The Pizza Barn in Waipu offers the best pizza in the district, if not all of Northland. The idea of a Scottish pizza served in New Zealand may seem a little odd, but works. The pizzas have a thin crust, as they should, but a large amount of toppings. That combination will not be to everyone's taste. But the toppings... More

This restaurant is one of my all-time favourites and we eat here regularly. But it’s so popular with locals and visitors alike that sometimes it’s difficult to get a table. There is an extensive pizza menu which includes two dessert pizzas and the prices are very reasonable. If you don’t want pizza you can choose from the ‘other meals’ menu,... More

Very busy place. Apparently every night is the same. Did not have to wait long for a table. They said the mains would be 25mins. We waited much longer, but well worth the wait though. Lots of topping. Lovely potato wedges. Will go again much earlier next time and perhaps try some of their in-house brew.

Great pizza. Great craft beer. Great service from behind the bar. Only downside Too many staff wondering the floor. Busy as usual and we were lucky to get a table If you are in the area well worth the visit

Absolutely love this place. Been here twice already. Love their pale ales and every over tried pizza is delicious. Excellent staff and service, huge seating inside, outside, lower level. Beautiful waipu style decor. I just love this place :) must stop if in the area.

Such nice staff but the pizza's? So many toppings and so so so much of them all? just awful & totally unappealing ... I am not going to lie... we threw most of the pizza out Sorry McLeods .... not my bag Other food options were ridiculously expensive. The $120 for lunch seemed a waste of money The special McLeod's... More

Arrived to a the place packed out, over a 40 min wait. Asked if we wanted to wait in the bar area on the couches. We were so comfortable we did'nt move, had drinks, super pizzas and yummy fries followed by a superb ice-cream sundae. Staff very accomodating and super chilled and relaxed at a very busy time.

Thank RosieandSandy2016
