Located in Johnsonville, 1841 is here to bring back some good old kiwi hospitality.

about 1841


With a hearty menu, a variety of top beverages, weekly entertainment, plenty of live sport & gaming, the owners of 1841 aim to please everyone from the family group through to the hardened sports' fan.

At 1841 we are all about the local hospitality. The northern suburbs are where we were raised and schooled, are our home, our work and our community. We look forward to providing the neighbourhood and those visiting with great food and beverages, entertainment and warm professional service, as well as supporting local initiatives and engaging in friendly banter. 1841 – some things never change.
