Welcome to Depot
The perfect place to drop in and refuel. It's chef Al Brown's place and reflects perfectly his attitude towards food: in season, beautifully cooked, to be enjoyed with friends.
Most of the cooking is over charcoal or hard wood so there's a real succulence to the flavours. Order a selection of small plates and pass them round. Try the freshly shucked oysters. Then there’s the wine list - small, but perfectly formed, with many of Al's top picks.
On behalf of all the team at Depot including head chef Andrew Mackle and manager Lauren Coleman we look forward to seeing you soon.
Coffee served every morning from 7am
