Well, we’re not gonna be a goose and talk ourselves up, but our story building the Pretoria hotel in Mannum is a good yarn. Where do we start? The place is over 100 years old, opened December 22nd 1900 by publican Samuel Mundy Hoad. It’s been there so long, you can still the 1956 flood marker as you head into the bar which was totally underwater! Don’t worry, now you can have a great view of the water from a safe distance; from the bar.
The Pretoria Mannum now has all the modern bells and whistles: a great bar with a view of the river and the front bar which we call the Main Street Bar. Function spaces, a high-end bottle shop and cellar door.
We’re still in good hands; the Pretoria is run by the family business, the Hurley Hotel Group. With experience in a variety of country and metropolitan pubs, they put the community first.
That’s what makes the Pretoria Hotel a great place: it’s community focused, bringing locals and visitors together.
It’s natural splendour by the river here. You love to see it.
