And just like that, summer school holidays are done on the Coffs Coast! While the world gets back into the swing of things, we here at Donovan’s Surf Club Restaurant and Bar are looking forward to the year ahead. Here’s a sneak peek of what we’re up to in the next couple of months!

Earlier Opening Hours on Saturdays

We’re very excited to announce we will be opening from 7.30am on Saturdays for coffee and our grab-and-go selection! Tie in your caffeine fix with your run in the park, dog walk along the beach, or a quick fix before the kids’ sport. Our regular brekkie menu starts at 7.45am, but we know how important it is to get your hands on a Botero coffee or Jilly’s tea before you start your day!

Free Private Marquee Hire On Our Island View Deck

Yep, you’re reading that correctly! Book a group of 30 or more in for breakfast or lunch, and let us know that you want the marquee. We’ll book our northern Island View Deck just for you! Our marquee is perfect for all weather, guaranteeing shade and shelter no matter what the weather decides to do. Have your own space away from the crowd and enjoy this glorious time of year on the Coffs Coast. 


Our books are open for 2024 and we’re even taking bookings for 2025 too! We’re proud to offer exclusive use of our beachside venue for one of the best-priced venue hire fees on the Coffs Coast. With Park Beach Reserve right next door, the beach right next to us, and ample parking, you don’t even need to travel far to have your dream wedding. We’ll work with you to create the perfect menu, and our relationships with local wedding vendors mean the only thing that will be hitched on your special day is you! Get in touch with our Wedding Producer Jason to start planning your wedding now. 

Community Groups

Are you part of a community group that meets regularly? We’re proud to host a number of local groups, whether it’s for a monthly meeting, weekly craft group, or even just your fortnightly catch-up with the girls. We offer perpetual bookings and love looking after our regulars! If you’re part of a group that meets regularly, ask us about how we can facilitate your needs. We offer a range of delicious catering, plenty of drink options (including alcoholic), and ample space.
