Robertson Public House
From Pioneers to Providores…
The floorboards creak with stories from yesteryear and while it has undergone numerous name changes since it was built in 1887, the place affectionately known as ‘Robbo Pub’ has been the beating heart of our quaint town for well over a century. As one of the oldest all timber buildings remaining in NSW it is a custodian of history and, as a watering hole, resting place and social hub, it has shaped and reflected the hard work and dreams and of a resourceful and resilient community.
There are important snippets – and missing pieces – when it comes to the establishment’s rich history, from the first licensee, Moss Vale-born George Schlaadt, to the owner whose friendly dog Winston was often found soaking up the sun in the western bar.
Now known as a destination for discerning diners and an institution for weddings and events, Robertson Public House and Kitchen proudly continues as a spiritual home of the Southern Highlands. One thing that will forever remain is its friendly atmosphere and egalitarian nature – you’re welcome whether you’re sporting muddy boots, or a string of pearls. Just bring a warm smile.
Every Sunday from 11:30am | $28pp.
