Chef's Kitchen

Our Story 

Chef Tanya Pearson and Manager Jodi Hayne first started working together at Maverick Bistro in the Mackellar Motel in 2016 when Rhys Gard started Maverick Bistro in Gunnedah after seeing the need for locals and visitors to enjoy dining with a difference in Gunnedah.

Everyone involved and of course, the customers have allowed the Bistro to grow over the last several years.

The Bistro has relocated to 378 Conadilly Street, Gunnedah in January 2021.
