Awakino Hotel

Pub Food in Pio Pio, Awakino & Mokau

The Awakino River spills into the Tasman at Awakino, where boats shelter in the estuary while locals find refuge at the rustic Awakino Hotel. Look forward to hearty meals, including whitebait fritters, and a pleasant garden bar. There's also decent accommodation (single/double $50/90), including double rooms with private bathrooms.
