Following a $6 million refurbishment, Shoal Bay Country Club (SBCC) in Port Stephens has revealed a brand new look and food offering.

New owner Andrew Lazarus says he’s honoured to add SBCC to The Eastern Group’s portfolio, which includes The Exchange Hotel and El Topo Mexican Restaurant.

“With history dating back to 1930s, locals and tourists alike have loved the venue and made memories here for many years,” he says.

“We wanted to reignite this passion with the refurb and bring something fresh and exciting to the Port Stephens area whilst ensuring the hotel’s history has been preserved.”

Executive chef Atick Elahi has worked closely with local suppliers to create an extensive menu for the venue.

Breakfast at Mermaids cafe features breakfast bowls, Middle Eastern baked eggs and a wild mushroom omelette, while the Kitchen and Patio serves up pub classics for lunch and dinner such as burgers, woodfired pizza, grilled meats and seafood platters.

“We have created a menu with a wide variety of culinary styles to enable us to cater from breakfast through to those late-night dessert cravings,” says Elahi.

The venue receives daily pastry and bread deliveries from Sydney bakery Sonoma and the remainder is all made on site daily.
