Kersbrook Tavern – New Management, New Faces and NEW CHEF

Story ThumbnailThe village of Kersbrook is located in the Northern Adelaide Hills in the Apple, Pear and Cherry growing district between Williamstown and Gumeracha – an absolutely stunning drive at any time of the year.

Paul and Robyn Griffin would like to announce the arrival of their new Chef, Scott Mac-Diarmid.

Scott has worked previously as head chef at the Bath Hotel, Norwood and Brompton Park Hotel.

In 2005 while working at the Grange Hotel, the dining room won ‘Best Non-Metro Bistro’ and ‘Best Overall Bistro’ in Australia awarded by the Australian Hotels Association.

“Scott will bring a wealth of experience with him and a host of special dishes, ones that have earned the loyalty of diners from all over suburban Adelaide”, Paul said.

“The new menu released only last week boasts a fresh range of dishes and a number of fortnightly specials”, Paul said.

My wife and I tried out the new menu last week, and we can recommend the meals to the finest of conisseurs.

The venue is only slightly different but the food and service is much different.

I started off with ‘soup of the day’ which turned out to be a very different Roasted Pumpkin soup, very delicious.

For mains Diane,my wife, enjoyed the sumptuous Chicken Breast stuffed with garlic butter, wrapped in double smoked bacon and crumbed, served with roast potatoes and garlic sauce. Yum Yum!

I tried out Scott’s “Surf and Turf”, a superb scotch fillet, garlic prawns, served on a sweet potato mash.

For dessert we had the steamed “Sticky Date Pudding” with a warm butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice-cream.

In all I was pleasantly surprised at the service, hospitality and the quality of the meals, exquisite was my overall description of the tasty meals.

I can recommend a revisit if you haven’t been for a while or if you are looking for somewhere different to dine out.

Congratulations, Robyn, Paul and Scott.
