The Smokehouse Mapua

It all started many years ago by a passionate local in a boat shed on a sleepy wharf in Mapua under the famous Nelson sun, doing something he loved - delicately hot smoking by hand premium seafood using traditional brick kilns with natural manuka shavings and a refreshingly simple brine.  Many years later, this same care, commitment and method of smoking is as strong as it ever was.

From rich and creamy pates, succulent pies and chowders, to silky textured white fish.

Its 100% natural & preservative free hot smoked seafood delivering perhaps the most authentic taste of the coast you'll find.


Our onsite takeaways are a Nelson favourite.

Come and savor our delicious fish and chips while relaxing on the wharf where you can enjoy the natural beauty of the Waimea Estuary.

Or grab a cool drink from the wine bar opposite or the local craft brewery where an easy going band is often playing in the courtyard.
