The Grace Darling Hotel
Whether you want pub classics with a crafty twist, a cheeky red taken on a Chesterfield by an open fire, a candlelit dinner for two in a leafy atrium, or a special occasion in a spooky-cellar-turned-private-dining-room - The Grace Darling Hotel is the joint for you.
The rustic, no-nonsense menu includes a north-side pub staple - chicken parmagiana - ditching the standard recipe for a classy terracotta bake of char-grilled thigh, jamon, slow-roasted tomato and parmesan.
Choose from seasonal produce, free range and organic fare, and try a drop from our boutique wine list (focused on locally produced and small-owner growers) or one of a large selection of local and international beers. House-made pickles, preserves and local cheeses are served up peasant-style, alongside slow-cooked Sunday roasts cooked to juicy perfection in traditional cast iron pots.
Open-plan kitchen dining
Away from the bustling main bar, grab a candle-lit table in the kitchen dining room. With a front-row view of a working kitchen, you can pick up some real-world know-how on fresh, seasonal food and its preparation without lifting a finger (or the TV remote).
Our bluestone atrium offers many of the benefits of outdoor dining, without the weather. Perch amongst the greenery beneath the glass ceiling, or pull up a church pew in the corner for a quiet meal - lunch or dinner.
Private Underground Bar and Dining Room
Legend has it that the Collingwood Football Club was founded in this underground cavern. Today it's a semi-secret hideaway for private celebrations, featuring a full bar and a banquet table seating up to 28 guests. For parties, this ship's galley space can host 50 to 70 people for stand-up drinks, with DJ decks, a PA and anything else you might need to party like a pirate. (Or a magpie, for that matter.)
