Eat & Drink at Newstead’s Bar & Grill

Lunch & Dinner  |  11am – Close

Located in the Gasworks precinct, our bar and grill serves lunch and dinner seven days a week. But if you’re up the creek and in need of a fast fix, there is also a take-away food offering and express coffee window to duck in and out.

Join us for all-star American fare, served with a dash of Southern hospitality, a pinch of soul and a generous pour of casual comfort.  To complement the delicious dishes coming out of the kitchen, the bar offers 24 craft and local beers on tap, as well as three wine taps and an extensive bottled wine selection. Diners are invited to spread their wings, quack open a bevvy, overlook the greenery of the Gasometer and indulge in everything The Duck has to offer.

Bookings & Reservations

Reservations are available at our Newstead restaurant. Our secluded private dining space is available for up to 70 guests and is the perfect spot for you to ruffle your feathers. Otherwise if you’re more inclined to be out amongst the action, keep it low-key and casual with a round at the bar and a game of pool in our alfresco area. We also have communal dining tables that lend themselves perfectly to long lunches and knock off drinks. The Defiant Duck can be hired for full venue functions for up to 500 people.

Are you an early bird on the fly? Then The Defiant Duck has you covered! Our takeaway window is now open weekdays from 6am – 3pm and fully loaded with all the caffeine and breakfast bites you need to wing into your day.  Or opt to dine in.

The best part? With two delicious signature house blends to choose from, there’s something for every java lover at the Defiant Duck.
