Sir George Jugiong
Sir George Jugiong was formerly known as the (The Sir George Tavern)
Re-Opened 2ns January 2017
Located in the riverside village of Jugiong, The Sir George will offer a unique dining and accommodation experience. Built in 1852, the historic venue is currently being restored to create a warm and relaxed space where old meets new ... with a boutique bar, restaurant and artisan bakery.
A philosophy of simplicity and authenticity will underpin all that is The Sir George – from the menu of locally sourced Riverina produce to the beer garden that feels like your own.
One minute off the Hume highway between Sydney and Melbourne, The Sir George will be a place for young and old to enjoy a great coffee, a cold brew or a memorable meal by the Murrumbidgee. A good old fashioned country pub that will exceed your expectations.
"The most prominent building in Jugiong is the distinctive Sir George Tavern which stands at the end of the main street. An Irish settler, John Phillip Sheahan, built the first Sir George Tavern on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River in 1845 but it was washed away in the floods of 1852.
Undeterred by this setback John Sheahan decided to build something that would last forever. He brought stonemasons from Ireland and built the current Sir George Tavern which opened for business a few years later. It is a monument to permanence with the walls being over half a metre thick. That permanence extends to the Sheahan family who still ran the pub until 2014, making it the oldest family-run hotel in Australia."
