If you want an experience, a uniquely Redoubt experience, call in at The Redoubt Te Awamutu.

Exceptional bar and eatery since 1999

The Redoubt was established in 1999 by Michael and Faye Henderson, who wanted to "buck the trend" which was then to open Irish, English or Belgian themed bars. They did so by opening a Kiwi bar with a spice of local history.

What is a redoubt?

Redoubts were fortifications or camps used during the local fighting between the Maori and Europeans in the 1800's. The dictionary meaning of Redoubt is a safe haven or a place of refuge, which is quite apt really as the bar now serves to uplift the weary by bringing good food, good cheer and great beer to the locals and visitors of Te Awamutu.

Providing refuge at these times
