The Tambrey Tavern in Karratha in the Pilbara region, one of the north west’s largest pub and retail liquor outlets, has been re-listed given growing market confidence.

It joins Pilbara's historic Carnarvon Tavern on the market.

The tavern was once owned by former Federal Minister Wilson Tuckey and is alle where he allegedly earned the nickname 'Iron Bar'.

The Tambrey Tavern in Nickol, which generated in excess of $13 million in annual turnover last financial year, has been listed by CBRE Hotels’ Ryan McGinnity and Chloe Mason on behalf of McGrathNicol and the receivers and managers appointed.  

They are offering The Tambrey, which comprises a tavern, bistro and function centre, and an adjoining 850 sqm bottle shop, on a walk in walk out basis.

The pub turns over around $350,000 a month and the bottle shop over $700,000.

Ryan McGinnity said that uncertainty surrounding Liquor Licence restrictions at the time of a 2017 campaign meant Pilbara operators were facing an uncertain trading future. 

These included proposed blanket reforms for the Pilbara that would stop packaged liquor sales on Sundays and place a limit on takeaway alcohol sales at all other times.

“As the proposed restrictions are now ceased within certain venues and localities, liquor owners and operators are able to confidently invest in Northwest towns such as Karratha,” McGinnity noted.  

 

Chloe Mason added that the well-known venue’s trading and future growth would be underpinned by the region’s permanent population, over 23,000, and its increasing FIFO workforce. 

“The recent announcements around the Perdaman Chemicals and Fertilisers ammonia/urea plant in Karratha and the second stage of Chevron’s Gorgon project, which have a combined development spend in excess of $10 billion, are set to bring thousands of new jobs to the Karratha area,” Ms Mason said.
