Steve Scott, Hunter & Barrel operations manager said "We have focused on creating a unique, comfortable and fun experience for our guests at Hunter & Barrel – every choice we have made, from the cooking style to the plateware to our sequence of service were designed with this spirit in mind. We want our guests to feel that a visit with us is a celebration – exceptional food, drinks and social atmosphere to enjoy. Hunter & Barrel will be an exciting addition to the dining offering at Eastland's Town Square."

The new Eastland Shopping Centre is due to be completed later this year, with other high profile restaurateurs including George Calombaris, Daniel Wilson and Frank Camorra opening restaurants within the complex. Hunter & Barrel is due to open its doors in late October.
