Welcome to Eastland

Hunter & Barrel is one of the best options for a Christmas dinner in Melbourne, especially if you’re looking for an exceptional dining experience, but prefer not to meet in the central city. 

You will find us in the town square redevelopment in Ringwood, which is one of the city’s most lively hubs for dining, shopping, and entertainment. 

Throughout the year, Hunter & Barrel is a go-to for fantastic, hearty meals cooked in a style that pays homage to ancient culinary traditions such as rotisserie and coal grills, as well as for expertly mixed cocktails and an impressive wine list. This silly season, Hunter & Barrel still offers all of those attractive features, with the added appeal of Christmas merriment and seasonal cheer. 

Host an Eastland Christmas function at Hunter & Barrel

Functions at Eastland’s Hunter & Barrel are stress-free, memorable, and outright fun. 

For groups of 11 or fewer, you can opt to order from our a la carte menu to offer guests the full range of our incredible feasts, from shared platters to individual dishes. 

Larger groups of 12 or more can make the most of our set menu options, which ensures the whole table receives their meals in a timely manner, and that the night is streamlined and seamless from start to finish. 

The Hunter & Barrel Eastland restaurant is also home to the most private dining spaces of any of our locations. We have three separate private dining areas, offering space for 8 to 16 people, as well as a semi-private dining space for up to eight guests. You can also book more than one of these spaces together if you have an especially large group, which is perfect for corporate events.

The gift of communal dining for Christmas

In ancient days, sharing a meal was the nightly ritual, and while modern dining means sharing a space, our passion for communal dining meals sharing the experience as well. 

On both our a la carte and set menus, you will find shared meals for you and your guests. These include some of our favourite dishes, such as crispy pork belly, chicken skewers, and herb roasted pumpkin. For the seafood lovers in your group, rest assured they’ll be satisfied with our newly added Ocean Feast, featuring the freshest selection of mussels, prawns, and barramundi. 

Meals are served on large platters, piled with generous portions, and completed with chunky fries, perfectly roasted vegetables, dips, and sides. These dishes allow guests to try multiple of our meals at once, making us one of the best Christmas party venues in Melbourne.
