OUR STORY

 

Shellharbour is our favourite little corner of the world. It is our very own sanctuary away from the chaos, that we at Central Hotel are proud to call home. We are passionate about giving our home a vibrant pub destination.

Located in Shellharbour’s city centre, Central Hotel overlooks beautiful Lake Illawarra. Built in 2012, we are a young pub with a spring in our step! We are all about creating excuses for people to escape the everyday and come together to celebrate the good things in life and the moments that matter. We offer a little something for everyone over our two expansive floors of entertainment.

Whatever brings you through our doors; a thirst for a great beer, a relaxed dinner with your loved ones, watching footy with the boys, your favourite live act, a milestone celebration or a serendipitous drop in, we want you to feel welcome, to relax and have fun in good company!

Central Hotel Shellharbour offers two fantastic restaurants, Cantina Mexican and The Bistro, click on the images below for more information and menus.
