We’re all well acquainted with the age old adage ‘New Year, New Me’. We’re taking our own positive twist on the butchered cliché and we’re running with ‘New Year, Better Us’. 2018 is going to be our year.
After a shaky end to 2016, 2017 could only get better and by golly did it ever. 2018 was the most successful year in the venues 20 year history. We were lucky enough to have our highest staff retention rate ever, retaining over 80% of our staff from the previous year (for hospitality, this is impressive), which we are over the moon about.
We booked HUGE live acts including Daryl Braithwaite, 80’s rockers Dragon as well as hosting some seriously impressive cover bands while expanding our live music reach even further. We took leaps and bounds in the right direction to supporting our local music scene, hosting two extremely successful Friday Froths locals nights (sponsored by brewers Young Henrys and Pirate Life), as well as hosting school holiday events for kids!
Our food consistency, return customer rate and the positive feedback we received throughout the calendar year was through the roof! We performed so well across the board we were nominated for 10 awards for industry excellency by the Australian Hotels Association (AHA).
What’s on for next year? Only time will tell. Whatever we end up doing we know we’re going to give it our best crack with a big smile on our faces.
We hope to see you all this year sometime! Drop by for a schooner for a feed sometime soon!
