The Bago Tavern is your place to enjoy

the way it suits you

After a tough day sunning yourself at Port Macquarie’s Flynns Beach, surfing at Lighthouse Beach, fishing on the Hastings River or walking one of the Bago National Park trails, we’re ready to help you unwind. We have cold beers on tap and our chefs are on-hand to sort you out with a healthy  or substantial meal – you choose.

Independently owned and run by Peter and Judy since 2005, the Bago Tavern is as far away from a faceless, lifeless, generic-looking pub as you can get. The custom-designed, round-roof dining room (complete with stained glass windows) is just one way we set ourselves apart. Our 15ft giraffe out front is the other.

About that… just how the Jerry the giraffe ended up at the Bago Tavern is a secret Peter guards well. To find out you’ll have to catch him on a chatty day and ask nicely.
Whether you found us because of Jerry the giraffe, you’re local, here on your holidays or simply passing through, we assure you a warm welcome. Put your order in with our friendly bar and restaurant staff and settle into an area of the tavern that suits you.

Maybe you are a parent/s with little people in tow and would love a safe enclose playground then check out the covered outdoor area or the beer garden overlooking the kids’ playground – they can go crazy out in the Bago Tavern enclosed playground and not get in any trouble, so you can relax.

Coming in for a quick drink after work? Pull up a table in the front beer garden or park yourself in Marty’s Sports Bar, which is named after Peter’s dad. This is where you’ll find screens showing the game and there’s Keno and games room nearby if you fancy it. For evening dinner and special occasions needing a more formal setting, reserve a table in the main restaurant. All we ask is you bring a healthy appetite.

Our menu offers:

  • award-winning burgers,
  • delicious schnittys,
  • locally sourced fresh seafood,
  • mouth-watering specials and
  • kid-friendly options

Diners who have recently visited the Bago Tavern describe our food as ‘delicious’, ‘great’ and ‘marvellous’. We have lost count how many mentioned our impressive portion sizes.

So, if you’re searching for a Wauchope restaurant that satisfies on taste, portion and price, you’ve found it. Find out more and make a booking here.
