The second lunch in Restaurant Ballarat’s sold-out Sunday Roast series took place at The Pub with Two Names, a 1887 bluestone building recently bought and redecorated by artists David and Yuge Bromley.
David Moyle – chef and co-owner of Hobart’s acclaimed Franklin – prepared a three-course meal from locally sourced ingredients.
Gin by Kilderkin Distillery and beer by Athletic Club Brewery were offered on arrival, followed by a chicken and mushroom broth with calamari dumpling as an entrée. The main was wood-roasted mutton with braised wild greens, smoked potato, house-made mustard and pickled daikon. For dessert there was suet and lemon pie matched with a Pyrenees nebbiolo rosé by LATTAvino – a local winery near Ballarat.
Singer and guitarist Yuko Nishiyama performed throughout the afternoon and guests were given a first look at The Bromley Gallery next door.
The highly anticipated restaurant and accommodation at The Pub with Two Names (previously the Peter Lalor Hotel) will open later in the year. Be the first to know the launch date of The Pub With Two Names by following Bromley & Co on Instagram.
