 In the face of the escalating situation we have made the devastating decision to temporarily cease trading.

We do not feel that we can continue to guarantee a good time, and provide a safe environment, while adhering to the necessary social distancing parameters being outlined by our health professionals.

Emails will be monitored during this period.

Thank you for a fantastic 8 years so far.

We will be back with the same great team in the near future.


Georgina, Osman & Rob


The Cottage is a place to meet, to eat, to celebrate. Our leafy courtyard is begging for garden parties, family feasts and long lunches. A charming heritage building, The Cottage has been at the heart of Balmain since late 1800s. In 2012, we moved in. Our food is fresh and generous. Our cocktail bar is one of the Inner West’s best.

Think balmy evenings with good friends and a good bottle. Think bartenders who know your name. Think locally sourced food and ‘I’ll have what she’s having’ moments. Think a little bit vintage and a whole lot of fun. Think, The Cottage.

 With plenty of cosy nooks and crannies, it’s time to settle in.
