AVC is continuing its Queensland pub renovation blitz with a major refresh set to take place at Bribie Island Hotel.
AVC says the renovation is part of a huge investment into the Queensland market, with recent renovations taking place at Beenleigh Tavern, Crown Hotel, Kings Beach Tavern, Fitzy’s, The Wallaby, Chancellors Tavern and Mihi Tavern.
Bribie Island Hotel will have a capacity of 250 seated guests in the bistro and 250 seated in the beer garden when it reopens at the end of the year.
The $2.2 million renovation, which is now underway, will see all of the pub’s spaces revitalised, including an indoor bistro, beer garden, sports bar and gaming room, and a new kids play area will be added to the beer garden.
Bribie Island is 34 kilometres long and is the smallest of three sand islands off the Sunshine Coast. AVC says the pub will be a place for both locals and tourists to gather and enjoy a classic pub experience.
During the first part of the renovation, the sports bar will remain open to serve food and beverage, and the gaming room will also stay open.
The menu will focus on value-led classics, featuring pub favourites, seafood specials, and a Salad Bar where guests can serve themselves for free with the purchase of a main meal.
“Bribie Island Hotel is a fantastic destination for locals and visitors to enjoy a pub experience, but it was time for a refresh,” says AVC’s chief operating officer Craig Ellison.
“We can’t wait for customers old and new to see the big reveal later this year and be able to use the new spaces.
“We’re building this pub for our locals, so we’re asking them what they want to see. Our customer feedback will shape the next chapter of the Bribie Island Hotel.”
