THE JAILHOUSE GRILL
The Jailhouse Grill is continuing a 140 year tradition by offering
fine food and beverage to
locals and travelers alike. The building was constructed in the mid 1800’s
using handmade convict bricks from the local “brickfields” some 500
meters away and is typical of a Victorian Georgian Inn or Public
House of the era. Registered with the Tasmanian Heritage Council,
is regarded as important to the community’s sense of place.
Originally named the Prince of Wales, Launcestonians will be more
familiar with the names, The Richmond Hotel, Barnaby’s Hotel and the
Ball and Chain Grill. In continuing the tradition of the previous
Inn Keepers and Publicans, Kerry Luck and Stuart Van Zetten and all
the Staff extend a warm
welcome to you and hope that the meal, service and ambience combine
for a pleasant dining experience.
WHAT MAKES A GREAT STEAK
*The choice of meat - typically grass-fed yearling, of the Angus or
Hereford breed. With our meat we also specify the colour, size, fat
percentage, marbling and muscle score. *The cooking medium - we use a
genuine, open-grill, charcoal fire to cook our steaks!! The red hot
embers that are created from burning the Mallee tree creates an
intense, even, heat that seals the steaks quickly to lock-in the
juices and flavours.
*The expertise - “cooks” Charlie, Josh & Chris
have cooked over 400,000 steaks between them and guarantee to cook
the steak exactly how you like it.
