After starting his career locally at Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, Sam notched up time at two hatted Fins of Byron Bay with seafood legend Steve Snow. Heading back to the Hunter, Sam worked under Robert Molines as head chef at Bistro Molines followed by a move to Sydney where he worked with Robert Marchetti at Icebergs and then Jeremy Strode of Bistro CBD (Merivale Group) where he was senior sous chef.

The wine list under co-owner Patrick Haddock’s guidance continues to command its presence as one of Newcastle’s largest and most engaging. Combining a mix of classic and modern wine labels as well as an ever changing and diverse by the glass offering including a whole page devoted to Coravin.

The front of house team led by Pat Hester who has a decade of hospitality experience continues to be at the top of its game, offering thoughtful and informative service of the ever-changing menus. The team has created a friendly space synonymous with one of Newcastle’s best food and wine offerings.
