An emporium of cheese, wine, bread and other epicurean delights within the walls of an 1830s flour mill on the banks of the Tamar River. The produce has been carefully sourced for quality, practicality, entertainment and inspiration.
Stillwater Restaurant and Black Cow Bistro executive chef Craig Will and sommelier James Welsh pay particular attention to selecting seasonal, premium goods for you to enjoy. Bianca Welsh and manager Emma Richardson carefully select unique and aesthetically beautiful items to fill your home or adorn yourself with.
While most visitors are lured by the impressive array of cheeses from near and far, there remains much else to see. Handmade chocolates, bespoke timber, Tasmanian whisky, lavender bears, artisan soap and contemporary jewellery are a few other items to discover. Sit down with a coffee and drink in the surrounds, or take one with you.
Wander upstairs to the gallery, where works by Tasmania’s best emerging and established artists are exhibited and you’ll catch sweeping views of the river. Accentuating the Providore’s glorious stockpile is a bevvy of bubbly staff all too happy to share a piece of local knowledge and send you away with a picnic. Enjoy.
