I am a regular visitor to Mangawhai where my in-laws have retired to. Have had the misfortune to have to go to the Mangawhai tavern on several occasions and the only thing that is consistent is the absolute rubbish service there. The staff, including the owners, seem to view customers as a nuisance and if the place wasn't the only venue in the area to be able to host larger music gigs I doubt whether they would see any normal patronage. Take my advice and go to Smashed Pipi in the village or head down to the heads and visit Sandbar if you want quality and value for money.
