In the 14 months we have been part of Fitzroy Inn Historic Retreat, we have realised our venue works incredibly well as a function venue whether it be for intimate dinners, large functions, weddings or corporate events.

We have decided to focus on our function and catering services.

We love our local and visiting guests so each Saturday we will open for dinner only. Our weekly dinner with fresh menus and surprise offerings will keep Phatt Duck Dining at Fitzroy Inn a destination for elegant dining in the Southern Highlands.

We will still be around for special celebrations such Valentine’s Day, Mothers Day etc.

Don’t forget, you can book online whenever you decided to visit us.

Fantastic celebrating a twins birthday last weekend at The Fitzroy Inn - Historic Retreat. Good party - good fun. We fed and watered the revellers. The Fitzroy Inn has to be one of the best function venues in the district. We do fine dining, we do weddings and formal functions and we do PARTY [...]

Lunch and Dinner à la carte

Tired of the same old uninspired dishes? Tired of Sydney food? Had a bit too much of “modern food” that just seemed odd?

The Phatt Duck team of Stephen & Teena Crooks create food drawn from the rich European tradition of culinary excellence. Among our historic setting, our dishes offer you a dining experience on which you will look back with fond memories. Using the best local produce and great produce from other regions, we seek out tastes and textures to leave you with a feeling of having dined well. There is a difference between having a meal and dining well.

The Southern Highlands is changing.

Nestled just one hour from Sydney and sitting 500m above its seaside counterpart, the region boasts some of the very best wine growing conditions available along the east coast of Australia. With Award winning producers (such as Southern Highlands Wines) joining regional pioneers (Joadja Winery and Eling Forest), the Highlands are beginning to feel a lot more like the Hunter Valley than the sleepy regional centre that had preceded it.

Beyond the quaint, rustic charm and astounding natural beauty, it is the regions wineries, cafés, and restaurants that have been at the centre of a transformation that’s seen the Highlands become a true food and wine lovers destination. Seeking to continue in this vein our menu pairs rustic charcuterie tasting boards and contemporary Australian cuisine with a showcase of some of the regions premier wines.

Situated within the Fitzroy Inn Historic Retreat (c.1836), experience goes beyond just food and wine. The Inn and Restaurant ticks all the boxes, with seasonal picnic/wine baskets to be enjoyed throughout the Inn’s 5 acre gardens and a menu that celebrates some of the regions best boutique produce. The result is a venue that combines everything we’ve come to love about the Southern Highlands: innovative local produce, quality wines, good service and warm cozy rooms laid out across a picturesque, country backdrop. Only one hour from the heart of Sydney by road.
