Today we remember the fire at Donovans on the evening of Sunday 24 August 2014.

Following this traumatic event we took the opportunity to embrace change and identify new possibilities at Donovans. Reviewing how we do things at Donovans and why.

What remains constant however is our manifesto: ‘Donovans is a place to call home. A place to belong, feel welcome and create special memories’.

We hope you enjoy this wonderful video produced by Smudge Eats.

    Whilst we are safely locked down on the west coast we miss the opportunity to visit our eastern seaboard friends and family and hope one day soon we can all be as one once more.

    Stay safe and strong, your old buddy and waiter!
