Yeah mate when I heard on the news there was a tornado I thought I wonder if Cake Tiger still went to Mangawhai. When I was younger a mate of 1 of my mates moved up there with his family & we used to go up there at least once a month. Great pub & the Island you can see when you sit in the garden bar at the back there were people who lived there & when the tide was down they used to come over on horses.
We arrived lunchtime so before the main weather action started. Didn't see the tornado but heard the town alarm go off. Wild wind through the night. Bit calmer today.
If the pub you're talking about is the Mangawhai Tavern, yep it's quite nice in there. Had a refit in the last year or so.
