Guest Review (16 Mar 2005)

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'.

Pete from Canterbury
The St George Hotel is the kind of place you would hang out at after a busy day of work and backbreaking activity. Although it lies on the side of a major road, Canturbury Road, you can rest assured that the horrible sounds of on coming traffic can not be heard within the safe confines of its bar. The style and decor of the pub is original, due to its focus on displaying the history of the area and of the pub. To describe it in terms that would be familiar, I would have to say that it is close to a federation style of design, while retaining all the modern needs that the beer drinking public require. The drinks are reasonably priced and all the other ways of purchasing alcohol are present. When I say this, I am refering to the presence of a drive through and a bottle shop. Furthermore many other pubs exist near by and all can be accessed by the bus routes that run through Canturbury Road and Burwood road. The St George hotel is a must for any pub crawl that would take place in the Canturbury/Bankstown area!
