was cooked perfectly, and the sharing platter was a bit hit and miss - although the sauces were really nice. Overall, not too bad for the price.

- dined at Master and Apprentice on

Master & Apprentice was great! Male that served us was so accommodating and kind. We ordered almost half the menu and enjoyed our time! Chicken tenders, fries, duck fat spuds (basically everything potato-y) & chicken and waffles were our faves (: Atmoshpere is cool too, nice decor, not too loud or packed ~ would highly recommend

Was a fantastic night, had 4 children ages 1-12. Food was amazing and came out nice and speedy.
That atmosphere was fabulous and works for all ages. Staff were super friendly. Soooooo much food and we weren’t even able to finish it all. Best of all we got a doggie bag to take the remaining food home ( had it as a mid night snack, but shusssh don’t tell the kids)
Over all it was a great night out, delicious food that makes my mouth water thinking about it, steak
