Our Story

When you first step through the door into our premises we want to put a smile on your face.  We're not your stiff and strict 'duty managers' or 'bartenders'.  We're friends.  Come in and let us put a smile on your face with our intimate back courtyard, our range of premium and local beer, our music and our good food.  Richard, Beau, Stephanie, Jethro, Jayde and our extended staff are your hosts; real people who love entertaining.  Anomaly was opened to bring life back into an amazing building and to add to Whangarei's growing local restaurant scene.  We love our food and it's displayed in every dish. We love our music and have an eclectic taste.  No matter what's playing, we want the soundtrack to enhance your good time.  Sometimes we even organise events.

We're open six days a week, and we will always have something going on.  Whether it's a quick catchup after work or your next birthday party, this is the place you'll want to be.  We're located in central Whangarei down Bank Street.  Making sure that you have an enjoyable time in a great environment is important to us.  It's why we exist.  Come on in anytime and introduce yourself! We can't wait to see you.
