Iconic Sydney Pub – Ettamogah Hotel – Kellyville Ridge Sydney
Ettamogah Hotel is a large Aussie-themed hotel named after a pub born in the vivid imagination of Ken Maynard when he drew cartoons for “The Australasian Post” magazine from 1959 until the magazine closed in 1997.
On the left-hand side of Windsor Road, the distinctive outward-bulging walls with an old truck parked carelessly on the roof is a sure guide to turn left and park in front of the modern Ettamogah Pub opened in 1987.
There are a few bars inside the Ettamogah Hotel. The Ettamogah Sports Bar has 16 different beers and ciders on tap and a platinum TAB Area with Keno and Adjoining VIP gaming lounge.
The Deck Bar is a large indoor / outdoor setting popular with families on weekends. A recent addition to this area is a rock climbing wall which kids seem to love. Drinks can be ordered without leaving the kids and when we were there several tables had 3 generations laughing and enjoying meals from the nearby bistro.
The bistro has a tremendous range of meals, snacks and sandwiches. Oysters, entrees, burgers, grills, salads, schnitzels, chicken, seafood, pasta, Asian flavours and a good range of desserts. Great pub food at reasonable prices and quick service. The bistro is open for lunch Mon – Sat from 12pm – 2.30pm and Sunday 12pm – 5.30pm. The bistro is always open for dinner Sun – Wed from 5.30pm – 10.30pm, Thurs – Sat 5.30pm – 11.30pm.
The bistro also has kids meals for $10 and lunch specials for $12 – Fish and Chips, Prawn Twisters, Schnitzel or Bangers and Mash. There is also the BIG Meal special for $17 – Rump, Bacon, Sausage, Fried Egg, hash brown, chips and salad.
Recently renovated with a multi-million dollar update has helped make this iconic and distinctive pub a popular ‘local’ for the surrounding suburbs and management has obviously decided to make the place very family friendly. Good Fun for Good Business! They even have a games arcade for small and big kids to enjoy.
Winner in 2014 of Best Family Friendly Hotel in NSW from the Australian Hotel Association.
