On a Monday night there weren't many choices in Mangawhai but we certainly lucked in coming here. A popular spot judging by the dining room.

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!
