Set in the original historic Georgian Inn c.1827, the Briars Restaurant and Bar has a true country atmosphere and remains a favourite haunt for locals with its intimate bars and contemporary food.

Dine on the terrace or on a cool Highland evening, embrace the warmth of the Inn’s many open fires with family or friends. The seasonal menu has something for everyone – light meals, seafood and of course our famous steaks, all accompanied by an array of fresh local produce, salads and sides. The Briars Inn is renowned for our “cook your own” steak with a variety of prime aged beef cuts for your choosing.

Our bar serves a broad range of classic and new artisan beers, including our popular English ale, Old Speckled Hen, and Irish dry stout, Guinness. Our wines include local and regional Australian, New Zealand and other international wines.

Alfresco in the summer or open fire in the winter…

Dear Guests,

We are deeply saddened to advise that due to a recent fire, Briars Historic Inn, including the restaurant and bar, will remain closed until further notice. We are doing everything we can to re-open as soon as possible. Briars Country Lodge is unaffected and continues to operate for accommodation, as normal.

We will continue to host all upcoming weddings and conferences out of our Garden Conservatory, as normal. For further information pertaining to weddings and conferences, please contact Rhonda at 4868 1470 or email at rhonda@briars.com.au .

For general enquiries, please contact Simon at 4868 1734 or email at simon@briars.com.au.

We hope you will join us for Melbourne Cup in our Garden Conservatory! We’ve still gotta have fun on Cup Day! To book your Melbourne Cup tickets, please contact Rhonda at 4868 1470.

Once again, we wish to express our deepest gratitude to our understanding guests, our incredibly supportive suppliers and to the local community for your messages of concern and offers of support. We will see you all again very soon. Watch this space!
