A restaurant housed in one of Canberra’s oldest buildings is on the market.

The Green Herring Restaurant at Gold Creek is a 150-year-old slab hut that was transported to Canberra in 1970 and has been serving up lunch and dinner for 30 years, according to allhomes.

Gordon Scott of Scott Property Consultants’ Gordon Scott said the restaurant, which can hold up to 64 patrons, comprises a dining area, kitchen, restrooms, storeroom and an al fresco option. The building still maintains its original construction materials but has been refurbished internally.

“The Green Herring is somewhat of an institution in the Canberra restaurant scene and has always enjoyed solid patronage,” Mr Scott told allhomes.

“People love the Australiana feel of the building. It’s the heritage that draws them in as much as the highly awarded cuisine.

“If the new owners love creating fine food experiences and enjoy people, they will find a welcoming new home at The Green Herring.”
