The Woolwich Pier Hotel has re-opened its doors after being closed for renovations.

The Pier renovations take inspiration from the tradition of British pubs, particularly gastro pubs, but have their own twist. There are a series of spaces broken up into distinct areas that come together to form a precinct that reflects the sensibilities of British influences, and celebrate the social aspect of many clubs that were established in far-flung colonial outposts of the empire around the world. In these clubs British citizens would socialise in an environment that was a home away from home. The redesign is sympathetic of the heritage of the building – putting some soul back into the pub whilst affording a new lease on life with playful modern details and quirks.

“To thank locals for their continued patronage and in keeping with the ‘vintage sports club inspiration’, by joining The Pier Social Club we are offering the chance to win a trip to Wimbledon 2014 for 2 adults,” says Managing Director of Halcyon Hotels Anthony Medich. “Our goal for the renovations was to ensure that The Pier has something to offer everyone.” More information is available on the pub’s website.

The new courtyard or ‘Terrace’ is a take on a vintage sports club with a subtle British influence that could just as comfortably exist in Australian sporting history. There are the Pavilions on ‘The Lawn’ and ‘The Clubhouse’ with an enticing kids’ area. The large ‘Dining Hall’ is bustling yet warm and inviting whilst ‘Upstairs’ takes its inspiration from British Colonial with a campaign influence. Here are antiques and curiosities gathered from travels around the world with all the finest treasures kept and displayed proudly in ‘The Good Room’. ‘The Balcony’ is a relaxed breezy wrap-around verandah with a British West Indies feel.

Not only an iconic pub with great views, for the past two years in a row The Pier has received the coveted 3 Schooner Award, the highest rating for pub food in the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Pub Guide.

The Woolwich Pier Hotel is owned and operated by Halcyon Hotels Pty Ltd. “The Pier’s focus has always been on providing a high quality menu using fresh produce,” says Anthony. With the renovations, we wanted to extend our offering by becoming a great destination for socialising and unique beverages.

The initial design was completed by SJB Interiors with final design development and styling by Luchetti Krelle, with the works being completed by Chris Field and his team at CWF Constructions.
