Powder Keg Diplomacy


 Vibrant, eclectic and scattered with quirky Victoriana, Powderkeg is spot for cocktail enthusiasts, wine lovers and beer drinkers alike.

The kitchen has proudly adopted a brand-spanking-new residency from the Californain-style pizza professionals, Joe Public.

Alongside classic American dishes and snacks, the menu boasts mouth-watering sourdough pizzas as big as 20" pies and a weekend brunch menu to soften the blow of any night before.

A go-to for week-night date-night and a place for friends to gather over pizza and a pint, the cozy mid-weeks turn into wild weekends of Bottomless Brunch and evening DJs.

Hire out the beautiful conservatory for your big 'Do' or, hey, why not make the whole venue exclusively yours for the night with your own bespoke menus and a team to cater for your every need?

Welcome to the world of Powderkeg - it's a fine place to be.
