Christchurch tavern staff have been robbed at gunpoint.

A man armed with what was believed to be a shotgun made off with cash from the Tavern Harewood just before midnight on Wednesday.

There were two staff members working.

"This was a traumatic event for them, thankfully no one was injured," Detective Andrew Owens said in a statement.

The man, described as being Maori, of athletic build and wearing dark clothing, made off on foot but a police dog team could not track him.
