A collaboration between chef Dinah Blackburn and interior designer Lee Rainwater, Hunter is where East Austin returns to the Old West. Styled like the saloons of yore, here you can sip cactus wine and enjoy the robust taste of farm-to-table American fare without the frills.
‘A really good visit to a vibrant pub. Great mix of customers: students, couples, groups of girls and lots of footy fans all socialising together. Just like a proper pub should be - all things to all people! My wife left wishing she were younger, ‘if I were a student, I’d definitely use this all the time.' - Ed Passey, Punch Taverns
'Visited on a Saturday night for pre-dinner drinks. Welcoming smell of mulled wine was great. The welcome by the young man behind the bar was warm, heartfelt and genuine' - TripAdvisor
'People love The Cowley Retreat because it’s spacious, kept in great order, and welcoming. The food is delicious, yet very affordable – students love it. The service is great, helped enormously by having current and ex-students working there alongside other professionals.' - Henry Rudd, OBU Hockey President
