You're wondering what the heck is taking so long for us to open our doors? 

You're wondering, where the "F" is my workshop? 

You're most likely thinking "hurry up people!".

And you'd be totally right in thinking all of the above...

Our most recent delays have largely been due to a slow, frustrating and arduous process in having water re-connected to our premises. It's taken eight months, many phone calls, forms, phone calls, more forms, redesigns, emails phone calls and well... you get the picture.

We've made the most of this period, Nick is ready to pounce on preparing and pickling for his exciting new menu (don't worry, the ramen is back plus some!), Dan has his new coffee machine and beer taps waiting to pour you a latte or Young Henry's cider, Dimi has been baking up a storm ready to roll out copious amounts sweetness, Adrian wants to stop building our fit-out and start building motorcycles and I have an empty office awaiting warm bodies to help me spread the great things to come from within RSW... it hurts how close we are.

One thing we know, we're really proud of this place. A building over 100 years old with a community awaiting its access. We've built a lot of it ourselves with the help of great people volunteering their time and skills.
