We are a neighbourhood eatery offering creative robust food, craft beer, carefully selected wine and great coffee in Hayes Paddock — the heart of Hamilton East.

Conceived on the notion that every good community needs a common hub — we created Hayes Common with the intention that it could be your home away from home. Start your day with a leisurely breakfast and coffee by Atomic Coffee Roasters; enjoy lunch overlooking the river; drop into for a bite and a beer in the afternoon; or linger for the evening over dinner.

We love good honest flavours and seasonal food — our menu is updated with the seasons making use of our kitchen garden and we use local suppliers where we can. All of our meats and eggs are free-range to ensure the best quality and flavour.

Our dedicated team are a diverse bunch with a common goal of making sure you have a great time. We are true professionals and creatives who care about this industry.
