On Sunday 14th May, guests were treated to a morning of delightful breakfast delicacies and indulgent treats, as part of our Mother’s Day Breakfast.

The beautiful function room was styled with fresh white linen, while the table tops were garnished by a stunning floral arrangement from Roses Only

Just like the floral displays, the food was fresh and most importantly, flavoursome. Spoilt for choice, guests helped themselves to sweet and savoury options, from freshly cooked Belgian Waffles and home-made Granola, to gourmet Chipolatas and Potato Rosti. Just a few little highlights from the menu!

Of course, one of the most exciting treats from the day were the gift bags! These glossy white bags were filled with Parisian inspired sweets from New Farm Confectionery, a hint of sparkle from Adorne, fabulous pamper goods from Stefan and a floral surprise from Roses Only.

The day finished on a extra sweet note for a special guest who walked away with our lucky door prize – the ultimate $250 hair and beauty hamper from Stefan.

We welcomed Spring with the Regatta’s first ever long-table laneway event, ‘One Spring Evening.’ The ticketed event included three ‘feast’ style courses set-up on two long tables in what is normally the Regatta’s loading zone. Included in the ticket was a stunning beverage package featuring Moet Chandon, Ferrari, Asahi and Penfolds wines. It was a pleasure to watch guests embrace the concept of communal dining and celebrate food, wine, music and warmer nights together. Thank you to everyone who joined us and we look forward to next year’s event!

The restaurant was assessed according to key criteria such as presentation, ambience, service, popularity, value for money, and of course, the menu, featuring its signature wet and dry aged steaks.

Over the last year, the Regatta Boatshed has played host to a number of large events, including the Grand Ladies’ Luncheon for International Women’s Day, the RNA Paddock to Palate campaign, Origin Legends Lunch, and the Mandate Breakfast for men’s health.

Regatta General Manager Rob Brady said the Boatshed had established itself as a stylish, full service pub restaurant with stand-out value and a classic approach to food and beverage service.

“Our team works closely with suppliers to ensure a solid relationships. We seek the very best produce from them, focusing on what is fresh, seasonal, and as much as possible, local,” Mr Brady said.

The Boatshed specialty is, of course, a fantastic steak menu which is balanced by a choice of seafood, chicken, pasta and salad dishes.

Boatshed Executive Chef Daniel Fleming is backed by a highly experienced team on show in our unique exhibition kitchen.

Brisbane’s iconic Regatta Hotel will be one of the first hotels in Queensland to adopt Australia’s biggest innovation in draught beer (since the 50 litre internal spear din keg!!) with the installation of its brewery fresh tank beer technology.

Two refrigerated copper tanks to be installed above the hotel’s main bar will make it one of the state’s first to receive fresh and unpasteurised Carlton Draught beer direct by tanker from cub’s Abbotsford brewery in Melbourne.

The beer is pumped direct from the brewery’s bright beer tank into special chilled delivery tankers for delivery to the Regatta and poured for the enjoyment of beer lovers in its freshest form over the next 14 days.

Regatta Hotel General Manager, Robert Brady, said that ”The Regatta’s positioning as a classic reinterpretation of its original 1874 grandeur as a place where people from all walks of life can eat, drink and relax, made it the logical choice for CUB to champion its brewery fresh tank beer.”

“We are going to extraordinary lengths to serve the freshest draught beer,” said Mr. Brady.

“Freshness and chilled delivery will ensure it tastes just like it does at the brewery. It has been described as having a crisp, lively taste profile and a smooth finish,” said Liam Walsh of CUB.

Unlike other beers, Carlton Draught’s unpasteurized beer is not heated to 70 degrees during the brewing process.

“It is Carlton Draught, served as its original nineteenth century brew master intended, unpasteurized and direct from the brewery,” explained Mr. Walsh.

Carlton Draught’s brewery fresh tank beer will be available at the Regatta Hotel from Friday 30th October.

BenJam provided the perfect live music in the Courtyard following Two Up and the merriment continued well into the evening.
