Te Puka Tavern

Pub Food in Pacific Coast Hwy

This well-run pub with cracker ocean views is a cornerstone of the community, keeping everyone fed and watered (good burgers), and offering visitors a place to stay. Four natty split-level, self-contained units sleep up to six (doubles $160, extra person $30) and there's room for four campervans (powered sites $15, unpowered sites free).

The pub was for sale when we visited: we hope the new owners keep up the good work.
