The Old Vic Inn are delighted to be celebrating their 110th Birthday next weekend and invite the community to come along and celebrate at the 110 Year Dinner on Saturday 17th November. The current owners Graeme and Alison Beasley have provided this short history on The Old Vic Inn. Formerly the Victoria Hotel first built as a weatherboard pub in 1865, ownership passed to Mr Boyd and a new double story brick building was erected in 1908 anticipating the boom to come with the opening of the railway to Canowindra in 1910.
After this the 1865 weatherboard pub was demolished to make way for further brick extensions. For many years from 1969 to 1995 the Victoria Hotel became the Canowindra Convalescent Hospital.
The building has now returned almost to its original use, having 15 rooms all with their own bathrooms plus a 60-80 seat restaurant with a licensed bar serving beer on tap plus a large selection of very good local wines.
The Beasley family wish to extend an invitation to all to come and celebrate 110 years of this dominant brick building in our street scape on Saturday 17th November. There will be a 3 course meal on offer for $45 per person. The menu includes the following reflecting the eras of the building:
To start fresh damper and butter, entrees include home made terrine with tomato relish, twice cooked pork belly and mushroom and olive tapenade served on crusty bread. For main there will be a choice between slow roasted beef striploin served with hasselback potatoes and seasonal vegetables, oven baked chicken breast served with asparagus and dill sauce or Cowra lamb served with creamy mash and vegetables.
For dessert their will be amazing syrup dumplings, Grandma Earle’s lemon delicious pudding or rhubarb and apple crumble. Call the Old Vic Inn to book your spot today on 6344 1009.
