Eltons Eating + Drinking thrives in a heritage building built in 1896 which boasts unique historical character unachievable by modern buildings today. Originally the two story building was home to family owned ‘Eltons Pharmacy’ until 1992 when it was converted into one of Mudgee’s many iconic cafes. For over 12 years, Elton’s Brasserie was a favourite destination for locals & tourists alike until it was closed in early 2014.
In August of 2014, Brent Rowlands & Dani Eldred returned to their home town to put their own stamp on ‘Eltons’. With over 20 years combined experience in the hospitality industry, they set out to create a vibrant destination venue, with a difference.
Following 10 weeks of hard work & extensive renovations, design & styling, Eltons Eating + Drinking opened in November 2014 to an awaiting local crowd. Eltons instantly created a new vibe within the thriving hospitality scene of Mudgee & has been extremely well welcomed by locals & vistors to the region.
The ‘Eating + Drinking’ brand was created through not wanting to label the venue in any way, dictating who or what they are. Eltons is a small bar for a cool drink, while it is a restaurant with full table service & an extensive menu. Eltons is a morning coffee hang with a Market St view, while it’s also a Sunday afternoon chill in a beautiful courtyard.
Eltons is whatever you want it to be, when you want it.
Head Chef Blake Joseph & his team strive to offer their guests an effortlessly interesting, casual & fresh menu using regional produce where possible.
The ever changing menu is designed around an emphasis on sharing but also offers a few individual dishes, allowing the guest to choose their style of dining. With many Share + Start options & freshly prepared pizzas, ordering a lot of small dishes to share over the course of a few hours is quickly becoming the Elton’s dining trend.
Offerings in beverages include 6 taps pouring craft beer sourced from small brewers Australia wide which are continuously changing as each keg pours its last drop. Fine wines from our glorious Mudgee Region, along with Australia wide options sit prominently behind the bar along with a wide selection of spirits & liquors.
The ever evolving Eltons simply offers exactly what they promise – Eating + Drinking.
