Burrawang - Best NSW Pub!

Julie and I are great mates with the owners of Burrawang Pub. Last night at the SMH Good Pub Food Guide Awards they won Best Country Pub AND best Overall Pub for NSW. We couldn't think of a more deserving reward for the incredible hard work and dedication they offer to the responsible drinking public. I recall back in the early 90's, Ed and Julie were looking for a run down pub they could weave their magic around and they certainly found it in the little village of Burrawang. Having done their time in various ownership and managerial roles in Jerilderie and Wollongong, they felt it was time to capitalise on their skills and experience. They took over at Burrawang in January 1993 and they were greeted within a couple of days of ownership with a huge hail storm that smashed most of the south facing windows and stripped all the wonderful trees of their leaves. Welcome to your new home! I've watched the long hours and tasteful evolution of the Burrawang Pub into its award winning persona over the past 19 years. And in fact Julie and I were married in the grounds of the pub in 2008.
Congratulations to Ed, Julie, Peter and all the team at Burrawang Pub.
