good times since 1899
The family friendly Balgownie Hotel has built up quite a reputation since being built in 1899. With recent renovations, the hotel caters to the broad spectrum of people who work, live and frequent the area.
The family friendly bistro is the hub of the business, with regular weekly specials providing an attractive place for diners to enjoy.
The venue also features a large TAB area which our local punters call home. With weekly entertainment such as trivia and badge draws throughout the week, the public bar is the perfect place to catch up with friends! Drop in for a cold beer and live music on Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons, we've got something for everyone.
If you’re looking for a space for your next function, why not look at our unique function space? The room is situated on level one of the hotel and includes a private bar and balcony. This function room offers a sophisticated and intimate setting, creating the perfect vibe for your special occasion.
The Balgownie Hotel has a strong relationship within the community through our ongoing support of local sporting clubs. We are proud sponsors of the oldest active soccer club in Australia, Balgownie Rangers, founded in 1883.
