Great meal and very warm welcome. Fillet steak was cooked to perfection but after spending money on meals and drinks to be charged for wifi is a bit naughty!!

Great food and friendly and attentive service. Wide selection of craft beers. We ate twice in this restaurant, very different stuff each time. Probably the best in the neighbourhood.

Group of 15 people turned up for dinner just before kitchen closing time and they kept it open for us. Everyone's food was amazing, the spicy chicken pizza was exceptional! Good service, great food.

Tried & true long-standing pub/restaurant in Ohakune Junction. Consistently good (over 20 years of visiting here). The Lamb Shanks are worth trying. A great atmosphere for watching a rugby game.

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.
