The Residency: Collaborative Kitchen

Collaboration is the driving force behind the food we serve.

Our region has some of the best growers and farmers in the country, and we want to share their passion and produce with you.

Conveniently situated in the heart of the city, our mouth-watering menu uses ingredients mostly sourced from within 100 kilometres of Newcastle.

Not only that, we’re teaming up with the Hunter’s best professional and aspiring chefs to showcase their delicious dishes, new creations and flavoursome favourites.

Local ingredients, local growers, local chefs.


By day…

Enjoy our all-day breakfast and lunch menu, where your taste buds will be in heaven as you feast on the best seasonal produce the Hunter has to offer.

From the coffee beans, to the bread and the milk, our dishes let the goodness of the ingredients shine in every mouthful.

We’ve got hot toasties, seasonal salads and sublime sandwiches. Grab a coffee roasted beautifully by Glitch coffee roaster or one of our daily specials to go, or settle in longer for a mouth-watering meal.

Check out our current day menu and make sure to ask for specials.

By night…

The Residency becomes a hive of creation and cuisine.

Periodically, a new resident chef will be in charge of the kitchen, bringing their own style and menu to your plates. From Turkish to Regional Chinese, homely Italian to American style BBQ.

This is where the Hunter’s most loved and respected chefs come to try new ideas. We also have visiting cooks share their menu. You might find a food truck vendor enjoying the use of a full kitchen, or even those who are thinking about opening their own eatery.

Ever-changing, exciting and unexpected. Discover new flavours, new cuisines, new favourites.

Keep an eye on our menu page and on social media to see who will be visiting next.

We are fully licensed using ONLY LOCALLY SOURCED wine and beer but we also offer
BUO wine only on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
