Sixpenny was founded in March 2012 and is named after the sixpence restaurants that operated in the late 1800s in Australia. Located at the top end of Stanmore Village, Sixpenny is housed in a historic building on Percival Road which was erected in 1907.
Chefs Daniel Puskas and Aaron Ward lead the kitchen in utilising local suppliers, growers and producers to focus on creating a narrative around all things that make-up Australia.
While we can’t enjoy Sixpenny’s dining room at the moment, they have brought back their general store and bakery open every weekend. Their menu can be found on their Instagram page, @sixpenny_au. You can also pre-order on their website here.
