The doors to the North Lakes Tavern will reopen tonight following four weeks of renovations.
Venue Manager Alanis McLaren says this has been the biggest refurbishment since the tavern first opened in 2003.
“This is the biggest overhaul the tavern has had, and while it may have a new look for all the people that knew and loved the old tavern, it will have the same amazing feel it always had,” Alanis says.
“We have all new flooring, which took a little longer than expected, but it was definitely worth it in the end.
“We also have all new tiling, panelling, shelving behind the bar, paint and furniture.
“Even the bathrooms have been updated during the renovation.”
One of the talking points of the venue is the keg wall, which is lined with kegs from James Squire.
But it’s not just the furniture and building that has been transformed.
“Our guests can expect some new tap options and an updated menu, which is really exciting,” Alanis explains.
“Our amazing chef has put some really good items on there for people to enjoy.
“There are some new chicken dishes, more fish options, and heaps of share options.
“We have gone down that path of having some share plates and tappas for people to try.”
Alanis, who will open the doors at 5.30pm tonight, is looking forward to welcoming the community back for a drink.
“We know lots of locals have been counting down the days until we reopened, so we can’t wait to welcome back our locals plus new visitors,” Alanis says.
“We have an amazing local customer base so we are excited to get back to being the hub of the community.
“Come on down and have a drink and a meal and check out the renovations.”
