Don’t be fooled by its name: the Star and Garter Hotel is a fully-functioning pub and restaurant at the heart of Coromandel Town. The venue has kept the simple Kauri wood aesthetics from its previous incarnations as a general store for miners and a drapery. Live music, modern gaming machines, pool tables and a range of quality food, wine, cocktails, beers and spirits perfectly come together to bring the building into the present.

The Coromandel Peninsula is famous for its abundance of seafood. If that sounds like a treat and you’ve found yourself in the town of Whitianga, Squids Bar and Restaurant is a definite must-visit. The venue takes pride of the fact it is the only one of its kind in Mercury Bay to offer locally-sourced seafood delicacies for bar and restaurant patrons to relish. As a bonus, you’ll get to enjoy some lovely views of the marina while you’re chilling out over meals and drinks.
