Beer to flow again at iconic pub

The Free Press (Corowa) - - NEWS -

It’s great to hear the Royal Ho­tel in Corowa’s main street will soon be thriv­ing again in­stead of sit­ting empty.

The new pub­li­can Michael Newn­ham cer­tainly has some great ideas for the place that will no doubt be sup­ported by the town – karaoke and a chil­dren’s play area to name a few.

The his­tor­i­cal build­ing de­serves the at­ten­tion it is set to get when ren­o­va­tions get un­der­way in com­ing weeks, but it’s re­fresh­ing to hear the owner plans to keep the coun­try pub look when so many other pubs in small towns are be­ing mod­ernised.

The Free Press looks for­ward to see­ing it take shape over the next three months and re­port­ing on the progress and the open­ing.

No doubt there will be a lot of pleased res­i­dents to have an­other wa­ter­ing hole to visit and a town can never have too many fam­ily-friendly venues.

And the fact that there will be no poker ma­chines in sight could be seen as an­other plus for many peo­ple.

An­other pos­i­tive is that jobs will be cre­ated, both dur­ing the ren­o­va­tion stage and when it starts op­er­at­ing.
