A Tale of
Great Food & Atmosphere


For over 21 years, Dickens Inn has served Whangarei locals and visitors alike with outstanding food, and from the cellar a large range of craft beers and fine wines. We’re a family friendly restaurant, and in winter months our roaring fire keeps the cold at bay, providing a warm, relaxing atmosphere where friendships are built and stories (both tall and true) are told.


During our long lazy summer months, enjoy alfresco dining on our cobblestoned lane, taking in the sights and sounds of Whangarei city from the comfort of your shaded table. Watch the big game live on our large screens while relaxing with an ice-cold Heineken or Monteiths on tap, and enjoy a range of tasty bar snacks and sharing platters in our comfortable café/restaurant space.


Open from 8.30am until late, 364 days of the year, Dickens Inn welcomes families and larger group bookings, as well as private events and functions; simply ask us for more information!
