Frankton Arm Tavern

Where all the locals go to play, it really is one of Queenstown's best kept secrets.

On the lakefront of the Frankton Arm, with the biggest garden bar in Queenstown, sheltered with a large outside open fire, it's a perfect pub by the lake to chat away the afternoon with friends.

The food is just what you expect from your local pub - simple, honest, and not too pricey. Best served with a local Central Otago Wine from Mount Difficulty, a true southern style Speights, classic Guinness or branch out to some exciting craft beers from Macs, Emerson’s, and Panhead. With friendly welcoming staff, a great view and great food, The Frankton Arm Tavern is by far the best pub in Frankton. 

Frankton Arm Tavern is also a sports bar, catering for sports lovers with 14 screens constantly playing the latest action, darts, TAB, pool table, and pokies.
