If you are looking for a kid-friendly place to chill out with friends or family, do check out Timbre @ Gillman. It is a live music venue that showcases a roster of home-grown music acts. Not only that, every weekend, they will transform into a family favourite with its Super Social BBQ Programme, offering free thematic activities for the kids to play while the adults can relax and chill. The best part is that they will rotate their thematic activities every few months.
Timbre @ Gillman Kids Activities
For October, they have the Halloween Theme Activities. The arts and craft for every weekend are different. When we were there, the kids get to do Paper Straw Bats.
They set their bouncy castle and games in a safe lawn compound just outside their alfresco dining, making it possible for parents to sit and chill while the kids had fun. For those who prefer indoor, they have a small air-conditioned bar for dining too.
Please take note the last timing of the kids activities. For example, the face painting/body arts last call is at 7.30pm and the arts and craft activities are 7.45pm.
Timbre @ Gillman Food
There are wide varieties of foods that will cater to everyone! There are tapas, salads, pasta, pizzas and usual mains like fish, chicken, pork and beef prepared in various ways.
The roasted duck pizza is their speciality, and the taste is delectable. Kids will love this too as there were crispy popiah skin and mozzarella cheese at the top of the pizza making it a wonderful combination.
The poached and grilled bone-in chicken thigh marinated with spicy cilantro yoghurt and confit is tender, juicy and flavourful.
While the grilled pork belly with mirin, ginger & soy is fatty. So those who are afraid of the fatty meat, please avoid ordering this. The meat is tender, but the fats won’t melt in the mouth.
Hence, if you are ordering dishes from their BBQ, check out their Saturday and Sunday promotions whereby it comes with 2 glasses of wine or 2 bottled beers + BBQ of your choice at $30++. For other promotions, please refer to here.
The truffles fries is nice but for $10, I find the serving is too little. Lastly, for the Timbre Buffalo Wings, I had requested for the chicken and spicy sauce to separate so that the kids can eat too. It is delicious and goes well with the spicy sauce.
On the whole, I love laid-back ambience that made it effortless for me to relax and chill out while the activities occupy the kids. The staffs were very attentive and helpful. They made me very welcomed. The live band music was great. The only downside is the foods are slightly pricey.
