The latest addition to Mount Maunganui's thriving gastropub scene, The Freeport offers unbeatable pizza and a craft beer for every occasion.

Where summer is an all-year affair, The Freeport is a free-spirited haven with palm trees aplenty and a stunning outdoor area where you can enjoy fabulous company and even more fabulous grub. The whole eatery is playful and fun, with candy-stripe walls, twinkling lights and informal benches and bar stools for you to park your behind on; in the evening it's as wistful as it is romantic.

But, whoever you've decided to dine with, you're guaranteed a good feed. Their pizzas are made in the traditional Napoli style and fired up in their pizza oven. Their selection includes a salty prosciutto number as well as gorgonzola with pancetta and caramelised onion. Alternatively, there are pub classics, like fish and chips, a chicken burger and prawn pasta with heaps of fresh basil.

Time to choose your liquid fun! Little Creatures, Mac's and Steinlager flows freely from their beer taps and you can find household names in bottle form. If beer ain't your thing, kickstart your evening with a gunfire espresso martini; if that doesn't put a spring in your step, nothing will!

Excellent food and service. Brand new restaurant with great atmosphere. The oven fired pizzas are the best and the calamari cooked perfect. Love the sauces. Happy hour drinks were an added bonus. Would definitely return. A++++++

Saturday night out kid free , Freeport is quite funky decor would of happily brought the baby ; friendly staff and lovely music outside area where we sat . Calamari entree and corn entree both tasty dishes but do need seasoning really lacking and cauliflower was a miss for us , no texture or seasoning and really over cooked plus portion is huge for a share plate - mains were amazing really happy with those my salad was tasty crunchy fresh and whipped feta so good and partners steak and potatoes were spot on . Friendly attentative service we had a great night out thanks !

Cannot fault the service, the young gentleman was polite, kept checking that we were okay, that our drinks were okay
Had a bit of wait time for our meal to arrive and longer for the deserts to come out, we were going to leave without having deserts it took awhile
Had never been to Freeport.... would we go back..... probably not Sorry
