About Tom McHugo's
The only problem with a visit to Tom McHugo’s is that every other pub experience thereafter will likely pale in comparison. Chef and owner Tom Westcott has built this venue around both his inspirational creative bent and Tasmania’s abundant produce, with a menu changing daily based on what’s available from a few select and sustainable local suppliers. That goes for the drinks menu, too, which centres on small, sustainable and minimal intervention – mostly local, with a few wildcard options from further afield. The beer tap offering is equally inspiring. A convivial and somewhat familiar British-Australian pub atmosphere is invitation enough to while away a few hours watching the world go by; the menu and wine offering will have you glued to your seat.
