New Spring Menu at Brisbane Marriott’s Motion Dining

In conjunction with the 20 million dollar renovation at Brisbane Marriott , Motion Bar and Grill has had name change to Motion Dining. 

Chef Sumit also introduces his debut Spring menu which celebrates local Queensland produce, delivering the highest quality of food.

He trained in India, with his passion for food leading him to Sri Lanka early on his career. He later worked at Michelin Star Restaurant, NoMad in New York and has now joined the Marriott family.

“My role at Motion Dining is incredibly rewarding and motivating. I have just returned from a Chef’s
masterclass in Fiji where we learnt the raw talents of cooking from the land. I was so excited to share this knowledge with the kitchen team.”

The Charming Squire

Location: South Bank, Brisbane

Price: $7-$55

Food: 9/10

Service: 9/10

Overall experience: 9/10

Popular Brisbane bar and restaurant The Charming Squire recently turned one, and to celebrate, they invited the members of their Beer Club to celebrate with them over beers and canapes.

The Charming Squire has been one of my favourite venues in Brisbane since it opened so I naturally jumped at the chance to attend this function! The bar exerts cool and casual vibes and is reminiscent of history with wooden tables, high ceilings and a working James Squire brewery on display.

There is also an elegant restaurant with full table-service for those who are after a more intimate dining as the pub can get quite busy! Both menus offer a range of different options to suit the setting and to complement the flavours of the beers and ciders. Bar options include pizzas and burgers, and restaurant options include contemporary starter and main dishes.

At the birthday celebration, we tried a couple of craft beers including popular fruity pale ale 150 Lashes and The Gallows, a particularly hoppy India Pale Ale (IPA). We were also treated to some delicious pork sliders!



Those who attended were also given a unique gift – a James Squire branded bottle opener.
