Forester’s Restaurant & Bar
With a modern Australian take on all your gastropub favourites, there’s a little something for everyone at Foresters. Breakfast has a couple of twists on brekky industry standards like smashed avo on toast with quinoa loaf topped with hummus, dukkha and cashew cream. Or if ‘dessert first’ speaks your language, tuck into soufflé pancakes with brulee custard, served with passionfruit, raspberries and mandarin shavings to top it off.
And for dinner? Well. You can’t go past a hefty serving of the juiciest parmigiana with prosciutto, and a side serving of nothing less than Aussie’s finest bread: damper. The humble Pavlova even gets a spruce up and be sure to ask about the background of the Lady Marmalade cocktail.
More inklings of the history of the building can be spotted everywhere from the popcorn topped espresso martinis, reminiscent of its days as a theatre from 1910 onwards, to the centuries old brickwork that has been weaved into the modern aesthetic.
