Cupitt’s Restaurant Renovations Commence19 June 2020 – posted in: Restaurant, Uncategorized

The Restaurant at Cupitt’s Estate has been operating for over 13 years. The business has grown considerably in this period, but the kitchen and amenities have not. During this time of growth, there have been changes to accessibility codes, environmentally sensitive standards and how visitors experience our venue. We are pleased we can embark on this renovation to provide an enhanced dining experience for our visitors as well as offer our team better facilities and equipment.

We are pleased to be working with Blue Chip Building Solutions on the construction of the new kitchen, bar and restrooms. Renovations commenced on 15 June and take place over a four-month period. During this time we will remain open Wednesday – Sunday for normal trading hours. We are now closed every Monday and Tuesday. 

Food and Drink offerings 

Whilst renovations are underway our restaurant dining room will remain open with the menu being prepared in temporary kitchens that have been erected adjacent to the Restaurant. These kitchens contain all the same equipment as our current kitchen, and the current tasting menu will remain. 

We also have a pop-up style Pizza Bar on the lawn, which will operate Wednesday – Sunday. Visitors can enjoy alfresco dining, with outside tables set out on the lawn and table service provided. We do have some covered outdoor tables available in poor weather. 

We do hope you continue to enjoy our venue and assure you that the construction works have been carefully planned to minimise guest disruption. 

Project works

Renovations to the existing Restaurant building includes new amenities, kitchen, bar, pathways, parking and staff facilities. 

Operational Impacts 

Clearly marked signage and temporary fencing will be used around the Restaurant, however, we encourage visitors to be alert in this area. On occasions, the main car park will be closed off and alternative parking areas will be delineated. 

Standard construction times will take place between 6.00 am – 6.00 pm Monday to Friday. Saturday works from 7.00 am – 12.00 pm. There are no works scheduled on Sundays.
