Mussel Inn

Pub in Takaka

You will find one of NZ's most beloved brewery-taverns halfway between Takaka and Collingwood. The Mussel Inn is rustic NZ at its most genuine, complete with creaking timbers, a rambling beer garden with a brazier, regular music and other events, and hearty, homemade food (snacks $6 to $19, dinner $30). Try the signature Captain Cooker, a brown beer brewed naturally with mānuka.
