Function dining options are numerous, personally tailored to you and seasonally adjusted with our ever-changing a la carte menu. Prices are per head, and start from $45. Anything you desire from our menu can be included in your function package, and if there is something particular in our repertoire you have seen or tried before and would like to have included on your menu please let us know.

Beverages can be chosen from our extensive wine list prior to the event, or ordered by guests during the event. They are charged either by consumption or as agreed beforehand as part of a package. We have an in-house sommelier who is available to consult with planning or matching drink choices with your menu.

All dietary requirements and comfort issues can be observed with prior knowledge, and the tailoring of your menu to suit your requirements is integral to the service we enjoy providing. Our staff are trained to understand allergies and other dietary requirements, ensuring that all our guests receive the same level of care and enjoyment.

Fire & Grill

In addition to our fabulous new kitchen, we utilise our hand built wood fire and wood grill to cook ethically sourced Meat, Poultry, Fish and Vegetables.The grill can be utilised specifically for courtyard functions where we provide a dedicated chef to prepare, cook, and serve your group.

Offsite Events

The Commoner Kitchen is capable of providing most dishes on our menu for pick-up to cater for your external event. This includes our house baked bread, and we are happy to design dishes to suit a standing group if required. Our Rib Crib portable grill is also available for hire as a package including the produce required, and a chef to set up, cook and serve.

The Commoner Events

The Commoner regularly stages in-house events showcasing particular ingredients, collaborations, beverages, or seasonal themes, which we publicise via our website, newsletter and social media. We also offer a number of pre-arranged event packages that have proven popular with groups. There are a number of options, and we can tailor any event to suit budget, size, theme, or time constraints.

Fire & Grill

Learn to prepare, cook, and serve your choice of meat, poultry or fish (or a combination) in our hand built wood oven and/or grill (season dependent). Under the professional care of one of our chefs, your group will learn the secrets to creating a mouth watering wood fired meal and then feast on the resulting mouth-watering goodness. Includes all meats and sides, and can include matched wines.


Using our current ‘Feed Me’ menu or your choices from the a la carte menu, our chef and sommelier will work together, and with you, to deliver a perfectly matched dining extravaganza to your group.
