OPENINg MAY 2019

Ben Devlin, owner and chef, grew up in Byron Bay and was drawn back to work in the Northern Rivers in 2015 where he has since re-connected to the region, its people, and produce.

At Pipit Restaurant, he and wife Yen, will celebrate the coastal lifestyle with a focus on wood-fired methods, and local flavours that aim to surprise and delight

Dining inspired by its coastal setting

Menu

Coastal dining to us means that our space and menus are light, casual, and relaxed. We think vegetables, fruits, and seafood are the stars in our region.

We aim for bold, balanced flavours and hope to surprise you with things you might not have tried before or can only find in this part of the world. Our menu will be centred on wood-fired cooking, and our drinks menu will be based on low intervention wines and handmade beverages.

FOOD sustainability

We want to play our small part in supporting more sustainable food systems, and choose to:

  • Support local farmers and producers

  • Not to serve hoofed animals (beef, pork, lamb, goat)

  • Support the AMCF Good Fish Guide in buying our seafood

  • Minimise wastage by actively looking for more creative ways to use all of our products
