Discover Hamilton's casual style beer garden
If you’ve ever had a beer at the Greenroof Hotel (that’s the old pub on Tudor St in Hamilton) you’ll remember it as being an old school family-run hotel. If you go for a beer today, what you’ll find is a new personality and something pretty unique to the Newcastle pub scene, meatballs!
Walking into the bar area, at first glance there’s not a drastic difference, some obvious additions jump out like the industrial-style light fittings that hang over the beer taps, quirky wallpaper, and schmicko new bar bench. Take a closer look and it’s the little details that have brought new character to this old timer and turned it into something fresh.
Walking beyond the bar is where things get interesting and a whole lot different. Firstly it’s all been opened up, walls knocked down, creating a dining booth area that pays tribute to some other old-timers. Images of rock legends the Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, and Cher get their own booth space, and plaques are added for those who like their trivia.
Continuing into the beer garden there is wood and brick decking and an open kitchen window that looks into the kitchen.
Whilst we may have had a bit of a soft spot for the old place, we have to admit that we love the new one whether it be for a quiet meal and a couple of beers, some bingo on the bar, or an all-nighter.
