The history of the Macquarie Arms Hotel starts when Governor Lachlan Macquarie gave a large allotment of land to Mr Richard Fitzgerald – on the condition he build an Inn at least 2 stories high.

From the worn stone steps at the front and side entrance to the magnificent colonial balcony overlooking the Old Windsor main thoroughfare George Street, this pub screams HISTORY! Some of the well refurbished rooms and staircases would not be out of place in a museum.
