We went to Brickmill for a meal for our Wedding Anniversary. Arrived at 3pm and was told that kitchen had closed for the day even though closing time was not for another hour. Was really disappointed, either you are open until closing time or not.

We stopped in here for a brunch on our way to Hanmer and everything was great. The food, coffee, service and car parking was all exactly as it should be. Happy to recommend.

I came here with a couple of friends for lunch,they had thai chicken salads which were good, but i had the best meal it was a steak sandwich which had real onion rings and yummy chips,will definitely come here again and will probably order the same! We also had a cake to share which was very good!!!

If you are heading from Christchurch north on Hwy 1, take the time to stop for breakfast or lunch at the Brick Mill Cafe. We had an excellent breakfast and purchased great pastries and snacks for the drive north. Super service, great coffee and if you happen to be there when the shops around the cafe are open, even better.... More

Stopped here for lunch on a lazy Sunday. There was a deli selection, but ordered my usual bacon & eggs plus a banana smoothie. There was a hot nor'west breeze so I sat outside in the sheltered garden which was very pleasant. The smoothie came in minutes, it was Ok. The meal arrived soon after and I was very happy... More

1st visit on a weekday for lunch - stunning, outside or inside dining, beautiful weather, a stream, trees, and sheltered dining area - even had ducks lazing on the side of the stream. Old brick mill and lovely features. Meals were superb, filling and excellent size portions. Same visit 3 months later on a Saturday and it was horrible. Outside... More

We were out looking for somewhere to have lunch, yesterday. It was a wet and miserable day. We drove past the Brick Mill and then said to each other "why don't we go there". So we did a u turn, safely and returned to the Cafe. Car park was full. Good sign. We went in and every table was full.... More
