An exceptional tavern at Whangarei Heads

The food is great and the vibe is inviting

Come enjoy the rich history and great stories that sound from every corner of this unique tavern on the Whangarei Heads. The Parua Bay Tavern has a wonderful warm atmosphere and it’s a great space to be for people of all ages.

The kids will love the huge pirate ship in the garden where they can safely play and have fun, and you will enjoy our excellent selection of cold beers, quality wines and other great drinks, plus the wonderful food that’s lovingly prepared by our talented chefs.

Our friendly team enjoys looking after everyone who walks through the doors, making them feel welcomed and relaxed. We look forward to serving you while you relax and unwind and take in the extensive coastal views from the deck.

While overlooking the Bay where orcas and dolphins swim amongst the moored boats, choose a drink from our great beverage selection and try our seasonal menu which includes fresh fish and chips, calamari, generous burgers, our famous stone baked pizzas and so much more.
