"This was exactly what we wanted to create, somewhere people want to come to take a load off or catch up with friends"

The Winterless North has a new hot spot. Hospo legends Sophie and Matt have recently opened the doors to Local Talent Taverna, a new go-to spot for beers, natural wines, and Greek food with a Mediterranean inspired menu. You can also enjoy several rounds of pool. We sat down with Sophie, one half of Local Talent Tav to chat about their new restaurant and life up in Whangārei.
