Justine Baker, Solotel Group CEO expressed her enthusiasm at being able to open some venues."We’re thrilled to be reopening some of our venues and welcoming back our staff following the successful launch of our take away offerings at Public House Petersham, North Bondi Fish and Chiswick. It’s been a challenging couple of months for everyone and I’m so happy that we can open our doors to the communities we love. At the same time, we acknowledge this is a small step in our rebuild which we believe will take some time and are looking forward to being able to reopen more of our venues when further restrictions ease”.

Matt Moran, co-owner of North Bondi Fish and Chiswick Restaurant expressed his excitement. “I’m so glad we’re able to open our doors to our guests”, says Matt Moran. “It’s been great to have launched takeaway at Chiswick and North Bondi Fish and now to be able to serve 50 guests at each venue is fantastic”.
