Join us for the Melbourne Cup

Less controversial than The Everest, more sentimental than ‘Waltzing Matilda’ – it’s the race that stops the nation for at least ten minutes once a year.

The Melbourne Cup is on Tuesday 6 November and as usual we’ll be celebrating it in style – and we’d like you to come along stylishly attired too, as we’ll have prizes on offer!

If you’d like to join us for lunch, our full bistro menu will be available along with specials. To book a table, please call 9874 1488. And if you haven’t organised an office sweep, join in one of ours.


Feature wines: Rutherglen Estates

Our new feature wines come from Rutherglen Estates. The Victorian winery is located in the easterly corner of the Murray River valley plains, 275 kilometres north-east of Melbourne via the Hume Freeway and just 10 kilometres from the Murray River. In the mid 1800s the Rutherglen region was one of the largest wine-grape growing areas in the southern hemisphere, exporting predominantly fortified wines to England and Europe. Rutherglen Estates’ winery has been in operation from 2001.

While wintry weather lingers, enjoy the Sangiovese – a juicy, elegant wine with earthy notes. On warmer spring days the well-rounded Pinot Grigio will make an excellent drop.

Our cocktail list

Sometimes a glass of wine or a schooner of beer is not quite the ticket – which is where the cocktail comes in. Our list of cocktails includes the espresso martini (of course), the cosmopolitan, mojito, margarita and mai tai. You can see the full list here.

Our wine list

Our wine list is now available on the website – you can view our range of sparkling, white, red, rosé, dessert and fortified wines here. Our extensive selection includes prosecco and Champagne, plus a wide selection of chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, cab sauv, pinot noir and shiraz.

Fireplace library

We’ve set up a reading corner near the fireplace – that is, there’s a heap of books on the mantelpiece, so if you have some time to kill and you’re looking for something to read, there’s a selection waiting for you. And we don’t mind at all if you take the book home.


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.
