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 & 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 & 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.

I felt like a queen dining here! Service was impeccable and the food was to die for! The atmosphere at Master and Apprentice left me feeling like I HAD to return first table or not! ♡ I didn't think it was possible to top that but they're also kid friendly too! I will definitely be returning with my family soon!

Very attentive staff, we arrived early for a drink and they were more than willing to show us to our table early. The food came out quickly, your typical american food, several vegetarian options to chose from. I wouldn't say it wow'ed us, but was some good comfort food. I would go back

We had an awesome lunch here. The highlights for the food were the mussels with the Thai sauce, the buffalo wings, squid, and the massive burger with 2 patties. The portions were massive to the point we had to get some takeaway boxes for our leftovers. The service was great to - we were allowed to sit wherever we want, got water for the table without asking, and when we asked about a mocktail for the pregnant sister in law we were told they'd go off menu and make us one if we wanted. Friendly and prompt service with delicious food - what more can you asked for?

My son had a birthday celebration and we really enjoyed the food and service. The Wednesday quiz is a superb addition to a great place for dining. We’ll be coming back for sure.

Had an awesome date with the wife at Master & Apprentice! A really cool place to go for a non-traditional meal. We ordered 3 share plates rather than a meal each which was a fun experience! (Cauliflower fritters, buttermilk chicken tenders & Caribbean chicken taco - would have all 3 again!) and then topped it off with the mammoth Knickerbocker Glory Dessert - only thing was maybe a tad too much vanilla ice cream and not enough brownie, but was definitely filling and perfect for two! Would come again for a date or with a group! Our waitress was really great - even though I kept calling her the wrong name half a dozen times haha

I took a friend from Japan to try NZ mussels. 1 kg mussel pot was very good and just right size for 2 of us. Good space between the tables so we didn’t hear other people’s talk. Nice and spacious with a lot of natural light. The pub is located 2 min from all the shops in Takapuna but not the busy street so we felt comfortable by the window with not many pedestrian walking by.

First time we used First table and 1st time to Master & Apprentice. Had an amazing experience and will bring all our friends. Massive portions and love the down to earth feel.
Staff was quick to seat us and to get our drinks and compliments to the chef. So big that both hubby and myself had to take leftovers.

Lamb salad I had was good but the addition of asian crispy noodles seemed strange...maybe pinenuts instead? Starters are a food size. Seemed like not enough staff to service the restaurant area.

What a menu! So many delicious dishes to choose from! I settled for the creole ettouffee and wasn't disappointed. It was full of seafood with just the right amount of rice and some garlic bread on the side. There were so many other things on the menu I would like to try. The service came with a friendly smile. We will definitely be back!

I ordered a burger w fries and the waffles and chicken. The burger was huge and tasted good according to my 11 yr old niece, However the chicken & waffles was horrible. The chicken was dry & way overcooked. I'm not sure if the skin of the chicken strips were suppose to be black in colour? Overall I wouldn't go back. The lovely lady who served us had great customer service.
