The Bartley Hotel (formerly The Bartley Tavern) is owned by the RDJones Group, who also own The Moseley, The Gully, The Woodcroft and The Holdy. So it’s little surprise that their latest makeover brings The Bartley in line with their other venues – offering up some fantastic indoor/outdoor spaces, a fire pit, and a huge bar area complete with couches, fireplaces and multiple places to hang out with your mates.
The old TAB area has been moved, to create a spacious hang out space for patrons, which flows on from the revamped dining area. An enormous outdoor screen delivers all the latest sporting action on their new deck, while plastic cafe blinds protect us from the weather in Winter, and look set to bring the outdoors in when the weather improves.
Featuring rich timber, stonework and fresh colours, patrons now sit fireside on the new deck takes and take in calming views of West Lakes as the world goes by. In the bistro, new high bars and wide-striped bench seating open the space and provide all sorts of vantage points from which to enjoy a meal. Renovations have set up the renowned watering hole for a whole new lease on life, turning heads in the community and seeing new visitors to the hotel.
