Knuckles' signature dish is a mouthwatering port knuckle that you'll need to preorder to get as it takes a mammoth 4.5 hours to prepare - so don't forget to make the request when booking or sit tight and prepare to wait a while...
As Knuckles is housed within Harmonie Club which is hosts the annual Canberra Oktoberfest event (see above) so all celebration will likely be focused there. But that doesn't mean you can't tuck into the German fare that Knuckles offers daily.
