Josh Leemhuis & his partner, Shell, have run a family hospitality business for many years. They honed their skills running the iconic George Harcourt Inn - more affectionately known as “The George”. They know how to bring people together, create a great atmosphere and provide excellent food and drink. But, just like the brave man who inspired their new establishments name, they knew it was time to do something bold, new and take everything to the next level. Casey Jones is the result of years of hard work, meticulous planning and countless hours in search of the perfect ingredients & unique beverages.
When you arrive at Casey Jones you won’t have to stand around awkwardly waiting to be seated or try and find yout own table. Our own Maître d', Sorrel, will be waiting to greet you with a friendly smile and show you to your table. You won’t need to waste your night lining up at the bar to order food either - Casey Jones has full table service! Good old-fashioned service will make your night at Casey Jones one to remember.
It’s hard to define the style of Casey Jones menu–it really is that unique. But if it were summed up in a few words it’d be ‘Southern American Spanish Fusion’. Headed up by Head Chef, Abel, smokey flavours, citrus fruits and a variety of artisan cheeses underpin many of the dishes. From the soft shell crab on charcoaled brioche to the egg pappardelle pasta with braised lamb shoulder there really is something to delight even the most seasoned foodie or picky diner.
Head barman, Jamie, has spent countless hours tasting, testing and tweaking our truly unique list of cocktails and other beverages–and he’s enjoyed every moment of it! His mission was to create a truly new combination of flavours and there’s something for everyone in the mixer. Does he have a favourite? It’s hard to choose but the Maple Bacon-infused Old Fashion or the classic Shrub Cocktail is a must try!
