New capacity regulations

Our New Cheese Rules

These are unprecedented times and as a new business we are doing everything we can to keep our business open serving the community we love. We think cheese rules, so in light of the new government health regulations limiting capacity of venues due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) restrictions, here are our new cheese rules:

  • Our maximum capacity is 8 people
  • We continue to follow the social distancing guidelines and have more than 2 metres between each occupied table.
  • We take bookings for Private Dining. Groups of 6-8 people, no minimum spend, venue cleaned pre & post booking
  • We sell retail cheese, butter, crackers and paste as well as takeaway
  • We ask you to BOOK or CALL 9112 6633 to avoid disappointment


We continue to maintain our already strict hygiene standards including:

  • a full clean of the venue each morning before we open
  • sanitising all tables, chairs, door handles and commonly touched areas regularly during service
  • providing alcohol sanitising wipes to all customers on arrival
  • minimising contact and adhering to social distancing guidelines



Open For Business – The 3 Things We Learnt

This is it! After months of “hard work” tasting a lot of cheese and testing all the wines, we are ready to open our doors. Here are the 3* things we learnt creating our first Fromagerie:

  1. Thornbury folks are awesome

From the locals who would stop, do a double take and sneak a look behind the blinds during fit-out, to the pioneers who signed up for our exclusive previews right through to the love you’re giving us on the ‘gram. Your enthusiasm is contagious.

     2. You’re an adventurous bunch

Over the past couple of weeks we’ve tested your taste buds and introduced new flavour combinations. What we heard back was super encouraging:

“I want it all”, “I trust your recommendation”, “I now like blue cheese!” “Let me try the Orange wine”

     3. Vive la Révolution!

French cheese and wine is proving very popular, we’ve picked up a few French speaking staff and drank countless cups of Cafe Flo’s excellent coffee. Francophiles rejoice, we are building Thornbury’s French Quarter.


We are now officially open for business trading Wednesday through to Sunday from 12pm til late. We can’t wait to show you The Thornbury Fromagerie.

*Full disclosure – we learnt heaps more but 3 is a nice number and we’ve got to get back to looking after the cheese.

Exclusive Preview

Fit-out is complete, staff are hired, glasses are polished and we are putting the final touches on our cheese and wine menu. We are almost ready to open our doors but before we do The Thornbury Fromagerie will be hosting a series of exclusive preview nights.
