Riverhead Tavern... For Lunch

This is the Riverhead Tavern... A beautifully restored old pub.

It's an absolute 'must go there' experience.

Situated on the upper reaches of the Waitemata Harbour

This is the day we went. After a sunny morning on the
beach a tropical storm followed us here...
Lightening, deafening thunder and rain so loud
we couldn't talk...

This was our view, almost obscured by the rain as we ate lunch
The menu...  Well there is plenty to choose from. I had
Tempura Fish & Chips DF with a beer
 Janeen had 
Pure Ground Beef Burger with Iceberg lettuce, Manuka 
Smoked BBQ sauce, Melted Swiss cheese, Onion rings
and Shoestring fries with a glass of wine.
 It was such thick noisy heavy rain. Can you see the tents
on the right hand side. I'm glad I wasn't lunching there!
We finished our lunch with an Affogato sitting
by the fire. Eventually, reluctantly, we had to brave the
weather and go home.
It's top of my 'to do' list next time I'm in Auckland.
You can get to Riverhead by ferry that leaves downtown
Auckland, times depending on the tide.
