Dining at The Carrington Hotel

The Carrington Hotel has dining options and locations for all occasions; celebrating a special event, a casual bar lunch with friends, an afternoon tea on The Piazza with visitors, a quick coffee catch up or cocktails in The Lounge, an fine dining anniversary dinner with your special someone or just a casual family pub meal.

The Grand Dining Room

Featuring soaring columns, lofty gilded ceilings and stained glass, the Grand Dining Room is one of the last Victorian dining rooms still open as a dining room in Australia.  The Grand Dining Room you marvel at today is almost identical to the orginal built in 1886 but with a few modern additions for comfort and convenience including air conditioning. 

Evening Dining

The Grand Dining Room offers a seasonal a'la carte menu with an emphasis on fresh ingredients sourced from the Blue Mountains and Central West region of New South Wales. Our Menus are created by Executive Chef, Stefan Klaunzer and his talented team of local and international chefs.

Champagne Charlie's Cocktail Bar

Champagne Charlie was originally a nickname given to French Champagne merchant Charles Heidseick in the 1850's, now a  nickname for anyone who lives a Champagne lifestyle, whether it is on a beer budget or not! Lord Carrington, the Governor of N.S.W, after whom The Carriton was named, was well known for drinking Champagne with breakfast every morning and may well have been called a Champagne Charlie?!

Open from 11:00am daily, Champagne Charlie's is the original and best cocktail bar in Katoomba. Offering a selection of traditional and contemporary cocktails, boutique beers and an extensive wine list including a selection of excellent wines from the local region.

Champagne Charlie's offers lunch daily until 4:30pm, unless otherwise indicated on entry. Our excellent Devonshire teas are a perennial favourite, often enjoyed; in winter, in front of The Lounge fire or in summer, in the dappled light of The Piazza.


The Old City Bank Bar and Brasserie

Opened in June 1912 as a branch of the City Bank of Sydney, the building remained a bank until the 1930's when it became the Carrington Saloon Bar. Renovated and re-opened in the 1990's along with the main hotel, The Old City Bank Bar and Brasserie has become a local favourite offereing consistently good quality, innovative pub food. In 2010 it was inducted into the Australian Hotel's Hall of Fame.
