Driving down William Street at Westbury, the Irish history of the town is clear to see.
Though a new family business set to open this month aims to make it clearer still.
The property, located on the corner of William and Lyal streets, has been carefully restored to its former glory after months of research by Hayley and Nick Brazendale – with plenty of hands-on help from her father, Clive.
It was only through this research Mr Brazendale discovered her own Irish history.
In what is really a whole-family effort however, this was only part of their efforts to draw more people in off the Bass Highway.
The full picture involves a cafe, restaurant, and apothecary, with a 60 to 70 person outdoor courtyard for live music and functions ringed by fruit trees, along with a kitchen garden next door.
Cooking and herbal remedy classes will be run and takeaway picnic baskets will be sold.
Though offering a traditional style menu there will be options for all eaters too, says Mrs Brazendale, from serving sugar-free sweets to those with allergic intolerances.
“You can’t go and get a really beautiful creme brulee and not feel guilty about it,” she said.
“We don’t want to turn anybody away.”
In the kitchen is Mrs Brazendale’s sister, Keira, who she describes as a master.
Mrs Brazendale’s sister-in-law, Liz Self, will also play a key role there.
Then there’s mum.
Julie Self, who ran Tasmanian Gourmet Gateaux and Cheesecakes, will take charge on the cakes and sweets.
Clive Self is a horticulturalist and will look after the kitchen garden, growing herbs and tomatoes for the kitchen to start.
“That’s what we grew up with,” Mrs Brazendale said.
The five-year plan is to diversify and expand the different arms of the business enough to purchase a farm.
This would then allow the family to grow even more of their own produce, perhaps even taking on their own butcher.
“You could shear a sheep and have it on the menu that night.”
For now though, the Green Door will open its namesake door on Saturday, September 15 with a set three-course dinner.
Celtic band Black Wattle will play the courtyard – a nod to that rich history.
