Paul Kelly Design drafted an entirely new business model, floor plan and interior design concept.

The Chillie Group kept the hotel open and trading in all areas during the process of refurbishment by staging the works to allow minimum amount of disruption to the clientele.

Martin Secheny, Director and Licencee said "The build process was exceptional- Paul and Graeham from The Chillie Group knocked the whole job over within 12 weeks and came in well under budget. There were no unexpected cost blowouts along the way and everything was done professionally with a premium finish throughout. I can't thank these guys enough."

The Oaks Hotel - Signature Renovation by Paul Kelly Design

Total project cost – 5.2 million – completed in 29 weeks over 2 stages


After a long fought tender process, our proposed staging & construction program to complete the works was instrumental in eventually winning this project. Breaking up the works into 2 stages enabled us to create a temporary kitchen in the stage 2 area ensuring food service was maintained to the beer garden & the rest of the hotel throughout the renovation process.


One of the main challenges we had to overcome was restricted site access. Careful planning & co-ordination was required to ensure safe removal & delivery of materials including closing Military rd for a couple of crane lifts


Stage 1 - Total strip & refit over 900m2. Works included new centralized main kitchen with service lift, Oaks Butchery & Servery, Main Bar with cellar upgrade, John Mellion Bar & Terrace, Extensive new Joinery, Wall Paneling & Banquette seating, Climate controlled wine display, 3 new fireplaces, Feature ceilings & lighting rigs, New Roof & AC plant & Grease Arrestor.

Stage 2 - Garden Pavillion - Works included new Bathrooms, Function Kitchen, Function Bar & Pavillion, and new AC Plant deck which involved the largest mobile crane in Sydney & nervous lift over the Oak Tree & Beer Garden.


This project was a great achievement for all involved from start to finish.



Churchills American Diner

Refurbishment and update of existing bistro to tie in with the new American food menu.


Food For Fuel is the concept driving the design for this funky diner. The design aims to create a lively dining environment by pairing an all new American style food menu with a vintage industrial garage interior.


Churchills Sports Bar

New gaming and alfresco gaming rooms. 


The design takes its cue from the existing curved structures throughout the space, reinforcing the form rather than contradicting it. The timber batten screens not only possesses sculptural qualities but also provide obscure separations between the gaming room and the rest of the pub.
