Beyond this sea of masts sits the Auckland Harbour Bridge, North Head and Rangitoto Island — the view that is the City of Sails.

Welcome to The Riverhead
The Riverhead has been a house of refreshment and conviviality for around 160 years. In that time it has seen many events and stories come and go, countryfolk and townspeople, fishermen and farmers, smugglers and clergymen, marauding riders of the night through to social visits from the local constabulary. All have played their part in giving The Riverhead a rich stable of stories befitting the oldest riverside tavern in New Zealand. Today, this rich tradition of hospitality continues and we invite you to come in and make your own stories.
