The Redoubt Bar and eatery was born in June 2006 after Jacob and Kelly Henderson had served their ‘Apprenticeship’ by leasing The Redoubt in Te Awamutu for three years previously.

They identified a need in Matamata for a dynamic, community focused bar and Eatery in this thriving town. On the pack of strong local support, a popular stopping point for travellers and Hobbiton tourists, The Redoubt has established itself as a must for those in Matamata.

With walls displaying local Matamata happenings, heroes and villains it provides a comfortable ‘at your mates place’ feel. With an ever changing seasonal menu with legend dishes like the homemade Hash stack, fish ‘n’ chips in paper and locally sourced Silver fern scotch fillet it satisfies the hungry.

The thirsty can enjoy a range of New Zealand wines, fantastic tap beers, including the Monteiths range and international favourite Heineken to General Manager Clifford Williams (the only Jamaican in Matamata) personally selected cocktail list.

If you want an experience, a uniquely Redoubt experience call in at The Redoubt Matamata. Good cheer, good food, great beer.
