Trawlers with a view

Trawlers Bar and Kitchen has moved to a spectacular location with breathtaking views next to the Hotel Brunswick. It sure beats the view of Tweed St from their last location, and if you haven’t made it yet to this restaurant and bar, you are missing out.

Trawlers has set up a fantastic restaurant with 5 beers on tap and one of the best crisp ciders you’ll ever enjoy. They have their own beer on tap called Trawlers, it’s a lager which is very popular with the locals, there is also a full cocktail bar that stocks all local and award-winning spirits, and a wine list that includes organic and biodynamic wines.

Trawlers is open for breakfast lunch and dinner, the kitchen is open from 7am to around 9pm. The chefs are passionate about making the entire menu from scratch, and getting the best out of the great local produce for which the Northern Rivers is famous. The menu is full of fantastic produce: local oysters, Burrata, lychee wood-smoked bacon, and boerewors sausages (normally a bit more expensive than a normal sausage because of the quality of the meat). You can even get black pudding at breakfast!

There are also many vegan and vegetarian options, and about 80% of the menu is gluten free – think amazing fresh seafood, mussels, sashimi, calamari, barramundi, whiting and king prawns. 

Trawlers is very proud of its coffee too – they think it’s important to support local roasters, and according to owner Nathan, Rodney from Barefoot Roasters is one of the most passionate they have ever met. Together, they have come up with a roast called Trawler blend 33, a mix of Sumatran, Costa Rican and Columbian beans. Rodney says it’s a versatile blend, roasted medium to dark with flavours of sweet caramel, milk chocolate, hints of hazelnut and subtle hints of grapefruit. It’s created on a beautiful coffee machine called the Black Eagle – Italian style at it best.

With light open spaces, a lot of room to play with and a wonderful view, Trawlers is popular for functions, but owner Nathan says that if you need to make a booking just pop in or send them a Facebook message as Telstra is still in the process of transferring their internet and phone, 3 months late – Telstra at its best!

Judging by its popularity, Trawlers really seems to have hit the nail on the head with this restaurant. If it’s fun you’re after, a fresh breakfast, amazing coffee or their Davidson Plum martini while watching that beautiful sun glisten off the Brunswick River, then this place is for you.
