The Freeport Tavern & Eatery is Mount Maunganui’s newest gastropub. We love to do the simple things well - whether it's an authentic Napoli style pizza, a fresh Little Creatures brew on tap, a delicious glass of wine in our sunny courtyard or your Havana coffee fix, The Freeport has something for everyone so come on down and meet our friendly team!




Is there anything better than BBQ? We think not and that's why we never fail to deliver the most succulent, sizzling, smoky meat you're likely to taste.

You can thank both our Pitmaster and our Southern Pride smoker for consistently creating such incredible depth of flavour in our food. Our smoker, which is all the way from Tennessee is lovingly named “Bertie” and some of our smoked meats spend up to 14 hours low & slow with Bertie. Our signature dishes are our St Louis Pork Ribs, Angus Brisket and Maple and Black Pepper Pork Belly. All of our BBQ options come with crispy crinkle cut fries and homemade coleslaw smothered in a dill buttermilk dressing. Hungry yet?

We also have some epic burgers. Simple and absolutely delicious. And if that’s not enough we do double versions of these for those big eaters. To wash it all down while sitting within our speak easy style surroundings we have a handful of Panhead Brews on tap, a few household names like Mac’s, Steinlager and Waikato Draught and a great wines and spirits selection too!

Come in and raise a fork ‘n’ glass to Bertie!
