The first Hotel was built in around 1858. Early days saw mainly farmers and the timber workers as the main patrons. The railway line was completed in 1885 and things went well until the wooden hotel burnt down and the present Pub was built on the same site in 1910.
With the cement works up and running in the mid-twenties the hotel served the community for the next 70 years. Since then, tourism from the mainland and international visitors has become the main economic driver in the region.
Camping is available at the rear of the Pub and there are 6 rooms that are operational for accommodation.
