Aratapu Tavern

Tex-Mex in Dargaville

This welcoming country pub, around 7km from Dargaville on the road to Poutu Point, is deservedly famous for its lamb shanks, but also of flavour-packed interest is the Tex-Mex food, including tacos and burritos, prepared by the bubbly Texan co-owner. There's occasional live music in the garden bar on Saturdays.
