The long-awaited summer holidays are just about to arrive for many of us, and the joy of having some downtime is fast approaching. Time to shut off the brain a little bit, and try not to think about too much until at least mid-January. It’s a time to wind down from a busy year, do less, and enjoy more.
Thursday is that day of the week when you are nearly at Friday, but not quite. You can already taste the weekend vibes, but you just need to push through one more day of work…. And cooking, especially as we head toward the end of the year can be the last thing on your mind….
The year is winding down, and the office Christmas parties are ramping up. The cricket is in full swing, and people are starting to let their hair down for the year. And as we move ever closer to a new year and begin thinking about new goals and challenges for 2018, we need to take the time to party and remember the year that was.
On Tuesday the 21st of November, the French Champagne was flowing, the Oysters were on ice, and the courtyard and bistro area were a hive of activity as we officially relaunched the hotel to the public after our recent renovations. While there is still a bit of work ongoing to the outside façade of the building, we are open for business, and the inside is looking the goods.
There is something about a good old fashion pub meal that keeps you coming back, and one of the best pub dishes going around, an Aussie institution, is a good Schnitzel. As Australian’s we love them. They’re a staple of most Aussie pubs’ menus, and although many aspire to perfection, not everyone gets it right for quality, price and sides.
Everyone loves Friday, and Friday's at The Brit are action-packed. We ensure that you ring in your weekend in style and shake off the working week with live music, great eats and tempting drink specials.
Christmas is not too far away and planning that all-important office Christmas lunch, dinner or drinks catch-up with your colleagues or friends can be the last thing on your mind. It’s a busy time of year, we get it, and how is it even Christmas time again?!
Maybe it’s an anniversary, a birthday, or just a Friday night! But picking the right wine for an occasion can be daunting. Maybe you are trying to impress your partner, a potential partner, or a new client. If that is the case, the staff at the Brit can help. Our drive-through has a wide selection of wines catering to many different price points and tastes, and with many varietals and wine types on offer, the choices can be a bit overwhelming…
There is always room for a classic pub meal and we have you covered there as well. Mouthwatering beef burgers and steaks cooked to perfection with your choice of sides. We have schnitzel specials Wednesday night at $12 for chicken or beef with sauces. T-bone or porterhouse steak on special Thursday’s with a glass of wine or a beer for $22, and Whiting on Fridays for $18, cooked just the way you want.
Is there anything better than Melbourne Cup? It’s the race that stops the nation and one of those days of the year when your boss is happy for a long lunch and to let loose a little bit. It’s a chance to kick your heels back with your workmates or friends, have a glass of bubbles and watch the race. Not to mention a good day and excuse to dress up a little bit.
