The Warwick tavern
A tavern with so much more

Established in 2015, The Warwick is a large modern tavern and event venue offering live entertainment, a 360-degree sports bar, huge television screens, dining options, a cosy lounge area surrounding a fireplace and a sun-drenched beer garden with its own bar. Part of a complex that includes the Holiday Inn, it also caters for weddings and conferences.

Walking in from the car park, you're greeted with interesting decor against walls and soft mood lighting coming from the panelled ceiling that changes colour in the evenings. It's a cool vibe where you're welcomed by friendly staff eager to serve.

It was for lunch that hubby and I dined on items from a menu that includes share plates, salads, grill items, ribs, burgers, Italian dishes like risotto and lasagne as well as a range of wood-fired pizzas, pub favourites like schnitzel and beer battered fish with chips, lamb and chicken meals, and pork knuckle (usually limited to German restaurants), to name a few.

My husband chose the Lamb Shank Pie on the Bone ($24) with the lamb braised in red wine, accompanying creamy mash and greens. I loved the way it was presented with the bone sticking out of the pie. I certainly haven't seen it done that way before. The taste didn't disappoint either with the lamb pieces in the pie and the red wine being well balanced in flavour. A huge and filling meal, it got a tick of approval.

It was a hard choice for me with so many delicious sounding dishes and choosing the Crispy Skin Chicken Supreme ($25) was a good choice. Surrounded by a beautiful tarragon cream sauce, roasted butternut pumpkin encrusted in black quinoa, greens and pancetta shards, the chicken was cooked well and the dish hit the spot.

The meals we saw delivered to other patrons were also huge. There's no going home hungry here. I'm looking forward to returning in the future to try their Ploughman's Board and the Beef & 5 Bean Nachos. Both sound good.

If you can fit in dessert, there's several for sweet toothers to choose from. Chocnut Calzone, Banana & Caramel Creme Brulee and Coconut Panna Cotta with strawberries are just some of the delights that await you. I couldn't go past the Sticky Date Sundae ($10) and it arrived nicely presented in a glass with vanilla ice cream, salted caramel sauce and walnut brittle. Divine with a capital D, it was my heaven.

The full menu also includes children's meals and a What's On section with specials, such as 2 for 1 meals on Tuesday nights and Kids Eat Free on Sundays, as well as a Tradies & Ladies Lunch that includes a drink.

Reasonably priced, The Warwick at Warwick Farm is open for all-day dining from 9am on weekends and 10am on weekdays. Beverages are plentiful with the bars serving up pretty much everything you can think of, including creative and colourful cocktail concoctions from a new and inventive bar manager not afraid to push boundaries.

So do yourself a favour and get on down to discover the wonderful Warwick for yourself.
