The Powderkeg Restaurant & Bar is an Ohakune institution. Established in 1989, this is “the place” to experience New Zealand après ski. The Powderkeg is the heart of the Powderhorn Chateau and is where the most of the fun tends to begin! Situated at the start of The Old Coach Road, The Powderkeg guarantees a fun and hospitable atmosphere! Many a tall story is told over a cold beer seated at the unforgettable wood furniture.

“The Keg” as it is fondly known, is famous for its generous portions of fresh, seasonal cuisine.

If you are planning to visit with a large group (larger than 15) it is recommended that contact is made with the Restaurant Manager so we are able to advise of the best solution for dining together.

The Powderkeg operates by first in first served.  A waitlist will operate if required once all restaurant tables are allocated.
