Police are appealing for the public's help in identifying two men responsible for the terrifying aggravated robbery of a Tauranga tavern.

Footage of the incident was shown on TVNZ 2's Police Ten 7 tonight, which showed the pair entering the Judea Tavern armed with a firearm and an axe on Sunday October 1 at 9:30pm.

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Turner said during the robbery the men,"forced several patrons to the floor, threatening to kill them, and then confronted a woman staff member."

"Similar threats were made as the men demanded cash from the till and searched the premises before fleeing."

Police are calling it a "particularly nasty and aggressive robbery" which has left staff traumatised.

They are urging anyone with information about the robbery to call them immediately.
