Clifford House, 120 Russell St,Toowoomba QLD
Housed in one of Toowoomba’s most historic buildings, Gip’s Restaurant is the perfect venue for smart casual dining. Encompassed amongst old English oak and jacaranda trees, the tranquil garden setting complements an open and contemporary interior, creating the perfect location for all types of occasions. Attune to its sophisticated surrounds, Gip’s Restaurant menu puts a refined spin on casual modern Australian cuisine, offering café style lunches, a la carte dinners and a comprehensive wine and cocktail selection. Dishes may include tapas plates of spicy, soft shell crab pakoras with mint and cumin yoghurt, before Moreton Bay bug ravioli with Tiger prawns, asparagus, prosciutto and spicy Vermouth cream sauce. Be sure to save room for desserts like a mango and macadamia sorbet cake.
A short overview of Gip's Restaurant!Clifford House was originally built as a gentlemens club but never completed until James Taylor moved there with his family.Jon and Julanne McCorley opened Gip's Restaurant in 1999. Gip was the name of James Taylor's little Jack Russell dog who was buried in the grounds in 1894. His headstone is still there for all to see, and we felt by naming the restaurant after him there would always be a connection.Originally the restaurant was the old Billiard room with an alfresco area at the front. We have since extended the alfresco area and the function room is now in the original old Clifford House.The gardens lend themselves to a peaceful dining experience and all types of functions and weddings are held on the premises.Marquee weddings in the garden are also a popular choice and Gip's is the perfect venue.Our menu could be mostly described as Modern Australian but our chefs regularly venture outside this 'tag' and produce some wonderful dishes.Our lunch and dinner menus are totally different, with lunch being a much more casual affair - the menu extending to wraps, pork sliders and burgers as well as main courses. Each day we have a lunch special and a glass of wine for only $26.90. Our a la carte menu in the evening leans more towards fine dining but we always have a dinner special with a glass of wine for $29.90.Gip's has a small breakfast menu and is extremely popular for coffee and a selection of house made cakes and biscuits at any time during the day.We look forward to seeing you at Gip's in the near future.
Bunya BBQ pork cutlet with smoked kumara puree, Autumn root vegetables, crackling, saffron and pear chutney, with a cider glaze.
