PPH frontage

What’s on the menu?

The menu is best described as modern smokehouse. Meats are smoked daily with native woods for up to eight hours and include sticky beef spare ribs, Carolina pulled pork shoulder, Kansas-style buttermilk chicken and grain-fed Riverina Angus beef brisket.

PPH snacks

If it’s snacks you’re after, tuck into the burnt ends with Wasabi BBQ sauce, Southern crispy calamari, chipotle mayo and green onion or smashed avocado, jalopeño, witlof, cashew and pickled cucumber. If you’re a grill lover, order the 450 gram T-bone with garlic soy and Sriracha, 250 gram Angus flank steak with shiso butter or the pork cutlet with ginger, scallions, brown sugar and sake.

Prefer something lighter? Start with the grilled watermelon, tiger prawns, pickled daikon and Ponzu butter followed by smoked trout salad with kipfler potato, watercress and cumin mustard dressing. The menu is available daily for lunch from midday and dinner from 5:30pm. The dining area accepts reservations for dinner.

Care for a drink?

Rollo Anderson, formerly of The Rook, is the man behind the bar. His drinks list features an impressive boutique beer offering with 16 beers on tap and 40 bottled. If cocktails are more your style, sip on something tasty while you learn a little Potts Point history.

The cocktails are named after infamous Potts Point identities and include twists on classics such as the Carlotta Collins (with Tanqueray, Aperol, ruby grapefruit and salted rim), Tilly’s Razorblade (with Havana Club 3, lime, honey and cayenne pepper) and the Rum Rafferty (with Bundaberg Small Batch, orange, clove and dark chocolate).
