Menu

Experience a modern take on classic Australian dishes made with locally sourced produce that once would have travelled from railway towns along the NSW goods line.

Enjoy these dishes with our all Australian wine list showcasing what Australia has to offer across many great regions, with some hero varietals as well as upcoming Australian wine makers, who are pushing the boundaries and exploring new styles of wine crafting changing the Australian wine landscape.

Our signature, the highball cocktail, is inspired by the practice of serving beverages in tall glasses on steam trains. It is carefully crafted by our resident mixologist with bespoke PS40 soda and flavour-infused beautifully decorated blocks of ice.

Hop on board as we take a palatable excursion through time.
