Peacock and Jones

Peacock and Jones is situated in the oldest surviving sandstone warehouse on Hunter Street, dating back to 1823, where the original walls, timber beams, pillars and trusses tell the story of the building’s former life. Head Chef Jeff Workman and Front of House Manager Emma Devlin head up a small but brilliant team working on the floor and in the dramatic open kitchen.

The menu has been designed around sharing, with plenty of snacks and small plates for grazing with friends or family. With style inflections of “French bistro”, Jeff takes much of his inspiration and technique from the traditional French style of cooking where produce is the hero, although the cuisine might more accurately be described as contemporary Australian… or even Tasmanian.

This charming little eatery was amongst the very first customers of Hobart City Farm and they continue to partner closely featuring a range of seasonal fruit and vegetables in their ever-changing menu. The partnerships spread further throughout the region, with local suppliers growing and supplying a treasure trove of dairy, honey, figs, berries and other treats that inform the popular and vibrant Peacock and Jones dessert menu.

With a commitment to supporting the local industry, Jeff is adamant that the fresher the produce, the less it needs to be “tricked up”. Not a hard ask as some of the best produce in the world is coming out of this little island state!
