Here to serve you
Jamie - Publican
“Hospitality is something I’ve always been drawn to and I’ve been in the hotel game now as a publican for around ten years. Prior to owning Edward’s Tavern, I owned a pub in Apollo Bay on the Great Ocean Road. We moved to Wodonga for family reasons and we really love the community here who have really embraced Eddie’s to make it their favourite local.
“Standards are very important to us and we like to offer the best service and pub meals in Albury Wodonga. People just keep coming back for our friendly atmosphere and great value meals – in particular, the steak and parmi nights are very popular.
“We are continually improving and modernising our facilities. We have just replaced all the chairs in the dining area and in 2018 are renovating our kitchen. Our kids room is really popular and it allows parents to relax knowing their children are safe and having a good time too.
“The open fire places are a huge drawcard in winter as there is nothing else like it in Albury Wodonga.”
Bruce - Head Chef
“I’ve been at Eddies for over 5 years now but I’ve had 30 years in the hospitality industry. What I like about my job as Head Chef is the freedom to experiment with different flavours and being able to see people enjoy something I’ve created. I also enjoy being a part of our regular patrons’ lives – whether it is for family functions or celebrations or just a regular meal during the week.
“Edwards Tavern is an open, warm and friendly place with a very relaxed atmosphere. We cater for a broad cross section of people – families, singles, couples, groups, tradies – you name it! We give them a great experience so they leave happy!
“The pub is constantly developing. We have just replaced the chairs in the dining area of the bistro – high backs and soft seats – very comfortable so I’m told! In the new year, we are renovating the kitchen. There is always something planned as we like to maintain our high standards and meet the expectations of our patrons.
“It’s hard for me to choose a favourite meal because I love them all! Seriously though, I try to cater for our patrons’ tastes so we have a range of traditional pub style meals plus something for more adventurous diners.
“Eddies becomes a part of you, if you let it!”
Mick - Bar Manager
“I’ve been the bar manager at Eddies for 14 months. Previously to this, I owned bars and restaurants in Thailand so I’ve been in the hospitality game for a long time.
“What I love most about hospitality is the interaction with a wide range of people that I get on a daily basis. Our patrons here are more like mates as we have many regulars and you get to know them really well. I also love the family atmosphere and in particular, our open fires in winter - there is nothing else like it in Albury Wodonga – they just create such a warm and welcoming ambience on a winter’s day and are a huge drawcard.
“I reckon the best meal at the Tavern is the Scotch Fillet. I just love a good steak and Bruce and his team cook it to perfection!”
Ash - Bar and Bistro
“I’m one of the bistro and bar staff at Eddies and I’ve been here for around 3 years now. My first ever job was in hospitality in Gippsland where I worked in a busy hotel doing weddings and functions, as well as in the bistro.
“I just love it at Eddies! The customers and my manager (is he reading this!?) … and the warm and welcoming atmosphere. The building itself is like no other in the region. Our open fires in winter are renowned as are our high ceilings and timber beams which give the space such a relaxed feeling.
“Hmmmm……which meal do I think is the best? I can’t choose between the calamari or the quiche. Why not have both!”
