Celebrity chef Sean Donovan is looking to create a gastropub venture within the Town Hall Hotel in Fitzroy after current chef Harry Lilai moves on after five years. 

He said he was looking to take the place back to more of a fair dinkum pub.

"I think the pub needs to be a place where you can walk in from the street and get a beer, so I hope to take the Town Hall back closer to its roots,” he said.

The Town Hall Hotel has been extensively refurbished to offer two commercial kitchens, two dining rooms and a converted cellar used for private functions. Harry Lilai is looking to buy a cafe closer to home in Melbourne's west.

Pat Connolly and Will Connolly from Colliers International’s sold the premises on behalf of Lilai.
