The hotel's federation structure was completed in 1904 by William Turnball & Sons, builders from West Wallsend. It was commissioned by Robert Drurie, a Draper at West Wallsend who purchased Lot 20 Holmesville from Joseph Holmes in 1903. Architectural features include a magnificent wrought iron lacework balcony panels of which bear a foundry stamp of 1899. The exterior has remained the same since construction with the exception of the addition of tiles to the front facade around 1914, and the loss of the terracotta pot from the chimney on the Northern end of building. This pot was dislodged in the Pasha Bulker storm of 2007. The original staircase remains, as do the metal ceilings.
A foodie’s haven, there is a focus on locally grown, fresh ingredients changing according to the season. With young families and professionals as neighbours, owners Michael and Travis have created a truly welcoming vibe. Whatever the occasion, the Holmesville Hotel is the perfect place to dine. Enjoy a modern Australian menu, pub favourites and signature dishes from Schnitzel to Lasagne. All meals are still available as takeaway if you’d prefer, with the exception of your nightly specials.
