Pope Joan enjoys a tipple and likes nothing more than sharing a beverage with friends. During the day, maybe an AllPress brew, tea, juice, mineral water or a cheeky wine! While at night, choose your new favourite wine, beer, cider, spirit or cocktail. Our drinks celebrate what the seasons deliver; hot apple cider in May, a mulled wine with brandy in July, Spring Vienna Excelsior beer in October and perhaps a watermelon and cucumber spritzer come December.
During the daytime, The Pope offers superb AllPress coffee, a range of teas, including Larsen & Thomson and our homegrown herbal varieties. Our chai is by Calmer Sutra, and the hot chocolate is made by us. For something cool, we have a selection of locally-sourced soft drinks, as well as biodynamic juices on rotation. There’s always a seasonal brew on the go, such as our Winter Warmer of honey, ginger and lemon, or maybe you feel like a liquid breakfast. Bloody Mary, anyone?
By night, Pope Joan offers an ever-changing array of excellent locally crafted beers and ciders, while our wine list showcases the growing number of local, talented winemakers doing their thing in smaller, specialty vineyards around the state and beyond. International favourites, however, are not forgot. She takes her whiskeys seriously, and gins too, with other spirits, apertifs and cocktails too numerous to mention…
