About

Located a stone's throw from Tamworth, the Kootingal Hotel is everyone's dream local. A friendly publican and warm atmosphere, it is impossible not to feel welcomed. 

Built in the 1950s the Kootingal Hotel has been well established as the local watering hole for many of our locals. Being family owned by husband and wife team Andrew and Rowena Yeo together with their four children, the community spirit is in full force.  

After growing up in the region, Andrew knew that country pubs were in his blood and moved to Kootingal in 2007. Andrew and Rowena have a strong philosophy that a supported community is a thriving community, with local sponsorship and fundraisers as a focus.   

“Investing back into our wonderful community ensures it will continue to grow and strengthen as a critical community to the Tamworth region” Andrew Yeo.

Offering a warm family friendly atmosphere, our Hotel is an ideal setting for lunch or dinner with a landscaped beer garden, complete with a children’s playground.

Our Hotel incorporates a Public Bar offering six deliciously cold beers on tap, Keno, TAB room VIP Room and Pool Table. Two Dining areas and the Beer Garden opened seven days for lunch and Wednesday to Saturday nights for dinner. These three areas also provide the perfect venue to hold small to large functions including birthdays, reunions, presentations, fundraisers, concerts and weddings.

Come and enjoy great service, cold and crisp draught beer, and fun entertainment at the Kootingal Hotel – more than just a local.
