There have been some changes at the Bruns Pub (aka Hotel Brunswick). The new head chef is Kat (aka Katerina) Williams, after whom Fat Belly Kat was originally named, before it became Fat Belly Kaf, and now Trawlers, in the restaurant space at the front of Sails Motel.

The focus of the new menu is Australian and clean produce with as much as possible, given the high volume, made onsite. Pub standards (aka Chicken Schnitzel and Parmigiana) still feature. Other dishes move the food more towards the Gastronomic Pub concept. Nolan’s Private Selection 400g Rib Eye on the bone is tender stretched meat served with potato puree, char-grilled corn, steamed broccolini and smoked chipotle or mustard butter on a big rustic plate.

Kat’s Greek heritage shines through in several dishes including the Ouzo-Cured Salmon starter, served with crème fraiche, rocket, asparagus and rye croutons.

Extensive renovations have led to the opening of a river bar, located along the Torakina-end of the pub where the height allows views over Simpsons Creek. The inside area has also had an overhaul, with the pokies room relocated and redone. A ‘pop-up’ bar will be another versatile space.

A new playground area complete with play equipment and hand-painted murals, and a permanently sited food truck (aka The Tucker Truck) has been built, allowing additional kitchen space.

Hotel Brunswick, Mullumbimbi Street, Brunswick Heads.
