The Workshop Kitchen

With spacious and seriously slick interiors by acclaimed hospitality designer Paul Kelly Design and a relaxed vibe led by a buzzing open kitchen, this Tamworth institution is ideal for all day dining. The Workshop Kitchen has been proudly serving amazing food and wine since 1986 and is considered the high watermark of regional hospitality.

The Workshop Kitchen is renowned for being the only place in town open all day, serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks until late (including public holidays).

TripAdvisor 2020 Award

The brekkie picks are Kedgeree with local Arc-en-Ciel smoked trout, curry pilaf, soft boiled egg, pickles and herbs, house baked Georgian Cheese Bread or the Truffled Mushroom Omelette with sauteed mushrooms, black truffle oil, confit garlic, smoked Fiore di Latte, Grana Padano & local Reverence Sourdough. Local Antilles coffee beans get the respect they deserve and the tea is loose leaf! What more do you want to kick off the day?

Timeless fare with a modern twist is at the heart of this bright and breezy enduring eatery. There’s everything from artisan bread, seafood and pasta to local Jack’s Creek Beef 6+MS Wagyu rump cap cooked on the wood-fired grill. Delicious sides and salads also grace the seasonal menu. If sweet is your thing, you’ll be torn between the Malted Milk Chocolate Pots De Creme with white chocolate crumb, smoked honey Chantilly cream and the delectable Basque Burnt Cheesecake with Le Chevre cheese, stewed rhubarb and raspberry sorbet.

The restaurant achieved a 2 Glass rating for its extensive wine list in the 2021 Australia’s Wine List of the Year Awards. This accolade recognises world class wine lists and establishments that are committed to presenting the best possible wine selection and service to their customers. The Workshop Kitchen is the first restaurant in the region to ever receive a 2 Glass rating with 287 wines on the menu and 38 wines by the glass.

A mix of flavours and culinary styles give the menu a distinct edge and ticks the boxes of fresh, seasonal and wood grill. Simply add excellent matching wines, laid back professional service, then sit back and enjoy.

There’s also a private dining salon (which can accommodate up to 18 people) that’s removed in splendid isolation from the equally elegant main dining areas. With leather banquettes, locally crafted timber, well spaced tables & white marble kitchen, this sophisticated diner is the perfect spot to enjoy an authentic meal and relaxed dining experiences throughout the day or night.

The Workshop Kitchen is a proud winner of the Tamworth 2021 Quality Business Awards ‘Excellence in Customer Service in Food & Beverage – Large’.
