The Patch, Tomakin is now open

New kid on the block The Patch, Tomakin is now open to the public today following a major transformation. The former Tomakin Sports & Social Club hospitality space has been completely revamped with a modern-coastal inspired fit-out that’s family friendly and accentuates its idyllic location in the Eurobodalla Shire.

Showcasing the abundance of fresh produce from across the region, The Patch, Tomakin includes an indoor-outdoor bar and eatery that can accommodate 118 guests inside and 108 guests outside. Along with some of the best live music on the South Coast, guests can expect a fresh new food, drink and cocktail offering.

Menu highlights include Clyde River oysters with citrus granita and grilled calamari with chilli and orange emulsion. While on the drinks front expect all the classics with a few creative twists, like ‘The Patch’ mojito made with blueberries and freshly grown mint. Finally, an enticing kids menu that includes a free scoop of Bodalla Dairy ice cream for dessert will inspire the fussiest of eaters.

Newly appointed Venue Manager, Jessie Collin, brings over a decade of national and international experience in the food and beverage industry to the role. The French-Canadian born South Coast local who calls Australia home, has a passion for building enticing menu offerings and creating memorable dining experiences.

She says, “A lot of my life has been spent in big cities working for the likes of Accor and establishments like The Fairmont but I’ve fallen for the South Coast. It’s hard not to be swept up in the natural beauty and the fresh produce right at your doorstep.”

She adds, “It’s great to finally open the doors to The Patch, Tomakin. It’s a bold new dining venue that’s really going to bring life to the area, I can’t wait for people to experience it.”

Respected hospitality group, Tully Heard, the team behind projects such as the Acre Group of restaurants and projects such as The Growers, Shoalhaven, The Fernery Mosman and the Greens, North Sydney – have added this innovative new venue to their portfolio.

Tully Heard Group Director John Tully comments, “Off the back of the success of The Growers, Shoalhaven, we jumped on the opportunity to launch the new concept a little further south in Tomakin. We are looking forward to seeing the venue thrive and become a whole community space, especially after the traumas of the past few years on the South Coast.”

The Patch, Tomakin is a new chapter for the Tomakin community who endured the relentless fires of 2019, and where the Tomakin Club became the central place of refuge in extremely challenging times.
