About Shortland Hotel: 

Welcome to the Shortland Hotel. At ‘The Shorty’ everyone is part of the family!

We have a variety of bar areas & entertainment to enjoy a quiet relaxed drink with friends or listen to live music. From punters to party goers or to escape the hustle & bustle of the inner Newcastle City, this is the bar to suit you. We are family-friendly, with a great kids play zone.

Come watch the races live on Sky Channel & enjoy the facilities of the refurbished TAB & revamped beer garden. The latest footy, sports & events can be viewed with Foxtel on the big screens displayed on our feature timber wall.

Young tough guy locals stuff your pub

8 years 8 months ago

Love the staff, they are excellent and friendly A++
Your problem is young blokes who think they are tough. Too many tattooed little runts with arms the size of small drinking straws who strut around like they own the joint. Great bunch of older locals and punters who embrace the old school kind of sit at the bar and say g'day ethic.
But later on the wannabe tough guys (just 18 and tuff with mates...) stuff the nice country pub atmosphere up... Sorry guys, just telling it like it is as a guy who travels and loves a beer and counter meal.
By the way the meal was great...
And finally just want to say again that all the staff, particularly the female bar staff are fantastic, always smiling and engaging.

I must say I was impressed with the quality of food at Shortland Hotel. The daily specials also make it affordable to go there at least once a week. I don't think I have had a 'bad meal experience' yet - and I am a fussy eater. I quite like the family friendly environment. Given we do not have a reliable car at the moment, we prefer something a bit closer to home. From the outside I thought Shortland Hotel was a 'no go zone' however I was pleasantly surprised once I stepped inside and had a look. The steak nights are my favourites.Really, can you prepare a steak and vegie meal for $13pp?? If I am having another long working day, Shortland Hotel is the way to go. You can either dine in or take your meal as a take away. Beats the fish and chip place up the road. NB: I am a foodie and love to create master pieces at home, it's nice to 'get out though' and unwind after a long day at work. Thanks to the staff for making our visits memorable ones. Cheers, Lozza
