Rose Diner and Bar

Often you visit restaurants where there has been much put into the design, but somewhere on the way to the kitchen the message about presentation gets lost and you end up served a dish that looks like it has come from a school canteen. Luckily at Rose Diner attention is given to every last detail, right down to the plate your meal is served on.

The unassuming old style pub front opens into a revamped green and cream interior. With a grand, sweeping bar and a mix of high and low tables scattered across the large space, there is something relaxing but stylish about Rose’s atmosphere.

Co-owned by brothers Steed Sheriff and Blake Oakley along with business partner Ash Cranston, Rose Diner offers pub cuisine with a British twist.

Every dish we tried, from the creamy Potato, Leek, Crouton and Gruyere soup ($7) served in an enameled camping cup, to the delicate plating of the Pan Roasted Hervey Bay Scallops with pickled green chilli ($18), was executed with care and thought.

The desserts were just as delicious. With a hint of citrus, the Valrhona Chocolate Doughnuts ($12) were mouth-watering sugary balls that melted in your mouth, while the Baked Corrella Pear in Lillet with Yoghurt Ice-cream ($12) was a beautiful mix of spice, sweet and pear. The fantastic range of food is complimented with plenty of local wines and craft beers (it is an old pub, after all).

And if you can’t make it after hours the Little Rose Cafe next door does jaffles and shakes during the day.
