Refreshed vision to promote Fishos as new ‘go-to venue’

NEW management, a new menu and a new revitalisation plan aim to have Coffs Harbour Deep Sea Fishing Club become "the go-to venue" on the Coffs Coast.

From tomorrow, the club will be fully operational thanks to the support of North Coast Hotel Group, opening at 10am until late seven days a week.

There was an over- whelming response by members and the commu- nity to the club's trial opening with food service at the weekend.

North Coast Hotel Group partner Harry Barry said the revamp was for the club's members who fought tirelessly to keep the club afloat.

"The mission is to give them a better facility than what they had before, a better food offering, a better beer offering along with a home they can call theirs forever," Mr Barry said.

Lunch and dinner will be served seven days a week, and breakfast will be trialled on Sundays from 7am.

You won't be seeing the usual chicken parma at the club says manager of food and functions, Anthony Chouri, who aims to up the ante on the Coffs food scene.

"We're going a level up from the old school pub feels, it's going to be pretty contemporary ... We're going to try and give the whole bistro a Melbourne and Sydney feel," Mr Chouri said.

There are plans to eventually introduce a craft beer bar and brew the club's own beer on site.
