Our Bistro offers the very best in Maitland Pub Food. Our menu is designed to serve the masses, but our cooking team adds a special ‘finishing touch’ that sets our food apart from the rest. The team chooses local, fresh produce where available, and is a stickler for fresh, daily preparation, not mass production. On top of a huge range of beers on tap, our beverage list also includes the best wines from the biggest and smallest vineyards across Australia, with an emphasis on our local wines from the Hunter. Shenanigans is also the gateway to the Hunter Wine Country.
