The Heart of Mintaro

THE Magpie and Stump Hotel in Mintaro has received a major facelift, with new publicans, Paul Rosenich and Amanda Henry, breathing new life into the historic building.

While it’s the first time both of them have owned their own pub, Paul and Amanda have managed sporting clubs before, and have had experience in the environment as their grandparents owned hotels.

Walking into the front bar, you are greeted with a crisp, clean open area with a grand Edwardian style mantle mirror to match – Martindale Hall style!

The wall-long fridge is gone, and the walls now open up to the cosy dining area.

All renovations adhered to the strict Historical Council rules and regulations, so none of the old charm and character has been lost.
