Pub changing with the times
New menu focused on great food, quick service
IN AN ever-changing world, pubs need to have their finger on the pulse of the community.
Management at the Club Hotel in Chinchilla has unveiled their new lunch and dinner menu, with a wide range of options at good prices.
The Club Hotel is wanting to cater to all customers, and head chef Daniele Calvisi said his kitchen was excited about what they are offering to the public.
He said the pub had placed a strong focus on their new lunch options.
“The menu as it is now has focused on our lunch time to be able to pump out quick meals for those who are on lunch breaks,” Mr Calvisi said.
“Being able for people to come in without a booking and be able to be out in a reasonable time.
“You can now pre-order up to 11.30am, through Facebook, email or fax, and then we are able to have them ready to go.”
A new lunch-time loyalty card has also been launched at the Club Hotel, enticing patrons to try the new menu.
“The lunch loyalty cards are for those who come in for lunch from 11.30am to 2.30pm,” Mr Calvisi said.
“If they order anything off the menu they receive a stamp on their card.
“Once they have filled up the 10 stamp spots on the card, they receive a free meal up to $30.”
He said the pub has placed a strong emphasis on using local suppliers for their products.
The dinner time menu has also had a revamp, with a wider range of options to suit every taste-bud.
Mr Calvisi said those with special requirements should have no fear about enjoying their meal at the Club Hotel.
“We’ve taken the menu and designed it to have options for vegetarians, gluten free, vegans and if we need to coeliacs,” he said.
“We really try to accommodate for everyone who comes through the door for a meal.”
The new menu will be put through its paces next month, when the pub’s annual wine evening is held.
Mr Calvisi said the wine night on Thursday, August 23, would be the perfect event to see what the Club Hotel had to offer.
“It is a three-course evening with canapes, mains and desserts,” he said.
“It is definitely something to come down and enjoy, all of the wines are matched to our foods.”
