The Croft House Town Kitchen & Bar is a beautiful new addition to Brisbane City. You can pick any time to visit this beautiful restaurant because they serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and even a charcuterie menu in the afternoon with wine pairing.
Situated only a few blocks away from the heart of Brisbane city on Charlotte Street, it’s easy to swing by in your lunch break, after work or if you are on the run, pick up café-style food with a takeaway coffee through the Croft House window.
The Croft House comes with a very interesting story. Built on land that was originally used for farming, “The Croft House” seemed a perfect name. A croft house is a term used for a unit where produce from a farm is stored. A painting of this can be found inside The Croft House Town Kitchen & Bar.
Going along with the history and theme, regional produce and fresh meat from local butchers make up the food and drinks menu. This is easily recognised because of the freshness and taste. The range of meats, cheese and breads are second to none. Specialising in modern Australian food and share platters all washed down with craft beer and specialty drinks, you’ll leave full and satisfied.
In particular the Woombye Triple Cream Brie is so creamy and delicious. If you want to take it one step further, choose one of the many meat choices from the Salume menu and wrap it around and it’s a match made in heaven.
The beef brisket slider should be at the top of your list to try. This pork slider is quite spicy but the crunchy cabbage salad breaks through the heat. Another menu item featuring pork is the Pulled Pork and Potato Croquettes dipped in gribiche sauce is seriously tasty. It’s cheesy, its crunchy and it’s got pork in it so you can’t go wrong.
If you’re looking for a drink, Southside featuring gin, lemon juice and mint goes down a treat. Strong and minty but is very smoothly. It tastes very similar to a mojito.
The best way to describe The Croft House is a relaxed vibe within a sophisticated setting. They cater for all patrons no matter what time of day or meal you are looking for. Although the space is small, it makes it for a very intimate experience. The Croft House is definitely on its way to being Brisbane City resident and workers next ‘local’.
The high quality produce combined with the sophisticated decor makes this restaurant an certain addition to your 'must do' list.
