All seasonal menus at The Workshop Kitchen focus on fresh local New England produce. A wood fired oven & grill are at the heart of the open kitchen – both are fired up daily with the finest Pilliga Western Red Ironbark which imparts a unique smoked flavour. All beef is sourced locally where possible from Paul Avery’s Mountain View Farm to Jack’s Creek Beef – two time winner of the World’s Best Steak.

The restaurant’s outstanding wine list received a 2 Glass rating in Australia’s 2018 Wine List of the Year Awards – the first in the region to ever receive this accolade. The Workshop Kitchen is open daily from 6.30am for breakfast, lunch, dinner & every public holiday.

Escape into the intimate & refined Coal Bunker Bar open every day until late. With bespoke American oak timber furniture, plush velvet panelling & stylish leather seating, settle in to sip cocktails, sample local craft beers or partake from the extensive global roaming whisky cabinet. The restaurant also serves up delicious bar snacks & platters of cured meats & cheese to curb your hunger.

A boutique private dining room, boardroom & contemporary conference centre are available for meetings, special events & weddings

The hotel is easily identified by the obelisk at the front of the property. This was erected to recognise Tamworth as the first town in Australia & the southern hemisphere to provide its residents with electric street lighting. The hotel was built on the original power station or ‘powerhouse’ site – hence the name & celebration of this intriguing history throughout the hotel.

For motorbike enthusiasts, a visit to the onsite Powerhouse Motorcycle Museum is a must.

The Workshop Kitchen is the proud recipient of the 2018 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence & 2018 2 Glass Award.
