Best view on the coast since 1988

The Te Puka Tavern is an East Coast icon. Sitting on the water’s edge looking out over beautiful Tokomaru Bay, it is the ideal place to stop rest and meet the people of the East Coast. Te Puka has been feeding and watering travellers since before 1900. Rebuilt after Cyclone Bola swept the original pub off its foundations. 

The Tavern offers cafe and pub food, accommodation in modern units and powered parking for self-contained motor caravans.

The staff are able to advise you on things to see and do in the area, as well as serve you a refreshing drink from our well stocked bar.
