Fourth-generation Northern Beaches publicans, the Bayfield family, have ventured out into Sydney's Eastern Suburbs for the first time, taking over the historic Light Brigade Hotel in August, 2015.
The Bayfield Hotel group is a family-run business, established by the late Neville Bayfield, and his sons Wayne and Mark Bayfield. In 2017 the Bayfield family are celebrating their 40th year anniversary since entering the pub game in 1977.
The group boasts an impressive portfolio that includes Dee Why Hotel, Bayfields Liquor Superstore at Dee Why, Bayfields online and most recently, The Light Brigade. They previously owned The Caringbah Hotel, The Belrose Hotel, Newport Mirage and are known most famously for The Newport Arms, which they owned for a remarkable 24 years!
Being a family-run business, family values are always important, with each pub focusing on the community by supporting local sports teams and organisations, as well as being a significant supporter of charitable groups such as the Children's Cancer Institute Australia, raising over $2.7 million to date.

Since the Bayfield family took over The Light Brigade, it has undergone a noticeable transition, evolving it into a venue that's a celebration of Sydney's vibrant pub scene. What was once a humble pub with a sports bar and restaurant has reached new heights with the launch of a new cocktail lounge in the former iconic pink powder room and a new rooftop bar. The Light Brigade has become a four-level establishment, with something for everyone!
