Our Story

The Redoubt Bar & 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 back 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 mate’s place’ feel.

With an ever-changing seasonal menu and full menu available all day, you will be satisfied.

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.
