Old style pub but service good, and good food. Atmosphere was friendly, nice view across the water with nice cool breeze on hot day.

Went with a group of friends for a few drinks that became dinner. So glad we decided to stay and have a bite to eat. Great food and service. and the view over the water is a big plus.

Had a lovely lunch at mangawhai tavern last week. We sat out side and looked over the estuary. Food was good for pub food and very acceptable. Service was attentive, polite and friendly

I think this is the only place in Mangawhai you can get a pint and look at the water! Very decent pub food (mini burgers/sliders are great) and friendly service. Great venue for the summer concerts. Ill be back again!

We've come here many times over the years. Love the live, free bands that are sometimes in just outside the restaurant and bar area. Nice outlook and atmosphere - much better now with the trees cleared. Pretty good, average pub food with average prices. The bar staff are usually pretty friendly but don't cope well with the summer crowds. Concerts... More

A group of 7 of us planned to hit the tavern after hearing they were under new management. Relaxed would be my main word used for our visit. We had to source our own menu, cutlery and clean our own table outside up. even had people visiting our table during our visit, to ask if we were done with our... More

A little gem in Magical Mangawhai. Excellent gigs play through summer if you want a great night out or stop by for a good old fashioned pub lunch. Great spot!!

We went for our 5th wedding anniversary, organised babysitters etc and were looking forward to great night out. It started well with wonderful entrees, however it took nearly 90mins for the mains to arrive. We enjoyed the flavours,as the food was delicious but feel let down by the huge wait which detracted from our evening. They did take the wine... More
