Lost Captain Restaurant and Taphouse

A taste to the Huon's past

’twas 1791, the expedition to find one lost Captain set sail…’

The intrepid Captain Huon de Kermadec was to lead the search aboard the fair ship Esperance to places thus far unseen by Europeans. Whilst the lost Captain was never found… much of the new world was.

The lost Captain would disappear into the pages of history unread. But, without his misadventures there would be no here… and so to the lost Captain, where he may rest, we raise a glass…!

Lost Captain Restaurant and Taphouse is the latest in a suite of new dining experiences to arrive in Huonville. Offering many dining spaces to suit the seasons – with a covered pergola in the front garden, the sunny Riverside Room which overlooks the Huon River, and the more secluded and opulent Captain’s Lounge.

The bar promotes Tasmanian wines, beers and spirits to complement a rounded menu that is seasonally curated bringing out the best of local Huon Valley produce.

The venue

Formerly home to the iconic ‘Huon Manor’, the house originally named Duvida was built in 1914 by William Short, son of another seafarer, Captain James Short, who operated a store and ferries across the Huon River in the 1800s.

The house has had a tasteful makeover with pressed tin ceilings and stained glassed windows thankfully all retained.

Open 7 days per week – Monday to Friday (12pm – late), Saturdays (8:30am – late), Sundays (8:30am – late), and Public Holidays (12pm – 6pm).
