The Story

Built in 1903 in the what has become the heart of Matakana Village, The Matakana is a bit of an institution.

Its been through several changes in its long life. It was built from the timber of a single kauri tree by the village post master and after his death became a boarding house for dairy factory workers.

It was a restaurant of note in the 80's run by a Frenchman with a michelin star tatooed on his rump. Three farming couples and three city couples revitalised and upgraded the old girl in 2012 into a cool, relaxed and family friendly village pub.

Duncan and Hannah Anderson and their partners vision is to provide a relaxed friendly environment, with fantastic service and a great selection of wines, beers and fresh food at really good value.

Settle In

Drop in for a beer, or settle in for the afternoon in our garden bar for a glass of locally-produced wine, a plate of oysters or a hand made burger. Listen to live music or dine with us and try our extensive food and drinks menu including the best steaks in the north.
