Our History

Patrick Callaghan built the first hotel in Appin around 1826 and named it “The Union”. In 1837, John Carey renamed it the “Bourke Hotel” and in the same year James Bean re-named it the “Royal Hotel”. The Royal Hotel closed in 1929 and a fire burnt it to the ground in 1933. Shortly after, a new building was erected and it was named, the “Appin Hotel”.

In 1987 league football legend Brian Hambly bought the Appin Hotel from Ted Wales. It was extensively renovated in the year 2000 to appear how it is today.

Today the Appin Hotel features a Main Bar, Bistro Restaurant, Beer Garden with a kids playground and a separate poker machine area along with TAB and KENO facilities.
