Tathra Hotel Monthly News Letter - january 2019
Happy New Year! Best wishes to all of you for the year ahead. January is the busiest month of the year for us and we hope all visitors to Tathra enjoy their holiday.
LIVE MUSIC is on every afternoon throughout January - Sam Martin and The Sundowners are back with one of their wonderful creations for a week from Thursday 3rd. Gleny Rae will be their special guest for a week, but none of us ever know who else will be joining them on stage. From Thursday 10th we are looking forward to welcoming Cigany Weaver a terrific group of musicians from Brisbane. Local group Wrack ‘n Ruin will then be with us for four days before talented singer songwriter Gemma Glendenning wraps up the month. Open mic is taking a break this month but returns the first Friday in February. Planning for a Tathra Hotel Choir has been going on for a while now and it is hoped it will also get going after the holidays.
December was a month for finishing things off at the hotel. THE HUMPBACK BREWERY installation was finally completed and the first brew done on Saturday December 15th. A second batch was brewed the following week. Fermentation is complete and both are being conditioned prior to kegging and pouring! Visit the website or the facebook page for more updates.
The Childrens playground was also finished – Karl and his team have done an excellent job creating a great space for kids to play while their parents can keep a bit of an eye on them from the hotel balcony. There has been a very positive response to the playground since it was opened by our young consultants Mabel and Elsa Martin and we hope it will give much pleasure for years to come.
We were hoping to get the small kitchen downstairs going by Christmas but time has beaten us – hopefully it is not far away and that in time it will be able to offer a different range of food and take some pressure off the main kitchen.
Just as we finish some things off we start to plan for the next stage of refurbishment. Recently we lodged a DA with council for a theatre / performance space where The Trove Shop now sits. It will be a multi function venue with retractable tiered seating that can host live theatre, dance, film and concerts as well as being used for catered functions and conferences. All being well we intend to start construction in May.
Mike Armstrong, our head chef, has recently changed our MENU (See new menu) and it is proving to be well received. We have recently welcomed two new chefs – Alan from Ireland and Mai from Vietnam – we hope both enjoy their move to Tathra and that they can add some of their favourite dishes to the menu.
Sharon and Werner have reopened The Trove, the antique, art & collectable shop in December. No doubt they will have collected some interesting stuff over winter.
The four new “Heritage” rooms above the bar are proving popular with travellers and special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. The budget motel rooms have also been well booked. All the accommodation can be booked online through the hotel’s website.
Finally, best wishes to you all for the festive season and 2019!
Cliff and Sayaka
