The Riverhead has been a house of refreshment and conviviality for around 150 years. In that time it has seen many events and stories come and go, countryfolk and townspeople, fishermen and farmers, smugglers and clergymen, marauding riders of the night through to social visits from the local constabulary. All have played their part in giving The Riverhead a rich stable of stories befitting the oldest riverside tavern in New Zealand.
We are currently building a new addition to our Boat House area which will enable us to offer all year comfort to our guest with improved catering facilities. Whilst this is being completed the The Landing Restaurant and the Portage Bar will be still open for business. Bookings are recommended for the Landing Restaurant.
The Boat House will re-open in November 2014
