It was only recently that we spotted the news that landmark Manakau Hotel was giving up on being a restaurant and cafe to switch to being rental apartments. See Manakau pub goes residential in October 2017. Now, already, they’ve switched back again.
The Horowhenua Chronicle of 27 October 2017 reports that the owners are looking for leaseholders to reopen the pub as a cafe and bar. But then the owners say if they can’t find someone within the next 2 months they’ll turn the entire building into tourist accommodation.
So, with any luck we’ll have Sunday roast sussed again.
