Coogee Common serving diners a unique farm to table experience
February 15, 2020
Coogee Common is the most recent in a series of projects from Hesperia breathing new life into a neglected former landmark.
The restoration project has revived the heritage buildings and surrounding landholdings of the old Coogee Hotel, vacant since the 1970s, preserving the landmark for future generations.
Now an acclaimed farm to table restaurant, Coogee Common offers seasonal menus based around its own produce.
Coogee Common’s 2,000 square metre kitchen garden – filled with a plot of maturing olive and fig trees, herbs, terraced vegetable beds and beehives – not only supplies the kitchen, but also provides beautiful views for diners.
In developing Coogee Common, Hesperia revived the existing sandstone heritage pub with the addition of new kitchens and a contemporary dining room and terrace. Diners have the option of different zones in which to dine: a series of front rooms in the original pub, pavilion dining spaces, a modern dining room, and an indoor-outdoor deck.
