The Brass Barrel
The Brass Barrel is a cool gastropub style eatery and bar in Rosalie Village, serving everything from delicious breakfasts to great value casual meals and share plates, beer, wine and cocktails.
A picket fence and BBQ tables out front catch the breeze, making a great place to kick back with a well-brewed coffee and Double Smoked Bacon and Eggs in the morning, a cold beer and Salmon Tacos n the afternoon or glass of wine and the signature Brass Barrel Parmy by night.
Meantime inside there’s stools at a metal-pressed bar or at a bench overlooking the street (great for people-watching) and a cosy brick-walled space for a more intimate dining experience.
Food at The Brass Barrel is a standout, with a creative and talented chef who takes classics and turns them into something memorable.
Breakfasts range from the light such as Coconut Chia Pudding and French Toast through the highly recommended Blueberry Hotcakes with maple, berries, double cream and seeds to a 3 Egg Fluffy Omelette, Broccoli and Corn Fritters or the house Signature Brass Barrel Benedict (braised pork served with 2 cheese and spinach scone with poached eggs and Sriracha (hot chilli pepper) sauce.
For lunch or dinner diners can choose from Salads and Sandwiches (try the Harissa Chicken Salad with hummus, pickled red cabbage, garlic yoghurt, radish, cos lettuce, baby tomato and cucumber), or Share Plates including Charcuterie, Trio of Sliders and Spiced Chicken Ribs.
On the more substantial side there’s Mains such as the Brass Barrel Parmy, Home Made Sausages with mashed potato, onion jam and red wine jus or Tasmanian Salmon with Cauliflower Puree.
An absolute must try at The Brass Barrel are the burgers, with the beef burger about as close to perfection as you’ll find: served on a black brioche bun with melted American Jack cheese, maple bacon, candied onions and house-made pickles. Combine with a serve of Steakhouse or Bacon and Cheese loaded fries for the ultimate indulgence.
