Pukenui Pacific Bar and Reastaurant (and takeaways)
The charm of this little eatery is that you can sit on their verandah and look out towards Pukenui Wharf and Houhora harbour, and watch the local goings on. The homemade pies are absolutely delicious, and the seafood chowder is to die for! They give a generous feed of Fish and Chips too. Just walk down from the holiday park.
We recommend the seafood platter – a big meal with a good selection of different sea food. Pauline, the chef cooks a top steak, her ‘turf to surf’ a favourite, or try the HUB works burger, too big to put your mouth around!
Houhora Big Game and Sports Fishing Club
The Houhora Big Game & Sports Fishing Club is New Zealand’s most northern fishing club. Situated just south of Pukenui township (5 minute drive from the holiday park), the ‘game club’ offers stunning views across the Houhora Harbour, has good hearty meals in a friendly environment. The bar and restaurant is open Friday & Saturday nights from 5pm, with extended hours over the holiday season. The clubrooms are superbly located and have two large rooms available for functions with full bar facilities.
The most Northern pub in New Zealand boasts some wicked history on its walls. A traditional NZ pub, you can get a drink, or pub meal (bookings essential).
