We are Bridge Estate

About us

A beautiful cellar door showcasing the best of the local Gisborne experience – the wonderful building has a 120 year old history and is nestled in the vines right by the Waipaoa Bridge in Matawhero at the entrance to Gisborne.

Formally the site of the ‘Old Bridge Hotel’ the unique character building and gardens offer a relaxed place to come and enjoy wine, beer and food with friends, colleagues and family.

Come and soak up a typical Gizzy atmosphere – sit back, relax and enjoy our food menu, wine tasting from surrounding wineries or try local craft beers.

It’s a perfect place to hire for a special event like a wedding gathering, a big birthday, baby shower or just a Sunday arvo in the sun with friends.

Tracey and Doug took over ownership of the Bridge Estate in February 2021 and with Doug being originally from Gisborne, they are keen to ensure the Bridge continues to be a local social gem.

Focused on bringing together great company, delicious platters, fantastic local wines and a wide selection of beers – whether you’re a tourist in town or one of our regulars we’ve got something for you all year round.
