until we can open again!!
Sadly, our beautiful restaurant is damaged and unsafe.

The large hotel above our dining room had a major plumbing issue 
which has caved in ceilings and flooded our walls.

The mess is significant and the repairs will take a couple of weeks.

We will announce our re-opening date and all updates here as soon as we can. 

Our online store PURE SOUTH FOOD Co. 
is also CLOSED as the kitchens are dismantled. 

We apologise to all of our regulars who visit us in this busy time of the year, 
and we hope to serve the beautiful Tassie produce to you again very soon. 

We hope you all have a wonderful 2022.
