Old school sophistication and charm finds a home in Brisbane at the New Inchcolm Hotel in Spring Hill. Within this heritage listed boutique hotel, you’ll find Thomson’s Reserve dishing up breakfast, lunch and dinner for hotel guests and visitors alike, with a flair for progressive, modern Australian cuisine.
Thomson’s Reserve gained its name from Dr John Thomson, a distinguished doctor, scientist and phycologist who chose the site where the New Inchcolm now stands for his personal residence, named after his Scottish home on Inchcolm Island. As such, over time the beautiful building has played host to visitors from far and wide, providing a decadent escape in the heart of Brisbane’s inner city.
Vintage charm is never far from Thomson’s reserve, with its art-deco fit out displaying arched windows and hanging golden lights that set off the sleek black finishes. Giving off very much a ‘high society’ feel, there’s no wonder that the gourmet cuisine is crafted to match its outstanding surroundings. The small space is equipped to seat 50 diners, so each experience is intimate and every query answered with the utmost concern.
Head Chef, Anthony Hales carefully curated menu is centred around fresh, organic produce. Fresh fruity flavours are strongly represented in the breakfast menu with options like the sweet Peach Tart with cottage cheese, poached peaches and almond frangipane. Lunch options consist of fresh Queensland seafood like the spanner crab, served with crème fraiche, sorrel, grapefruit and walnut, combining the flavours of sweet tropical fruits with nutty textures and the saltiness of the crab. Dinner follows a similar suit, with a range of delicious seafood as well as local meats. Opt for the highly marbled beef cooked to perfection and served with mushrooms, pumpkin, miyeok and marigold.
Alternatively, submit yourself to Thomson Reserve’s tasting menu, combining menu highlights with wine pairings. Take the chicken with hazelnut, chanterelle and lovage best enjoyed alongside a glass of South Australian Chardonnay from Adelaide Hills, or the prawn, honeydew and Lebanese cress with Italian Prosecco. As well as these drops, the extensive wine list features top tier titles from across Australia and beyond.
Whether you’re a guest at the hotel or treating yourself to a night of fine dining in Brisbane, a little bit of luxury lies within Thomson’s Reserve at the Inchcolm Hotel that beckons you in. In the heart of Brisbane’s bustling city, take a moment to relax at this old-school institution from a day gone by.
