Eat + Drink

In the diary of Reverend Knopwood, Tasmania's first Chaplain, he recorded that when he dined with his friends on 10th Oct, 1804, the "piece de resistance" was emu, which he considered to be "very excellent". For centuries before that, Tasmanian Aboriginal men hunted forrester kangaroos, the women skillfully targeted seals and dived for abalone and crayfish. The haul was shared around the fire, sharing anecdotes of the hunting expiditions and stories about the Dreaming. Tasmania's menus have changed dramatically over the years, but one thing has remained the same... we still love dining with friends.

Our Restaurant

Led by Saffire Freycinet’s former Head Chef Simon Pockran, Old Wharf Restaurant's seafood focus perfectly complements the backdrop of passing cray boats. From the restaurant's dockside deck, you'll be in thanking distance of our hardy fishermen.

Locally sourced ingredients are delivered in a menu that hinges on Tasmania’s pure produce and latest catch. Opt for the Chef’s Table experience for five courses from the open-style kitchen served with stories of produce origin and some ripping Tassie yarns.

Open Monday to Sunday from 06:30 to 21:30 for breakfast, lunch, dinner and light snacks. Call 03 6210 7602 to make a booking.

Our Bar

The Story Bar is inspired by the egalitarian nature of Tasmanian society, where class divisions are less obvious. With this in mind, our bar team offer everything from draught beer to the finest wine and spirits in an enigmatic watering hole, adorned with newspaper headlines from decades past.

To truly understand Tasmania, one must know its people and how they interact - The Story Bar makes for an iconic backdrop for both locals and visitors alike.

Open Monday to Sunday from 15:00 to 23:00.

Evolve Spirits Bar

Evolve Spirits Bar...
Opening Soon!

Humans have long tried to understand our world, explaining its complexities through theories of spirituality, biology, geography and astronomy. This insatiable thirst for understanding fuelled a period of unprecedented discovery during the 1800s with the mapping of our globe, the industrial revolution and the collection of countless botanical, zoological and geological artefacts.  Our minds expanded with curiosity as mysterious fossils were uncovered; answering some questions, but presenting thousands more.  And just as palaeontologists have captured our imagination with incredible beasts from centuries past, so too have the world’s master distillers by hand-crafting the finest spirits through alchemy of earth’s elements. Such spirits are capable of explaining the complexities of our world and are celebrated, wholeheartedly, at Evolve Spirits Bar.

Lounge

The Lounge is our special place – its open fire is our storytelling nucleus. A local stonemason crafted the fireplace with shared stories in mind. A pre-dinner crisp white with Pacific oysters often encourages fables to flow. The Lounge is trimmed with artefacts representative of the traditional Tasmanian Aboriginal toolkit and all have been made by Aboriginal people today, proudly decendant of the First Tasmanians.
