We scoured the region to find Ōamaru's best bars. Discover them with our Neat Places guide.
The Vintners Drop
Nestled on the main street of Kurow in what was once the local post office building, Vintners Drop is the cellar door of boutique winery Ostler Vineyards.
River-T Estate Wines
River-T Estate vineyard and tasting room has the ‘largest selection of Waitaki wine in the world’. Sit inside or amongst the rows, sip a glass and get stuck into any of their locally sourced platters.
The Fort Enfield
A classic Kiwi pub reimagined — Speights and craft pours plus simple and delicious kai — pub fare as it should be. Drive or bike the 12km from Ōamaru and reward yourself with the best steak and chips around.
Ōamaru’s Heritage Precinct is an ode to tradition. In this way it only makes sense that it’s home to Craftwork - an award winning, small scale, Belgian brewery run by brewing couple, Lee-Ann Scotti and Michael O’Brien.
