The Lion of Waterloo

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The historic Lion of Waterloo is believed to be the oldest licensed hotel west of the Blue Mountains that is still standing. Dating back to 1841, The Lion of Waterloo was a popular destination for coaches, station hands, settlers and later miners.

Cobb and Co coaches would regularly stop here to change horses and refresh passengers before continuing on their journey. Today the Lion has been renovated and is a charming tavern and restaurant.

The Lion of Waterloo opens daily with a wonderful beer garden, den, authentic bar and unique dining room. Meals are served nightly.
Sundays are roast nights and Mondays serving Italian cuisines of pizza and pasta.
