Lion of Waterloo Tavern

89 Montefiores Street, Wellington NSW 2820
The Lion of Waterloo is one of the original hotels in the area, dating back to 1841. Numerous coaches stopped at this hotel after crossing the Macquarie River. It was a successful business venture and attracted settlers, station hands and later minters. After their horses had been changed and passengers refreshed, Cobb and Co crossed the Bell River behind the Lion and today you can have a picnic in the park at the crossing and imagine what a sight the coach must have made as it ploughed its way through the water. The Tavern still welcomes visitors and has some interesting history of its own (in 1854, it is said to have witnessed the last known duel in Australia). This historic tavern with its rustic charm is open daily for drinks and dinner.

In June 2000, the business was purchased by Sandra and Mick Banks and with the sale came the name change to Bell River Estate. In January 2001, the focus of the business has not fundamentally changed with perhaps a little more emphasis on marketing table wines to a broader spectrum of country based customers.
