Merivale Continues to Eat Up Sydney's Pub Market, Acquires Woollahra's Hotel Centennial

It's the second pub the group has bought in so many weeks.

At this point, we should really just be running an updated list of which Sydney pubs Merivale now owns. In the past six months alone, the hospitality group has acquired Marrickville's Vic On The ParkThe Colloroy on the northern beaches, The Tennyson on Botany Road and — just two weeks ago — Bondi's Royal Hotel. The latest one to be tacked onto the end? Woollahra's Hotel Centennial.

As far as we know the Oxford Street pub was not up for sale — it had just appointed new executive chef Tom Deadman in October and launched a summer series last week.

Merivale will take over the venue from December 12 and bring in its two chefs from up the road: Danielle Alvarez from Fred's and Ben Greeno from The Paddington. The pair will head up the venue's dining room and bar menu.

With the Centennial and the Royal — which is set to be the group's first Bondi venue — Merivale seems very much se to spread its brand across the eastern suburbs. And, well, every inner-city suburb in Sydney.
