About The side Door

The Side Door Restaurant Bunbury was born from an opportunity delivered at the right time, in the right place. Husband and wife team Chris and Kathy lead a dedicated team which offers a truly hospitable place to bring family and friends together in a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere. Chris has world class training and experience in kitchens around the world.  Kathy’s background of customer service ensures your dining experience will be second to none.

Our Passion

Our seasonally changing menu allows us to enjoy and showcase the wonderful local produce and wines the South West and Western Australia has to offer. We are proud to be able to offer and share the focus on local family owned and operated small businesses with our customers.

Our ethos is for quality, simple, classic, made from scratch dishes.  This is our passion and our vision – it is the platform that makes The Side Door Restaurant Bunbury so special.

We know everyone will get as much pleasure from the daily enjoyment of the eternally wonderful trinity of good food, good wine and good company as we do – every time they come to dine with us.

Chef Chris Gourley

Ever since he was 12 years old, I knew I wanted to be a chef. I have a great passion for food and still enjoy my time in the kitchen now, as much as I did back then. I have lived, trained and worked around the world and love to constantly update my knowledge of food. Not only is variety the spice of life, but it also keeps my passion for food alive. The food I have experienced around the world I love to showcase in my frequently changing menus along with traditional favourites.

Let my lifelong passion for food become your next memorable meal.

Our Philosophy

We love the way food can bring us together.
We love that food can invoke and make memories.
We love exploring new foods, ingredients, and recipes.
We look forward to sharing this with you.

Kathy Gourley

Kathy is the sparkle that makes your day when you arrive at The Side Door Bunbury. Kathy takes care of the little extra touches from your drink being at just the right temperature to a grind or two of black pepper, from her impressive pepper grinder, to put the finishing touch to your meal.

With an extensive background in customer service, Kathy takes great delight in running the front of house.

One of Kathy’s most favourite passions is being able to enjoy and taste test the new creation that Chris is trialing as he decides on the new dishes for the seasonal menu changes.
