Tilly and Wills group have officially completed a million-dollar renovation of The Richmond Inn.

Located in the heart of Richmond, New South Wales, the venue is the latest addition to the group’s portfolio, which also includes the Buena Vista Hotel and Bistro in Sydney’s Mosman and The Prince Consort in Brisbane.

“I love the Hawkesbury area and have been keeping an eye out for the perfect opportunity to create something special in Richmond,” says Tilly and Wills CEO Nick Wills.

“I wanted to create a welcoming place that has its own and unique style, somewhere for everyone to enjoy – whether that is for a family-day trip, visiting for a quiet meal, or with your crew for a bit of cheeky fun.”

Brad Sloane is heading up the kitchen after time spent working across the group as executive chef.

Sloane was named the NSW Australian Hotels Association Chef of the Year and has created a menu with all the classics including a Sunday roast with seasonal vegetable; three types of Parmigiana using local meats and cheeses; pizzas and house-made chicken schnitzel.

There will also be interactive cooking experiences, which will see spit roasts and smoked meat displays in the venue’s spacious outdoor areas.

The Richmond Inn is now open and operates seven days a week from 10am.
