Lockdown ends – The Far Post OPEN

Final photo from field October 5

The redevelopment of the Manly Warringah Football Club (Cromer Park Clubhouse) is complete and will reopen on Friday 15 October, following the relaxation of the NSW Government restrictions.


“The Far Post” will open at 3pm on Friday (15 October) and be open 7 days a week from 3pm to offer all of the Northern Beaches Football community a true “Home of Football” – a place to relax, gather and enjoy a meal or a drink where football will always be king on the TV and the chatter.


The Club is situated at Cromer Park (101 South Creek Rd, Dee Why)


The club will be open 7 days, has a fully stocked bar, draft beer on tap, café and a pub-style bistro “The Far Post” that will serve full dinner from Thursday to Saturday nights with bar snacks on a Sunday afternoon.


It has indoor and outdoor seating with a 200sqm covered deck with lights, sound system and heaters looking out over the Cromer Park No. 1 field


There is also an integrated sound system (inside and outside), AV facilities, a 65 inch TV with Sport streaming subscriptions and a TV projector to be able to watch major sporting events on a huge screen.


Below are the initial opening hours, which could be subject to change depending on how we go in the early stages.


Monday               3pm to 7.30pm                 Café and bar
Tuesday              3pm to 7.30pm                 Café and bar
Wednesday         3pm to 7.30pm                 Café and bar
Thursday             3pm to 9pm                      Café and bar
Friday                  3pm to 10pm                    Café and bar.  Bistro from 5pm
Saturday              3pm to midnight               Café and bar.  Bistro from 5pm
Sunday                3pm to 8pm                      Café and bar.  Bar snacks from 4.30pm


For years, decades for some people, we have been craving a Home of Football and a modern Licenced Club to be able to gather as a football community.


Everything is in place. Now all we need is to utilise the facility.


Grab your team mates and friends and head down to The Far Post.


The current relaxation of the NSW Government COVID-19 restrictions allow the Manly Warringah Football Club to have 72 seated patrons inside and 90 people on the covered outdoor deck, with standing up permitted while drinking.


Profits from the Manly Warringah Football Club will be put back into football on the Northern Beaches through the Manly Warringah Football Association, it’s 17 Clubs and Manly United Football Club.


We hope to see you at The Far Post from Friday 15 October.
