From its humble beginnings at the quirky end of King Street, Flour Drum has flourished into a local Newtown favourite renowned for it’s creative flair. With a new dinner service set to commence in August, diners will soon be able to hangout at Flour Drum both day and night.

Drawing ‘foodspiration’ from around the globe, the dinner menu will offer a distinctly nostalgic dining experience ranging from classic throwback dishes to inventive takes on comfort foods. With Executive Chef and co-owner John Ageletos at the helm, diners can expect an emphasis on slow-cooking, tradition and guilty pleasure to be front and centre of both the dinner and dessert menus. A selection of Australian wines, beers and quirky cocktails will provide the perfect compliment to any culinary combination.

By day, Flour Drum will continue to offer up refreshing interpretations of breakfast and brunch classics. Local favourites including the velvety banoffee pancakes with dulce de leche and Anzac biscuit crumble, Moutai-cured Atlantic salmon, fusion style ravioli wontons and the popular house-made pappardelle lamb ragù (with a subtle Asian twist) will remain staple all-day items. A treasure trove of rotational baked goods will also remain, including reinterpretations of two Australian classics: the humble lamington (with flavours ranging from creme brûlée to black forest and red velvet), and the pavlova cake. The new range of giant plate-sized cookies is also here to stay.

Flour Drum’s interior is rustic and eclectic. The front room is a cosy coffee/wine/dessert bar. It opens up into a diner-friendly space with individual and communal tables alongside a dramatic 12-meter mural depicting a quintessentially Australian pastoral scene by Sydney’s infamous street artist Scott Mash (famous for his Kanye West and Tony Abbott murals).
