The Boathouse Group Acquires Central Coast Gem The Patonga Beach Hotel.

Media Release: 28th of September 2017

The Boathouse Group is pleased to announce the addition of The Patonga Beach Hotel, on the New South Wales’ Central Coast, to the group’s portfolio of hospitality venues.

The Boathouse will officially take possession of The Patonga Hotel on October 6th, 2017.

Surrounded by Brisbane Water National Park and the Hawkesbury River, the Patonga Hotel is a stunning waterfront location. The venue compliments and strengthens the Boathouse mission of providing a classic Australian seaside experience. 

The trading of The Patonga Beach Hotel will continue as normal throughout the summer of 2017/18 with only menu changes being made initially.

A rebranding and small renovation of the venue is planned from Autumn 2018 after consultation with the local community. This rebranding will maintain the hotel’s character while incorporating The Boathouse Group aesthetics, namely an abundance of fruit and flowers, vibrant gardens and relaxed coastal interiors.  

The hotel rebrand will not change the core offering provided. The café, beer garden and beachside takeaway will remain the focus of the business.

“We want to combine what they’re doing now as a pub, and what we do well, which is beachside cafes,” said Andrew Goldsmith, owner of The Boathouse Group.

“We take our seafood seriously, and what better way to maintain standards than to set up shop in Patonga, a town built for fishing. We love the spot, love the Central Coast, and love that it’s close to our existing businesses,” said Goldsmith.

The Patonga Beach Hotel is a quintessential Australian coastal gem.  

“We are excited to maintain this iconic venue and share it with locals, day-trippers and tourists, both domestic and international,” he said.
