The St George Hotel can be seen as a well kept secret in the heart of the South Belmore/Kingsgrove area. It has retained many of its original features and its design and impressive facade clearly demonstrate its long and proud history. Although it may be located right next to a busy intersection, it provides a relaxing atmosphere and an enjoyable night out. The Hotel also has key facilities such as a drive through and a bottle shop, and if my memory serves me correct, there are also a few car spaces round the back. Nevertheless an abundance of parking spaces can be found on near by streets, and such spaces are usually in low demand.
The prices of drinks are reasonable. Therefore, if ever placed in a position where a quiet night at home seemed inevitable, seriously consider making plans to say hello to the friendly people at the St George Hotel. Unlike other trendy, theme associated bars around Sydney, the St George Hotel is able to boast an old school type of bar. The kind of bar where you would meet up with the lads, play snooker, play darts, or just sit back in the comfortable setting and enjoy a refreshing Schooner of Toohey's Old.
My final comment on the Hotel is this, the St George Hotel is like a gateway to a distant time. A time when a bar was the refuge of hardworking men who sought and longed for a quiet corner of the world where they could recharge and have a feeling of comradeship. A place far removed from the annoying thumping music that has invaded many other 'hotels'.
