With seasonal menus of classic comfort food such as Aged Steaks, Lamb Shanks and Fish and Chips, there is surely something for your hungry tummy!

Enjoy a range of New Zealand wines, fantastic variety of beers from local brews to international favourites like Heineken, to beverages much closer to the heart such as Jameson Irish Whiskey.

Open 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.

But then.....what is a redoubt?

Redoubts are fortifications or camps used during the local fighting between the Maori and Europeans in the 1800's. It is 'a safe haven or a place of refuge,' which is why the bar 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
