While the weather is cold, we’re pouring the new, seasonal Winter Hop Ale from Young Henry’s - it’s an India Red Ale that ‘combines warming malt flavours of Anzac biscuit and bready fruitloaf with a full hit of classic Aussie and American West Coast hop aroma and rich mouthfeel.’ Perfect to drink while you’re tucking into hearty winter dishes.
Also new on tap: FRED, an India Pale Ale from Murray’s Brewing . The folks from Murray’s say that FRED is ‘aggressively late hopped with a house blend of hops from the US Pacific Northwest. It has the classic US IPA hop aroma and flavour of big citrus, tropical fruit and pine notes throughout. An assertive bitterness is balanced by the sweetness of the pale, crystal and wheat malt additions.’
Our feature wines this month are the fresh, lively Paracombe Pinot Gris and, for those looking for a new red for winter drinking, the Fratelli Nistri Chianti. The chianti is a mix of sangiovese, cabernet and merlot grapes.
Ask for our feature white or red at the bar.

Our new feature wines are created by The Grayling. The sauvignon blanc comes from the Marlborough region in New Zealand and is said to be a well-balanced drop with crisp acidity. The pinot noir comes from Waipara, NZ, and is ‘fleshy, showing good palate weight with a well-integrated lingering aftertaste’.
Ask our bar staff for the feature wine – or, of course, ask for it by name.
For the past few years we have sent a letter to each member during the month of their birthday, offering a main meal in our bistro free with any other meal purchased for the same or greater value.
We’ve decided to do away with the letters and take advantage of new-fangled technology. If you are a member and you visit our bistro during your birthday month, you will be offered the chance to redeem your birthday meal at that point or later in the month. Please note that the offer is for the month of your birthday only.
If you have any difficulties redeeming this birthday special, please speak to a member of staff.
Our ever-popular Tuesday Night Trivia is on each week at 7.30 p.m.
We regularly host functions and events in our function room space and also in the beer garden (and sometimes both – depending on the size of the function!). If you’re organising a function for work, family or friends, you can reserve the function room at no extra charge. We also have a function menu.
For function enquiries, please call us on 9874 1488.
