Classic Kiwi Dining





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.

Fundraising quiz nights

Being a local business with the community in mind, we are inviting local Schools and Community organisations to jump on board with our fun, interactive and hassle free evenings. From something as exciting and fun as a quiz night, you could potentially raise in excess of $2500.

We provide FREE venue hire, FREE nibbles and have the whole evening arranged. Quiz nights generally work best and have the ability to cater for a larger number of people. If you have any ideas or thoughts for a fundraising evening, we are more than happy to accommodate and make it a successful and enjoyable evening where possible. We can also help to arrange extras like raffles and auctions to increase the funds raised.

For more information on fundraising quiz nights, please contact Functions and Events Manager  by phone - (04) 477 4057.
