The Woolwich Pier Hotel Reopens with New Look

The Woolwich Pier Hotel has re-opened after a major redesign, offering a modern French-brasserie menu with a Japanese twist under Head Chef Glenn Tabudlo.

Woolwich Pier Hotel 

The waterside venue known as “The Pier”was first established in 1885 and the new look venue brings a contemporary, casual elegance with a refreshing coastal feel, capitalising on its harbour-side location, whilst carefully respecting the buildings heritage fabric.

A dramatic staircase with an impressive mural leads up to The Social – a spacious indoor dining room offering views of Sydney Harbour. A standout feature of the venue is the 70-seat, spacious wrap around balcony with stunning views stretching over Cockatoo Island and the harbour.

For a more casual affair, guests can enjoy The Parlour bar with its large angular marble tables, leather booth seating with velvet armchairs, or enjoy an alfresco dining experience in the courtyard.

Head Chef Glenn Tabudlo has taken a new direction with the food offering in line with the venue redesign. Diners can expect a new brasserie menu influenced by modern and classic French flavours and Japanese ‘umami’.
