At Yours

Description: Amidst the debacles of the year, we could all use a local brew – be it pilsner or porter – with daddio, so treat the old boy in your bubble to an at-home afternoon of lavish luxury – dad-style. Your old man deserves better than socks this Father’s Day season, so we’re throwing him a tea party with a twist straight from the Hippopotamus kitchen. And because he’s a busy man, we’re extending the celebrations so you can bring home the most impressive takeaways every day during Level 3. To appeal to dad’s discerning taste, we’ve swapped the tiny cakes for a full tray of Parrotdog beer-infused delicacies. Think Terry Coco-Cacao Stout Braised Beef Cheek Pies, Falcon APA Chorizo Arancini and Bitterbitch meets Wellington Chocolate Factory Macarons Even the scones have a little Birdseye Hazy in them. We call it Man Tea. $45 per person for Takeaway Man Tea, including tea sachet of your choice and delicacies made with Parrotdog brews (minimum 2 people) Add extra Man Tea order for $39 per person ADD-ONS: $10 for two Parrotdog beers $13 for three Parrotdog beers $20 for bottle of Mansfield & Marsh New Zealand sparkling wine TEA SELECTION: Peppermint English Breakfast Earl Gray Sancha PARROTDOG BEER SELECTION: Terry Coco-Cacao Stout Rhys Coconut Hazy IPA Yellowhammer Hazy Pale Ale Lager Available for click & collect during Level 3 between 12pm and 3pm only.
