We were on the move on this occasion so only wanted a quick snack lunch. The staff were on the ball. Our chips were delicious (and hot) and the beer was fine. This is a favourite place coming through Turangi and judging by what others...around us were eating it looks like the standards are being well maintained.More

Had a fish and chips meal one night. Fish was terrible, tasted like cardboard. Staff appeared disinterested. Attended on New Years Eve. DJ supposed to be playing but could not get music system up and running by 9.15pm. Cover charge in place but for what??!

Pop in for a beer or for food as well, you will always be welcome. We have been visiting Turangi regularly for 15 years and only really began using this Tavern in recent years - more fool us as it's great!

Had a stopover in Turangi at a local motel so checked in and went for a walk. Found this place and was pleasantly surprised. Nothing fancy but warm and cosy on a miserably cold day. The staff were friendly and hospitable. Had the rump steak,...eggs chips and salad. Asked for it medium rare with runny eggs and it was bang on. For $25 I thought it was value for money. I’ll definitely be back and highly recommend itMore

We drop in often after exploring Tongariro National park, usually sunday avo. And every time the meals are spot on. The staff are friendly and attentive. Magners cider on tap and the rump steak meal. Clasic pub meals that satisfy every time. Keep up the...good work team!More

Inviting nice looking building on the outside. I stopped here for dinner and a glass of wine. It's a typical tavern but was very welcoming and warm with the log fire going. I got great service with the staff who were friendly and helpful to...me to charge my phone. The bacon burger was delicious, full of bacon, a juicy thick meat burger melting cheese and salad. Its huge, so 2 people could share and the curly fries were lovely too. Totally recommend the meals here, hats off to the chef.More

Typical small town pub. A bit run down but has nice wood fire pizzas. The toilet didn’t have a lock on...
