The Jailhouse Grill is continuing a 140 year tradition by offering fine food and beverage to locals and travellers alike. The building was built 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, the building 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, Tim Piper and all the Staff extend a warm welcome to you and hope that the meal, service and ambience combine for a pleasant dining experience.
Australian Beef is amongst the best in the world. Our farmers are highly skilled at rearing healthy animals using the best breeds and farming techniques including organic and biodynamic farming. With this in mind, it is interesting that many Australians consider Argentinean Beef to be the best.
