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.

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

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.

We arrived and the lovely waitress showed us to our reserved table, it was a sunny evening so we asked if we could move to sit in the outside area and it was no problem at all.

The wait staff were attentive through out the evening checking in regularly. I ordered a couple of items from the small plates menu and hubby a gumbo/stew item from the mains. Both meals came out really quickly and were substantial.

Overall a great evening, with excellent service, location and choices of food, we would go again to try some of the other items we saw on the menu.

Service was great and food was delicious. Very happy that they were willing to change a few bits around on our orders to satisfy our requirements.

Would highly recommend the steak and awesome sangria jugs. Will definitely be back. Only thing I would suggest would be some fans or ac as was really hot.

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?

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.
