Centrally located on the Sunshine Coast, we are fortunate to be surrounded by amazing local produce and suppliers. As an independent family owned business, we endeavour to use the best produce and suppliers available locally.
We purchase our fruit and vegetables from Suncoast Fresh, who use a network of local farmers to grow their produce. All of our meat is sourced from Global Viande who are also based on the Sunshine Coast and our dry goods are purchased from MOCO, a second generation family owned
and operated business.
We are always looking for new and upcoming suppliers and we have developed a great connection over the last 12 months with another local family business called The Green Shed. Proprietors Sharon and Marcus Koski have expanded their range of baby herbs and shoots to start to supply our
hotels with organically grown salad leaves and vegetables, picked to order and delivered the same morning to the Tavern.
Mooloolah River Fisheries deliver local oysters and Mooloolaba prawns along with a new addition to this menu, Huon Atlantic salmon which is farmed in the pristine waters off a remote hideaway bay in southern Tasmania. This is a high quality sustainably grown fish which is renowned for its clean flavour and delicate texture.
To enhance your dining experience with us, we have added a quick food match guide to this season’s wine list to help you select the wine that best pairs with your choice of meal. As they say, the best wine is the one that you like but there is no doubt that by matching a nice wine to your selected dish
you can enhance your dining experience and get the most out of both the dish and the wine.
We hope you enjoy our Autumn menu.

As a locally owned and operated independent hotel group, we strive to support and encourage local independent businesses like ourselves wherever possible. With this season’s menu we acknowledge that the nights are getting a little longer and the kitchen team has identified some new and exciting products and techniques to share.
We have sourced the most succulent Mooloolaba prawns delivered direct to the Hotel from the trawler. Their beautiful sweet flavour is evident when added to Coral Coast barramundi, wrapped in paper and cooked in its own juices 'en papillote'.
Our grain fed beef cheeks are sourced from the Darling Downs, braised gently until tender enough to eat with a spoon. Our salads are made using the finest local product with herbs, micro leaves and shoots from The Green Shed in Palmwoods, fetta from Kenilworth and our Tasmanian Atlantic salmon is smoked in house. Local company, Suncoast Fresh supply us daily with the finest fruit and vegetables collected from a network of farms in South-east Queensland.
Great care and attention has been placed on sourcing the highest quality of beef available for your enjoyment. We have selected trusted high end Australian brands with a focus on their flavour, tenderness and texture with a mixture of grass and grain fed product to suit all preferences.
Our premium selection showcases Queensland's favourite steak, the Rib, from two world class beef producers. Exclusive in this region to the Sunshine Coast Hotel group, the Thousand Guineas rib fillet is a 180 day grain fed Australian shorthorn beef which is renowned for its open texture and buttery flavour.
The Cape Grim rib eye on the bone is a traditional British breed sourced from northern Tasmania. This tender cut is cooked on the bone with a consistent marble of fat and has a rich full flavour reflecting the 100% grass diet.
Our wine list continues to evolve and this season, we have introduced a delicious tempranillo called Calo from Rioja, Spain. Calo is the gypsy language of northern Spain and this wine is very expressive with full bodied blackcurrant and cherry cola flavours balanced by a mild, smooth finish. It’s yummy and pairs really well with mild spice dishes and also our pizza.
We have also added a new moscato to this season’s wine list. This wine is produced by Holm Oak Vineyards, a five star rated winery in Northern Tasmania which was established in 1983. Holm Oak is one of the few smaller family owned wineries who grow, make and bottle their own wines on site. The TBR Duffy Moscato is a refreshing wine with more complexity than you would expect from this varietal. The wine also has added spice flavours as a result of the extra skin contact.
We are very pleased to be the first venue in Queensland to feature the release of the Leeuwin Estate Prelude Cabernet Sauvignon from Margaret River. Leeuwin Estate is the benchmark of Margaret River chardonnay and cabernet and we now have both of the Prelude Vineyards varietals on our list.
This latest red is a cracking example of Margaret River cabernet and this premier 2013 vintage has all the Leeuwin trademarks of elegance and class. Enjoy a bottle with one of our premium selection steaks – you won’t be disappointed!

Yesterday, Parklands Tavern signed a further two year major sponsorship agreement with the Sunshine Coast Turf Club.
The locally owned and operated Parklands Tavern has supported the Turf Club since opening in early 2015.

Thanks to everyone who purchased a Schooner of Stone & Wood Pacific Ale over the Easter Long Weekend. You helped us raise a total of $2,504.70 which was donated to the Scenic Rim Council Flood Relief.
Our thanks to Stone & Wood Brewing for donating the three kegs.
As a locally owned independent hotel group, the team at Sunshine Coast Hotels pride ourselves on buying the freshest produce available from local producers and suppliers.
With Autumn now upon us, our seasonal menu focus moves more towards hearty dishes and comfort food. Rich deep flavours of roasted meats, root vegetables, thyme and garlic.
Great care and effort has been placed on selecting the best quality cuts of meat for the Sunshine Coast Hotels group. Trusted brands sourced from around Australia have been selected for their flavour, tenderness and texture. All beef
products are aged for a minimum of 40 days, hormone and antibiotic free and importantly, raised to the highest animal welfare standards with full traceability.
The Green Shed is a small farm located in Palmwoods, where Sharon Koski and her family grow the most brilliant micro herbs, miniature leaves, edible flowers, shoots and baby vegetables.
Reuben Jennings and his family proudly operate Kingfisher Meadow Farm, also based in Palmwoods. This season, Reuben supplies us with 5 different lettuce varieties for our salad mix which is picked before sunrise and delivered the very same day.
Both farms use only organic fertiliser and no herbicides or pesticides.
This season’s wine list has been expanded to include some more choice with the growth in popularity of Pinot Gris/Grigio, Rosé and Shiraz varietals. We introduce you to a cracking Rosé from Provence, France, called Rameau d’Or as well as a New Zealand Pinot Gris and a preservative free Shiraz from McLaren Vale.
We offer seating for 370 guests, including up to 70 in our private dining room, The Birdcage.
Please contact us on 5413 2200 to make a booking.
