Triptych of Cobb & Co Historic Images
History Of

Cobb & Co

From the moment you walk into the courtyard at Cobb and Co Boutique Hotel, the sense of history is palpable. From the cobbled courtyard where the horses were stabled in the days of stagecoaches, with original style staircases leading up to the rooms, to the warm ambiance of the restaurant and the upstairs loft which was used to store fodder once upon a time, we combine modern conveniences while retaining a heritage feel with good old fashioned service.

About Us

The former Mudgee couple, with international credentials in the worlds of business and dining, have returned from overseas as the new owners of the town’s iconic Cobb & Co Court Boutique Hotel and its associated restaurant, Cade Kitchen & Bar. Ian and Judy, who owned the Mudgee region’s historic Oakfield Estate on Lue Road, have returned to Australia from the American city of New Orleans, Louisiana. They both have an extensive array of credentials to their new venture.

Prior to his retirement in 2001, Ian was a non-board director of Westfield and Judy was Westfield General Manager-Food. Judy who is a dual Australian-US citizen, began her food career in New Orleans by setting up and managing the largest custom catering business in a city known for its culinary excellence. She has catered to many celebrities including Frank Sinatra, The Rolling Stones and former President George Bush Snr. Before their move to America Ian and Judy created businesses in both Mudgee and Balmain that combined dining with fine hand-made chocolates.
