Sports Bar and Restaurant

170 St Hill Street, Wanganui

Contact Us


Formally known as the Wanganui RSA, in late 2018 the premises sold and re-opened as THE BARRACKS Sports Bar and Restaurant under the new owner Denise Vincent. Whilst there have been a few changes of the look, there is more than just a nod to The Old RSA.

The naming of the different areas at THE BARRACKS with a military theme pays respect to the years and service the RSA gave to those who served our country so greatly.
