About
Birdwoods Gallery is a very special place in the heart of Hawke's Bay. Set in the countryside just 3km from Havelock North Village, Birdwoods Gallery and its small companion, the Birdwoods Sweet Shop, are a 'must see' for young and old. Three historic buildings have been relocated to this pretty rural setting and transformed to become a distinctive and enchanting visitor attraction. Enjoy our famous morning or afternoon tea or come for a delicious garden lunch with family or friends. (Lunch bookings recommended). End it off with a delicious fruit ice-cream from our little Ice Cream Shop (summer time) or an espresso coffee and cake. Birdwoods is a place 'Where Everything has a Story'.

Birdwoods was the setting for our small family wedding and was outstanding on all fronts; the setting, faculties, the service from Louise and her staff and the HB weather.
We throughly recommend Birdwoods for a visit/lunch and small functions, you won’t be disappointed!

Stunning setting. Loved the sculptures, the gardens, craft shop and lolly shop. We visited for morning tea and the French Press coffee was exceptional. The savory and sweet scones were simply superb. Presentation and service was absolutely first class. Highly recommended and advise booking as we can well imagine this venue being exceptionally popular.

I am a scone conneseur and I give the Birdwoods one 5 stars - very large and light, served with lovely jam and plenty of cream. Accompanied by a large plunger of coffee, it made a lovely mid-morning meal. The sculpture garden is delightful and I happily spent hours there. The sweet shop is wonderful.

For a relaxed wholesome lunch - go here. It's all in the visual detail and flavour here. Be sure to get a homemade lemonade. Beautiful setting with friendly happy staff. A wonderful family run business.

Came for lunch for a group of ladies and were seated outside and where we were sited the was no shade offered so extremely hot and uncomfortable. We were a group of 8 and all of our meals came out one out at a time over 1/2 hour, even forgot a couple of meals, and we had to ask for our drinks that were not served until after most had received their meals. On leaving it took 15 minutes for the wait staff to process our payments. I understand that due to covid they are short staffed but this was way more than being short staffed, this was totally an example of staff not being trained.

What an awesome place, we just stopped in to look in the shop but as we wandered around the grounds, we wished we had stopped in for brunch. They have done an amazing job with this place, its worth a stop.

Super discovery

We were recommended this by another gift shop at the Black barn winery. Oh my golly we are so glad we went!

Housed in an old chapel the selection of gifts for sale is very eclectic including a lot from Africa, specifically Zimbabwe.

What I love the most though was the garden. They have a large number of outdoor sculptures or made by African and New Zealand sculptors. Arranged on plinths around an artificial duckpond (baby ducks were very cute), the bird song and the layout of the little paths with mature trees giving partial shade showed off the sculptures beautifully.

Had lunch here. Beautiful setting sitting out under the trees and the amazing garden art. The food was beautiful I had slow cook beef on brioche. It was beautiful. The meat just broke up on your fork and melted in your mouth.
Then the icing on the cake is the old fashioned Lolly shop. Yummy so many old type lollies.
