Matt Moran has purchased the Rockley Pub. Matt is an Australian chef and restaurateur and the tour de force behind some of Australia’s most celebrated dining establishments. Matt talked on ABC Radio this morning about his plans for the Rockley Pub, which will commence when he takes over ownership in mid July. Matt has in mind to revitalise the pub, offering meals based on freshly prepared, local produce. Matt intends sourcing much of the produce he will use at the pub from local growers and suppliers which will help the whole area.

Matt talked about his future dreams for Rockley which focus on increasing the services offered in the town, like a bakery and a cafe.

Matt has family roots in the area. He owns a small farm out of Rockley and many of his ancestors are buried in the cemetery at Black Springs.
