Tucked away in an old sandstone warehouse on Hobart’s iconic waterfront, Peacock and Jones is a hidden gem that celebrates the beauty of Tasmanian food. If you’re passionate about local produce, give us a visit; from your prime position in the open kitchen you’ll see your food as it’s sliced, smell it as it’s seasoned and hear it as it sizzles. Or, if you’re the kind who likes to be surprised, enjoy a spot in the under-croft away from the kitchen and surround yourself in the remarkable relics of a jam-making enterprise. Our menu is constantly changing, because our dishes are driven by what Tasmania grows.

The staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. Amber could answer all our questions without hesitation and was a tremendous help in helping us to match the wines to the meal.

The food was excellent and the balance in each element of each dish was superb. The steak tartare and the kingfish an absolute standout.

I would highly recommend Peacock and Jones. it was an outstanding evening.

So I decided to go again this year. Food was delicious, but the wait staff were overwhelmed and inexperienced which was a let down.

Negatives: Three boiled potatoes as a $17 entree was hard to understand. Lack of description on menus seemed unnecessarily pretentious and unhelpful. Dessert unremarkable.
Positives: Staff were friendly, good atmosphere, wine good, convenient location, and our mains were delicious.

Whilst we enjoyed our meal, for us it didn’t have the ‘wow’ factor. Service, whilst friendly, was hit and miss . We had to ask to have wine glasses refilled etc (wine was kept away from the table) and staff weren’t very engaging .

The food and setting / location are excellent. The service lacked the attention to detail that you might expect from such a restaurant, we waited a long time between courses and we felt like we had been forgotten.

We came because the restaurant states it has a vegetarian menu on their website but when we got there, the options were really poor. Macaroni and cheese or a plate of Roasted Pumpkin, unimaginative and disappointing. We were going to leave to go somewhere else but after talking to the lovely wait staff, we decided to stay. My entree was a savoury bean pancake with goats curd which was balanced and delicious but my main was the macaroni and cheese, which was ok but a but I have had better for cheaper. I was surprised to see mac and cheese in a fine dining restaurant. To justify the price, it really had to be something sensational and unfortunately it fell flat. My partner enjoyed his meat dishes and finished off my main for me, he agreed it was a bit starchy and bland.

It's certainly our intention that all of our menu appeals to the tastes of all of our guests, so we hope that you may return to try out our vegetarian options again in the future.

We enjoyed our dinner at Peacock & Jones. Food was good and service top notch.

Google maps shows it as more or less waterfront venue, so we were a bit disappointed to find out there are actually no views. We were travelling and had not been to the area before, asked for harbour/water views specifically at time of reservation. No one came back to us to say that was not an option.

The venue honours its Jam Factory Heritage in style and presents a cosy and intimate dining experience. The food served was absolutely amazing and on that basis alone, we will visit every time we come to Hobart. All credit to the chef, the food was faultless. The servers are delightful, We constantly had to ask for out wine (they keep the bottle at the serving station) , forgot our bread request, serving station was overflowing with dirty glasses, lots of confusion over other guests booking and seating......... it seemed the kitchen has it nailed, the venue is gorgeous and the front of house team are willing

Last minute booking turned into an amazing night. Had 4 entrees and 1 main between us. Asked the waitress to surprise us with her selecting it. She chose the duck for us, perfect choice. Could not fault Peacock and Jones in any way. Will definitely visit next time we are in Hobart
