Brisbane‘s lunch scene has just welcomed another incredible midday destination. Located in Post Office Square, Isles Lane is a gastropub complete with modern Australian cuisines and comfortable vibes. Owners Trent Meade and Matt Blyth are well versed in the language of entertainment and already run two favourites of the Brisbane night scene, The Met and GPO.

Post Office Square is renowned for being a relaxing respite from the hustle and bustle of Brisbane’s CBD. The lush green lawn is the epitome of peacefulness and Isles Lane has sought to emulate this calming effect. The interior is designed to maximise the effect of natural light and the clean-cut concrete walls and faux greenery signal understated elegance and aim to make customers feel content. The black and white tiled floors and Parisian style chairs herald ideas about international eateries and their predilection for plump, enjoyable meals like beef brisket and rotisserie chicken.

Chef Lucie Woods has devised a menu hybridising international flavours with a modern Australian twist. For instance, she has combined roasted bone marrow with crisp halloumi chips, a newfound Australian favourite. Larger dishes made for sharing include oregano lamb shoulder and lobster rolls with tangy mayo and iceberg lettuce. To create her tantalising dishes, Woods draws on fresh and seasonal produce grown by local Queensland farmers. The food menu is complemented by an extensive beverage list featuring impressive craft beers and interesting rotational brews, as well as a variety of wine and cocktails. For breakfast, customers can be treated with barista made coffee sourced from Kai Coffee located on the Sunshine Coast.
