EAT & DRINK // Open For Business

As restrictions are easing for the food & bevvie industry, we are all eager to find out who is open, who is shut, and who can serve us a meal on a plate.

Well, it's still a tad complicated. NSW is at Step 1 of the Australian Government's 3-Step Framework For A COVID-safe Australia. That means Southern Highlands outlets can currently open and seat 10 patrons at one time as long as they maintain an average density of 4 square metres per person, and food courts are to remain closed to seated patrons.

Here is the list of local food & bev outlets and the status of their trading hours. Many may remain closed, stick to takeaway and delivery until restrictions ease further, and some may decide on a combination of these.

We're updating this list constantly and working on keeping it as current as we can. Please check back as the list is growing daily.



We strongly suggest getting in touch with the outlet before heading out to ensure they are open and to reseve a seat. Trading hours may also look a little diffferent at the moment...
