Eat & Drink


OK so Knopwoods Retreat is obviously a mighty fine spot for a cleansing beverage, but it is also quite the place to satisfy all you hungry beasts out there.  Simple pub grub it is NOT (if you’re after nuggets and chips you’d better look elsewhere).  Our ever-changing lunch menu on weekdays from midday-2pm, is filled with stacks of different options made with locally sourced fresh Tasmanian produce.  And because we’re always in a generous mood (you only need to look at the servings the chef dishes up to know this) we also offer a brunch menu on Saturdays between 10 - 3pm, which is perfect for helping to cure that pesky hangover, or just watching the crowds of the famous Salamanca Market drift by.  Click below to see our menu.  We promise that on it you will always find a range of affordable options, whether you’re a devout meat eater, or a devout vegetarian.

What’s on today?

Rest assured there will no re-enactment of the Coyote Ugly bar dancing scene happening today at Knopwoods Retreat…or any day for that matter, and if you even remember that movie then you should be ashamed of yourself.  Other than bar dancing we offer many other things – like Gluhwein in Winter, and the Summer Spanish sensation Sangria (try saying that 3 times after a couple of times).

On Tap

We serve 14 draught beers on tap, yes you heard right that’s 14, and these change seasonally too whether it be an awesome international beer or a boutique Tasmanian offering (us Tasmanians know how to make damn good beer).  We also pour the locally produced and highly popular Gillespie’s Alcoholic Ginger beer, good on its own or also mighty fine mixed with one of our vodkas or rums, just sayin’.  A proving to not just be the ladies drink these days we’ve got cider on tap too, people can’t seem to get enough of the stuff. If you can’t find something you like on tap at “Knoppies”, we’ll just call you bloody fussy.

Packaged Beer & Cider

Beer, beer and more beer, oh and cider too……here at “Knoppies” we stock a large range of local and imported beers and ciders as well as the odd surprise.  If you’re an adventurous type always ask for something a little different…and hey if you can’t get to Freising in Germany, or Sinaloa in Mexico the next best thing is to sample their local drop right here with us!
