The Family Hotel was established in 1860, and has served the people of the Hunter and the surround since that time. The Hotel has always been more than just a Pub to locals. During the Maitland floods in 1955, the Family Hotel sheltered numerous families who were left homeless.

Since undergoing new ownership in 2017, changes have been made to bring the old Hotel back to its glory days. Many loyal and new customers of commended both of the new owners, of the job they have done restoring the overall experience at the Hotel.

Within the historic building, you’ll find delicious food, which can be washed down by a selection of drinks available at the Dusty Miner Bar. We hope to see you soon!

The Family Hotel restaurant serves traditional pub food. The food will leave your taste-buds wanting more, but your stomach won’t be able to take more. We have meals from Schnitzels to Steaks, and everything in between.
