The Hunter's Hub of Live Entertainment

They've only been operating for two years, but already they are a major force in the hospitality industry after taking out the Best Live Music Venue at the 2022 Australian Hotels Association NSW awards, and they're right here in the Hunter Valley!


Huntlee Tavern can also boast finalist status at the Awards for Best Family Friendly Venue, Best Cheap Eats Meal, Best Regional Development, Best Regional Wagering Venue and Best Regional Chef of the Year, becoming somewhat of a 'hub-pub' – the Hub of the Hunter. And now it's the hub of live music too.

Weekend live entertainment starts with R&B DJs on Fridays, a live band playing all of your rock classics on Saturdays, then chill out on Sundays with a solo artist playing in the early afternoon.

The venue's modern design has captured the elegance of the Hunter Valley in a unique, picturesque location adjacent to the vineyards. Built with recycled materials and with a breathtaking panoramic view, the open plan can cater for any occasion.

Indeed, one look at the menu screams "gastropub on steroids", with the world-famous Huntlee Sticky BBQ Pork Ribs front and centre for diners. Not only delicious (think tender ribs cooked to perfection), weighing in at 1kg, it's also guaranteed to conquer your hunger (especially when washed down with one of the multitude of beers on tap!).

The Lounge Bar showcases extensive tap beer, wines and delicious handmade cocktails, while the Public Bar has TAB and Keno facilities available. Why not book a spot on the courtesy bus so you can relax knowing you'll get home safely?

Of course, Huntlee was also a finalist in the Best Family Friendly category, and it's not difficult to understand why. There are plenty of features here for kids, including a children's theatre and indoor children's play areas.

Enjoy the good times! Meet up at the Huntlee, the hub of the Hunter, and join in the chorus of locals who refer to Huntlee Tavern as their own local hub and one of the most beautiful hotels in Australia. For bookings, visit or phone 02 8866 1899.
