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 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.

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.

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.

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

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.
