The Common

Food and Drink By The Gnarabar Beach.

About Us

By the beach in Margaret River, The Common is a cool and casual bar and bistro that specialises in local craft beer, offers ‘Swings’ wine on tap and good honest food.

Esteemed executive chef Tony Howell has created tempting menu with dishes designed with quality local produce in mind. The set menus for functions can be tailored to suit all tastes and budgets – from cocktail-style canapés to four-course sumptuous meals in the private terrace, also known as The Common Room.

The warm inviting coastal vibe makes it the perfect venue for pre-wedding drinks, birthday celebrations, special family get togethers, and of course, Christmas parties.

Inside, there’s a choice of spaces to suit your function – from group bookings large or small to private dining. The Common can cater for 10 to 200 guests.

Outside, The Common Deck is 80 square metres, has ocean views, and offers shade by way of a huge permanent market umbrella. A recycled wood awning will eventually shade the area as the coastal wisteria grows.
