Eastern expands its food hamper options with a new ‘Order & Go’ Menu Launched
The success of our initial Eastern Hamper Menu has been overwhelming and we are delighted that Members are finding this offer so invaluable. Thank you to all Members who have purchased thus far.
Following requests from our Members, we’ve expanded this to an ‘Order & Go’ menu providing additional sections featuring a selection of pre-prepared meals including pizzas, slow cooked dishes that are great for the family, an expanded list of items from the butcher and a new seafood selection.
Our original three hampers – Essentials, Fruit & Veg and Meat Hampers can still be purchased; and with toilet rolls and tissues graduating from the endangered list to almost extinct status, we’ve added these to all three hampers.
The health and well being of our Eastern family remains our highest priority. We hope that the Eastern ‘Order & Go’ Menu service will be of assistance to you, and your families, providing one less worry in these times of great uncertainty.

New menu & new dining concept launches thursday, february 13
“Food tastes better when you enjoy it with family and friends.” – Anonymous
We are delighted to be presenting a new food experience for Members, your family and friends to enjoy when dining with us in The Members’ Lounge & Bar from Thursday, February 13. Our new Head Chef, Brian Elliott, joined us in November, 2019 and in that time he has been observing, finessing, cooking and trialling new dishes, immersing himself within his team and from today, you will be able to enjoy his sensational food.
Members will be able to select from salads, pizzas, burgers and Po and more substantial dishes from 11am until 4pm. For those looking for something quick post golf, our expanded sandwich menu and quick bites are available all day from 11am until 6pm.
Friday, February 14 will see the introduction of our new Dinner Menu that will operate on Wednesday and Friday evenings from 6pm with last orders at 8.45pm. The new menu will feature dishes from our all-day menu complemented by a selection of dishes that will only be available in the evening.
Your favourite dishes haven’t disappeared and will be complemented by a selection of taste sensations including Crocque Monsieur, Po Boys, Jambalaya, freshly shucked oysters, duck liver parfait, twice cooked pork belly and for those wanting something more substantial, we cannot choose between the double-cut pork chop or the dry aged black Angus porterhouse for dinner. For the sweet tooths, the orange scented creme brulee and dark chocolate marquise have our tastebuds salivating; and the house-made ice cream sounds perfect for the warmer evenings we are enjoying.
brian’s food philosophy
Brian’s passion is presenting dishes that showcase the best available seasonal produce, that has been grown by food producers he knows personally and, where possible, is locally sourced. Provenance is very important – Brian wants to know Mr Murphy – the Gippsland farmer that grows his green beans, where his oysters that will be shucked to order are sourced from, and the cheesemaker who will be supplying their beautiful produce for you to enjoy.
His desire to provide the freshest dishes for your enjoyment sees a new approach in our kitchen – we are making our own pizza dough and buns, we are pickling, curing and aging our meats – dishes including our dim sims and spring rolls that were previously brought in are now being made in-house whilst ice-cream is being made daily.
With a background in French cuisine, and a strong passion for Creole food, you will see some of these influences within the new menu; and Brian will also apply his own classically trained style to some of your favourites.
To enable us to deliver the best dining experience for you Brian, and his team, are creating dishes that can be prepared faster, are lighter in style and are presented in a refined and elegant way.
