Welcome to the Tin Hut in Tauherenikau, one of Wairarapa’s longest-standing and much-loved pubs.

This historic pub is over 160 years old, and has been a vibrant community hub throughout the centuries for locals and visitors alike. Now with a new owner, long-time local Kate Sullivan, the Tin Hut reopened in 2016 with a fresh lick of paint and reinvigorated menu. Enjoy New Zealand-inspired cuisine and gastro pub classics, like a Sunday roast, the Tin Hat burger and Monteith's Pilsner beer-battered fish and chips. Plus there are gluten-free options and tasty vegetarian dishes available, from chickpea burgers to mushroom fettuccine, there’s something for everyone at the Tin Hut!

There’s plenty to explore around the historic region, including Greytown, New Zealand’s oldest planned inland town, just 5 minutes drive away. The Tin Hut, located on State Highway 2, is the perfect spot to relax after a day’s adventure and enjoy a pint of nearby-brewed craft beer, or a stunning glass of wine from the local vineyards.

Great venue with a lovely outdoor area for the kids to run around. Peacocks, chickens, ducks and a small creek entertained the kids. Friendly, attentive staff who happily sorted a highchair and the kids meals first. Would totally recommend them if you have kids and the meals were beautiful, with reasonable pricing.

Wonderful dining experience at The Tin Hut.
Children were entertained by Solly the dog and the food was delicious. Tasty pork belly and scummy burgers that the kids enjoyed, not leaving anything on their plates! Hospitable staff topped off a great evening. Definitely be back !

Tin Hut not tin pot. Really great Sunday roast with lashings of good service. Starter, beef with all trimmings and comfort food in the form of a generous serving of apple crumble. Not a bad ways to enjoy a Sunday evening. With First Table it was first class.
