Margaret River's newest establishment: introducing The Common

Locally brewed craft beer and great food with a seafood slant will feature at The Common, Margaret River region’s newest establishment and the third owned and operated by the Margaret River Hospitality Group (MRHG).
The Common is a cool yet comfortable casual bar and bistro located in the Margarets Beach Resort complex in Gnarabup, on the coast of the Margaret River region.
MRHG Managing Director Anthony Janssen, who owned Gnarabar on the same site three years ago, said that he’s been working on The Common’s new $300,000 fit out, making much of the furniture himself from local timbers.
“We’ve built a new alfresco deck that has ocean views and an awning made from recycled timber, a private function room, put in a new ceiling, new lighting, new American Oak floorboards and created another outdoor area – it looks fantastic,” Janssen said.
“The Common will have a craft beer focus – the heroes being the local brews in our beer fonts, and we’ll also offer other Australian and international beer. We’ll also have a small but interesting list of wines by the glass and bottle.
“The Common is ultimately a place for locals to eat, drink and hang out, that welcomes families and visitors alike.
“Come in for a quick drink, a bite to eat, to celebrate a special occasion, or settle in for a long lunch, dinner and beyond, it doesn’t matter – that’s the sort of friendly casual coastal-bar-bistro vibe we’re aiming for.
“We’re really looking forward to reopening what was our first venue and the original vision behind the MRHG – creating quality hospitality experiences,” Janssen said.
MRHG Executive Chef Tony Howell said Andy Foulsham would head the kitchen team at The Common.
“Andrew is young gun of a chef and one I have huge confidence in him as head chef for The Common,” Howell said.
“We’ve worked together for the past three years or so and we’re both excited to be dishing up great local seafood and other bistro favourites with a rolling menu that will take advantage of local seasonal produce,” Howell said.
Janssen said that he has already taken function bookings at The Common and is excited to grow this side of the business.
The function spaces cater for up to 200 people in the bistro area and 100 cocktail-style in the separate function room.
The Common is scheduled to open in early August. It will be open seven days per week from 4pm Monday to Friday, and from 12pm on weekends in off peak season, and will be open seven days per week from 12pm in peak season.

Margaret River Hospitality Group owns and operates Morries, The Common (opening in August), White Elephant Beach Café (reopening in September with a new enclosed area), Barefoot Beach Weddings, a catering company and has a new venue in development in Dunsborough.
Partners of the Margaret River Hospitality Group are entrepreneur Anthony Janssen, hospitality expert Alex Brooks and award-winning chef Tony Howell.
