A lovely location: The Elmwood Trading Co.

A home away from home describes the fabulous warm feel and relaxed vibe of this switched up gastro pub. The Elmwood Trading Co fits up to 50 and is the perfect spot when tying the knot, or for having a pre- or post-wedding party.


The restaurant is French chic with a cheeky twist, and the large bar area with wooden tables and polished concrete floor leads to a sheltered courtyard.

Boogie all night with licence until 1am for functions.

“We always make a fuss of hen’s night groups too, and kids are most welcome,” says owner Marty Fuller.

The broad menu has something for weddings, birthdays, meetings, seminars, anniversaries and fundraisers, with à la carte, set menus, buffets or drinks and nibbles.

Chef Henry Liang has been with Marty for 13 years, since their Trevino days. Trained in metropolitan cities from Mumbai to Dubai, fusion cuisine – and steak – is his penchant.

Just great value fare, cooked skillfully.

“We have a good selection of wines and beers, including my favourite, King’s Bastard, an elegant Marlborough Chardonnay. We’re absolutely flexible to tailor-make any function. Tell us what you want, and we’ll do it,” says Marty. After 40 years in hospitality, he’s experienced everything.

There are great parking spaces, great atmosphere, and community patronage at The Elmwood, “Where everyone knows your name.”

Come down to The Elmwood Trading Co. at 1 Norman’s Road, Strowan. Phone (03) 355 5345 or visit the website.
