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.

Our Glenfiddich terrarium experience is a journey of discovery. Showcasing the worlds most awarded single malt whisky, expertly paired alongside local handmade truffles.

Whether you are a seasoned whisky connoisseur or just starting out on your adventure, this unique serve will move your senses in more ways than one.

Here at Platform 818, we have brought together two of our favourite things – whisky & chocolate. Let’s be honest, it’s match made in heaven. The sweet fruity characteristic of the whisky dances around the palate with the bittersweet bass notes of the truffle bringing it all together. In their purest form they are both made of a very simple set of ingredients, however It is the tireless skill of the craftsmen/woman that make really turn ordinary into the extraordinary.

We’ve combined Australian and Scottish flora and fauna, taking you on an adventure from the desert shores of our homeland to the Lochs and Glens of the Scottish Highlands.

Come with us as we take you around the world on a journey you will never forget.
