We are proud of our little bistro and all it offers but sometimes the itch to revisit our fine dining roots gets too strong to ignore. So we are running a special guest chef dinner with….ummm…..no guest chef.

Steve and Romina are rallying the team and pulling out all the stops to bring to you a one-off dinner that will celebrate the best of the winter bounty on offer.

On the night we will also be offering a $100 wine package that will take you across the globe showcasing some of the producers that are exciting our wine team at present.

We are limiting this event to 30 people and will feature a menu of at least ten different dishes featuring produce that is not usually found on our menu.

Winter Beer Festival

The Recreation bistro x bottleshop introduces the first of its biannual beer festivals. It promises to be a great afternoon with beers from Hawkers, Napoleone & co, La Sirene, Wolf of the willows and more. The ticket includes food served all afternoon both from The Recreation's wood burning grill focusing on food we consider Australians would call a 'barbie' as well as a well known local food vendor producing some food in an American barbecue theme.

The beers on show have been selected by the brewers as what they consider their best winter style of beer. Expect Porter, Red Ale and IPA. The ticket price also includes the first beer that you decide on from the range on show. Beers will then be sold by the 'pony' for the low-price of $5 per glass. Entertainment will be provided by a live band. Definitely an afternoon not to be missed.

Full list of brewers for this exciting event below.
