The Mitta Pub, A Pop­u­lar Des­ti­na­tion

North East Living Magazine - - News -

For­merly known as The Lau­rel, the Mitta Pub was built in the mid to late 1800’s. It was orig­i­nally a weath­er­board build­ing owned by Bar­nett and Dou­glas. Left aban­doned for years, it be­came a derelict build­ing for cat­tle to wan­der around and chil­dren to play in.

Ge­orge Lewis came along and took up The Lau­rel again with the front brick por­tion of the pub be­ing erected by Mrs. El­iz­a­beth Craig in 1906.

The Lau­rel was one of three pubs to be built in Mitta. The Junc­tion, which was later de­stroyed by fire and the Bridge Ho­tel, which was de-li­censed in 1949 and then be­came a guest­house. All three pubs were built in an era of cat­tle­men, log­gers and min­ers.

The Lau­rel or Mitta Pub to this day is a place to visit.

The Mitta Pub is one of the North East’s true iconic wa­ter­ing holes. Pro­vid­ing a great des­ti­na­tion for a day out all year round. Warm and cosy open fires for the win­ter months and cool moun­tain breezes for the sum­mer. An ex­ten­sive wine list and hearty meals keep the at­mos­phere inviting and pro­vide a com­fort­ing stop all year.

The beau­ti­ful din­ing room over­look­ing Snowy Creek pro­vides the per­fect spot for en­joy­ing a few cold beers or glass of North East Vic­to­ria’s lo­cal wines.

The pub of­fers good qual­ity fa­cil­i­ties while keep­ing much of its his­toric charm.
