Functions & Catering

Special occasions and business lunches


Bear & Bean is a cafe by day and a beautiful function space by night. Our cafe only operates Monday to Friday leaving the weekends free for Private Functions.
We are a licensed venue for up to 50 guests. We stock a small selection of local beer, wine and cider that we know you’ll love. As a function space we welcome both seated and cocktail style functions, and can accommodate music from an iPod dock, DJ, acoustic artist or small band. With extensive catering experience, we are always very confident in the amount of food and quality of food that comes from our kitchen. Whether it is our famous cheeseboard, mini meals, canapes and/or dessert bars we always ensure our guests are happy! With the addition of a small courtyard to our cafe, it really is a great venue for a daytime function for those wanting to make the most of the nice weather.
