Powder Keg Diplomacy


POWDERKEG is the recently refurbished and relaunched St John's Hill.

They specialise in premium cocktails, wines and beers, to go along with their new Small Plates Menu, meaning they are perfect for a casual drink and a bite, or more substantial eating incorporating dishes from they selection of aged cuts of meat.

They have a great weekend brunch from 10:30am, and Sunday lunch from noon. 

Reservations for eating are taken, and drinks parties (when incorporating some food) are subject to availability.
