The Cottage Restaurant

New-school menu, old-school charm.

The fact that it's called The Cottage Restaurant kind of gives it away; however stepping inside Ipswich's latest is like stepping back in time. And, let's deal with the most important matter first: you mightn't often trek this far west for a meal, but eating at this elegant 1861 abode is worth the drive.

Sitting on the verandah of the national trust dwelling is highly recommended, so there's your first must-visit reason taken care of (who doesn't like enjoying a fancy meal outdoors?). The second reason to put The Cottage on your local road trip itinerary extends beyond the cute old-school decor to the food and drinks.

This really is fine dining, new-school, modern Australian style. And, The Cottage really does boast a menu full of items that'll make you exclaim "I must eat that!". Try a mushroom cappuccino with truffle oil, 48-hour pork belly and lavender creme brulee, for example. Plus, the lineup is seasonal, so more delightful concoctions await four times year.
