About The Brigham

Since it first opened in 2006, The Brigham has enjoyed a growing reputation as a popular wedding and function venue and local restaurant/café.

Certainly the beautiful, established 3 acre gardens of The Brigham and the attractive facility with its very flexible catering spaces provide a wealth of options.

Now, new owner Gajraj Singh Yadav (Raj) is taking The Brigham even further, with the extension to full five days a week brunch/lunch café services from 9 to 3pm 

Whatever the occasion – function  or meal - Raj and the team’s focus lies in providing a selection of delicious yet affordable ‘home-made’ contemporary New Zealand cuisine using quality ingredients, ideally sourced from the local area. All in a pleasant, friendly and informal environment that welcomes every guest.

Raj’s own background spans over 23 years’ experience in a number of Auckland’s international hotels such as the Heritage Hotels, Millennium and Copthorne Hotels as Executive Chef, and Group Food and Beverage Manager with VR Hotels. He has also worked as a chef in restaurants such as GPK.  

He knows that the best restaurants and function venues combine good food with friendly, efficient service, a welcoming atmosphere and an air of relaxed professionalism.

He and the team aim to make The Brigham an even more vibrant, fun, friendly place to come; the local for the growing neighbourhoods; the perfect locale for any celebration.  And the place you’d happily recommend to all your family, friends and associates.
