A great turn out of excellent local talent for food (a wide variety of cooked ready to eat treats, baked goods and fresh fruit & veg); ask Marty for a freshly squeezed organic juice & further in, check out the smoked fish... There's usually hangi available too.... And the best place to buy local craft beer... Local arts & crafts also available.

This is certainly a favourite of ours! Close to home, this well established vineyard with cellar door is consistently a superb experience for ourselves and our guests: beautiful setting, family-run establishment, great service, excellent food & wonderful wines. Well worth taking the time to do the complete wine tasting too!

This is a great place for foodies who appreciate high quality food with Japanese influence. Beautiful surroundings and a peaceful place to enjoy local produce prepared with flair.

This is at the end of the Paihia pier, so a wonderful location with a modern Kiwi vibe. Menu is somewhat limited, though it's always a good place to visit while down "The Bay". (with Paihia being very transient, many of the places in this area don't deliver quality meals prepared with love)

Yup - the global pizza chain, right here in Kerikeri (and much more reliable than its competitors) ... These guys deliver the goods - literally. Always fast and one of the few choices when ordering late (11pm). Worthwhile taking the time to customise your purchase and you may surprise yourself how good it ends up! You can also download the app to order...

This is the "go to" in town if you're after a pub food style meal and environment (otherwise go for The Pioneer up the road in Waipapa). "OK" meals, drink selection and service.

If you're after quintessential Kiwi "fush and chups", this is the place and much better than those in town. We'd recommend going for simple "snapper and chips" (ask for them well cooked) … Otherwise there is a heap of other takeaway items to choose from. It's also the home of the "10 scoop ice cream challenge"....

One of the oldest settlements of NZ, the Stone Store Basin is charming and a pleasant place for a gentle stroll.

This really does end up being a highlight of guests' visits and in Mark's "Top To Do List"... Traditional hot sulphur springs in a rustic environment (so much better than the sterile ones in Rotorua!)… Pools vary in heat and one can be assured of a good soak and an excellent night's sleep ahead... Great value for money and usually open until 9pm, so a great way to spend a cool evening.... (don't wear your fancy swimmers)

Essentials

It's Woolworths AU. A spacious supermarket with a reasonable selection of foods, wine & beer and open 7am to 10pm. It's the "go to" for a roastery chicken! There's also NZ owned New World a few minutes further. Waipapa (turn right from driveway) has two Convenience Stores. We tend to get fruit & veg' from home, local roadside stalls & the Saturday market.
