Fentons at The Ipswich Club

Restaurant and Cafe

With one of the region’s best known chefs at the helm and a setting oozing heritage charm, The Ipswich Club has earned a following as a top event and wedding venue.

Chef Fenton Keogh ran a popular French restaurant in Ipswich for many years before he and wife Lisa began running events in the grand Ipswich Club building.

Their latest venture, Fenton’s Fired Up, is one of the city’s silver linings from the Covid restrictions.

Fenton rolled in a huge custom-made smoker onto the front lawn and began serving slow cooked American Barbecue-style meats and sides every Saturday night from 4pm to 7pm.

Diners can spread out on the veranda of the 1916 Queenslander – with a full bar operating inside – and in warmer months tables spill into the garden under fairy lights.

Choose from slow-cooked, smoky and falling apart-tender brisket, pulled lamb, pork ribs, chicken wings and lots more, all served with delectable sides such as mac n cheese, Mex beans and coleslaw. Prices range from AUD10 to aUD35 – and it’s all available takeaway.

Fenton can also take his set-up off site for events. Book a table or place your takeaway order by phoning them.
