AMBERMERE INN
– EST. 1845

 

Situated on 6 acres at the western foothills of the Blue Mountains overlooking Mt York, Ambermere Inn is one of the regions most iconic buildings with a rich & colourful history.  Originally built & licensed as The Rose Inn in 1845 by Joseph Collits (son of Pierce Collits - first innkeeper over the Blue Mountains) who held the license from 1845 - 1848 followed by James Sherringham, Thomas Markwell & Edward Field until 1873 when the property was purchased by T.H.Neale the Hartley police magistrate.  In the 1860s the Inn held the valuable coaching contract with Cobb & Co whose coaches ran from Sydney to Bathurst twice a week. It was a successful Inn for 28yrs (1845 - 1873) & held high social significance as well as catering for the traveller. In the 1920s it was transformed into a guest-house run by Miss Mawbey & was the beginning of the renaming that we know today as Ambermere.

 

Purchased in the Late 1990s & re opened to the public in 2010 by current innkeeper Fiona Richardson, Ambermere Inn has recently undergone a sympathetic restoration to reflect its grass roots. Our vision today is to bring people together & rediscover old traditions through food. We play homage to the local grower, brewer & winemaker in our Bistro along with our store Mere which offers a selection of local & regionally sourced products.
