The Bridgehouse Lodge is a historic venue with great food, comfy rooms, pokies gaming, a cracker beer garden patio area, functions catering and a awesome bar area located right in the heart of Warkworth.
Bridgehouse Lodge has an interesting history since it was first constructed as a timber mill in 1854. John Anderson Brown, who is widely considered the founder of Warkworth had purchased the area, and had constructed the mill at the current lodge location. He was living there along with his housekeeper back in the day.
A flour mill and bone mill was also built at the location. In 1900 the original structure was rebuilt, with the latest technology. In the 1930’s eight rooms were added to the lodge, and in the 1980’s six more rooms were added to the bar, including the conference room and function bar. The lodge has a parking lot for customers to park their vehicles safely off the road.
