Owned by local legends Jess and Zak Olsen, The Butter Factory is located in a gorgeous century-old stone building, the coolest place in summer and cosiest in winter. Jess brings over 15 years of hospitality experience and her passion for food, hospitality and all the creative arts to this well-loved bar, and has cultivated an outstanding team both front and back of house.


Discover a fab range of craft beers and unique New Zealand wines, as well as freshly-brewed coffee and killer cocktails. From the kitchen, tuck into hand-made pizza, sharing platters and gourmet burgers (including veggie/vegan patties), or opt for pub classics like chilli beef nachos or baby back ribs, there is even options for our littlest customers.


The Butter Factory is proud to support the town community, whether that’s sourcing fresh ingredients from Whangarei farmers, or showcasing the latest creative talent on the stage.   From burlesque shows, poetry jams, stand up comedy, Te Reo Maori evenings and live music, every day is different!
