Australia – Iconic establishment reemerges with new experiences

Newcastle’s beloved beachside gem, The Beach Hotel, has officially reopened, after its inspired restoration. Located in the heart of Merewether and steeped in decades of sun, salt and hearty community spirit, the iconic establishment reemerges with new experiences including elevated seaside dining at Peregrin, classic coastal fare in the main pub, and Larrie’s, the retro takeaway shop which opened to local acclaim last year.

Hotelier Glenn Piper, who acquired the expansive multi-level institution in May 2022, dedicated eighteen months to meticulously restore the seaside icon, drawing inspiration from Newcastle’s unique blend of steel city grit and surf culture. The pub has proudly stood a short stroll from the shoreline for over a century.
