A New Zealand pub, believed to be the oldest of its kind in the country, has arrived on the market.

The historic Riverhead Tavern, located on the edge of the upper port of Waitematā, began trading in 1857, and is understood to be the oldest river tavern in New Zealand.

But on Thursday it was announced that owners Stephen and Paula Pepperall had decided to sell themselves after buying the property in 2010.

The current owners Stephen and Paula Pepperell want to go beyond business.

The main tavern building has council capital at $ 3,475,000, but the business has other properties on adjacent land.

The sales publicist said the current owners have invested about $ 6.42 million since they bought it nearly a decade ago.

"The iconic offer in West Auckland provides a huge opportunity with a spectacular coastal location easily accessible by road and ferry with a large pontoon, dock and path leading directly to the venue," said New Zealand Hotel and Tourism Director Nick Thompson.

The tavern is located on an area of ​​5000 square meters and is home to a restaurant called The Landing, a bar known as Portage Place and The Boat House.

Although only a 25-minute drive from the CBD, many security guards travel to the site using one of two ferry companies sailing the Waitematā harbor.

Located in northwestern Auckland, Riverhead is home to only 2000 people, but has given itself a name for a popular movie set location.

In 2014, Brokenwood Mystery filmed scenes in a rural suburb.

Bridge to Terabithia, a 2007 movie was also shot in the area.

The tavern is being marketed through a campaign of interest that closes on November 14th.
