Delve into the fascinating history of Penrith and you’ll soon come across an amiable chap called Mr Watkin Tench. His sense of adventure and industrious spirit have inspired Penrith’s newest bar, the aptly named Mr Watkin's. Not only is the bar named after him, the venue has been designed to reflect Watkin Tench's personal taste and style.
Located on High Street, Mr Watkin’s is a café by day, speakeasy style bar & restaurant at night, offering quality food & drinks in a unique turn of the century setting.
The Mr Watkin's crew gained their work experience at some top notch restaurants including The Ledbury in London, Merivale's Uccello and Restaurant Hubert in the CBD. You can expect an assortment of small plates, snacks and hot dogs inspired by five different cuisines including South African, Spanish, Dutch, American and Australian.
The menu will change regularly with the seasons but you can be assured of one thing; an eclectic and exciting selection of drinks will remain all year round. Think craft beers, classic cocktails and an extensive wine list.
Gluten free, vegetarian and vegan meals available.
