The Tomakin Sports and Social Club will be transformed into ‘The Patch’ by Tully Heard, the operators behind The Growers in Shoalhaven, The Fernery in Mosman, and The Greens in North Sydney.
The 226-seat space by PONY Design will showcase fresh produce from across the region and will include an indoor-outdoor bar and eatery. The space can accommodate 118 guests inside and 108 guests outside and is set to open in July in time for the school holidays.
The menu will be sourced from local producers including Bodalla Dairy, Tilba Cheeses, Narooma Seafoods, Honor Bread and the drinks list will include Kosciusko Vodka, North of Eden Gin, Broulee Brewery and WildBrumby Distillery.
Tully Heard Group Director John Tully said in a media release: “Off the back of the success of the Growers- Shoalhaven we were engaged to oversee The Patch – Tomakin project. We are proud to launch the new concept and look forward to seeing the venue thrive and become a whole community space, after the traumas of the past few years on the South Coast – especially in the Tomakin area.”
The Tomakin area in the Eurobodalla Shire was heavily impacted by the 2019/2020 bushfires that devastated the region. The Tomakin Sports and Social Club was a gathering place for the community during the crisis.
The Club will still operate as a community club; just with a new look and feel.
