At Gunners Barracks we offer an experience of great food and friendly service which are rivalled only by the superb views our heritage location commands of Sydney Harbour.

Whether seated within the recently refreshed venue or in the comfort of the enclosed harbour terrace, diners will enjoy the balanced flavours of head chef Nathan Darling’s modern Australian cuisine. Working with only the finest produce, Nathan’s menu caters to leisurely and corporate lunches as well as private celebrations such as baby showers and kitchen teas.

Along with lunch we serve morning and afternoon tea, a delicate affair for which we have become renowned. Guests enjoy Asia Pacific’s largest selection of Ronnefeldt teas and are presented with delectable cakes, scones, sandwiches and savoury pastries that are created by our own kitchen and served on tiered silver stands. Amidst the soft ‘clink?of English china, our tea service is an opportunity for guests to delight in tradition in a luxurious setting.
