Welcome to Applejack Hospitality & Consultancy, a boutique restaurant and bar group, founded by Ben Carroll and Hamish Watts in 2011.

Combining 35 years of experience and expertise in the industry, Ben and Hamish decided to open their first venue, Bondi Hardware. The success of their first venture inspired them to open five new venues within five years. Their goal has been achieved, with six venues in 5 years with The Botanist, SoCal, The Butler, Della Hyde and Endeavour Tap Rooms all offering unique, dining and drinking experiences across Sydney. Applejack Hospitality also offer partnership and consultancy services, launching Hacienda with the Pullman Hotels in 2016 and currently working with Veriu Hotels.
