Knife is a sexy new American-style smokehouse, where you can tuck into the signature smoked meats, our special ribs, tender chicken, both simple and exotic seafood, or perfectly-grilled steaks. 

Restaurateur Ed Saunders (also involved with the excellent restaurant, Fork) has created an eatery in which the ambience and the food are cosy, home-from-home, as well as simply sophisticated; a bit like New York loft meets Deep South smokehouse.


But for all the sophistication, there is something that’ll tempt the whole family, with a menu full of delights, from appetizers to desserts to cocktails.

In fact they’ve lavished quite a bit of attention on a special kids’ menu, and they clearly love catering to the smaller set. They’re also happy for you to drop in and take some Knife food away and have devised a takeaway menu for this purpose.


The bar is custom-built for easy drinking and laid-back lounging, and also serves as the perfect perch from which to view a big game, while they ply you with food and drink, and pamper you with attentive, snappy service.

Open Monday - Saturday from 11:00 - 23:00 and Public Holidays from 11:00 - 22:00
