There’s no doubt about it; it’s perfectly normal to be craving a cosy winter escape when it comes to this time of year. But for some of us, it’s a hard ask, mainly if travelling into the bush isn’t a viable option! So, where might you find the next best thing without having to go obscene distances? Look no further than Robina’s much-loved pub, Robina Pavilion, as they’ve only gone ahead and teamed up with the legends at Stone & Wood to bring you all a very special event: Robina Pavilion X Stone & Wood’s fire pits by the lake.
From now until the end of Winter, locals can book themselves a private fire pit Lakeside, complete with marshmallow toasting kits, cured meats & cheese boards and Stone & Wood’s Stone Beer Winter 2021 Vintage Release. How tasty and good does all this sound?!
Once you’ve assembled your crew around a hot crackling fire, Robina Pavilion will pull out a moreish platter of Tasmanian Double Brie Cheese, Prosciutto di Parma, Balsamic Olives, Grilled Chorizo and Seasonal Fruits. And if you feel like something a little different, there’s a special wintry cocktail menu, including Robina Pavilion’s house-brewed mulled wine!
No truly authentic fireside experience is quite complete without the obligatory roasting of marshmallows. You’ll have the chance to compete over whose marshmallow is roasted best with a complete set of steel and oak skewers on hand — guaranteed to cause a laugh or two amongst your group!
What’s a fire with a beer or two though? The special release Stone & Wood beer is a homage to brewing history, made using wood-fired stones and focussing on high-quality Australian craft malts and barrel ageing techniques. Pouring dark brown, the Stone & Wood Beer starts with a rich and chocolatey aroma followed by coffee, dark chocolate, and biscuity flavours before a firm bitter finish. We could get around that!
We think you’ll agree; this is possibly the perfect drink to be sipping on cold winter nights, a premium local beer made for moments by the fire with friends and never-ending yarns — we all know that one person…
Why not enjoy the cooler weather whilst it’s here? These toasty two-hour fire pit packages are available to book for groups of up to 10 from noon Friday to Sunday throughout winter. Bookings can be made now, so what are you waiting for? Time to get toasty Gold Coasters!
Where: Robina Pavilion, 229 Ron Penhaligon Way, Robina
When: From 12pm noon Friday to Sunday until the end of Winter
