About Us

The Poroti Tavern is operated by Arvinder Singh(Harry). They pride themselves on running a friendly and welcoming tavern, looking after their customers, and the tavern is a former winner of the Whangarei Alcohol Accord Host Responsibility Awards. This historic country pub replaces the original tavern which was burnt down in 1950. Old photos featuring the gumdigging history of the area, the Wairua Falls and the tavern can be seen on the tavern walls.
