The much-anticipated Port Fairy wharf building has begun serving takeaway fish and chips with the restaurant set to open later this month.
The Wharf, operated by brothers and chefs Sean and Wayne Malady, had a soft opening on Saturday with visitors and locals making the most of the weekend’s fine conditions. “We did it quietly,” Sean said. “It was a huge weekend which was great. We opened the doors on Saturday for lunch and away we went.”
Sean spent a decade at the Cally and the Whalers hotels in Warrnambool and six years working in Apollo Bay, while Wayne has 30 years of hospitality experience, running a hotel and a bed and breakfast in Apollo Bay. “We’re happy to be open and are looking forward to working with the community.”
