Inspired by the rich history of Sydney, The Governor’s Table at the Museum of Sydney is well-worth the visit, even for Sydney locals. The small yet intimate restaurant (soon to be expanding) perfectly captures the feel of early Australia, especially with the use of basic décor such as stone, timber and steel to mirror what once was.
Built in 1788, the space originally housed Governor Phillip for a short time so when dining at The Governor’s table you’re really living in history.
Whilst The Governor’s Table has an expansive menu of modern Australian food, one menu option you can’t go past is their Colonial High Tea. The food on offer is truly delectable and with a glass of champagne and your choice of tea and coffee included, you’ll definitely leave The Governor’s Table feeling just a little bit regal.
Some of the delicacies you can expect include Cauliflower and Truffle Tart, Smoked Salmon on Brioches, Chicken and Tarragon Pillows, Apple Snow, Macarons, Strawberry Éclairs, Pineapple and Orange Curd Custard and more. Mouth drooling yet? It should be.
Once you’re done, why not head a few steps over to the Museum of Sydney to soak up some Australian history? It’s a great opportunity for a history refresher because let’s be honest, no one really remembers what they learnt in primary school.
