The Governor

An expansive multi-level pub offering a diverse range of spaces to eat, drink and socialise.

Venue information

The Governor Hotel located in Macquarie Park, is an exciting new dining destination for the local community and surrounding areas.

The Governor’s ground floor is home to a spacious main bar and bistro – the ideal setting for a weeknight date or special catch-up. With its timber detailing, exposed brick walls, live green wall and festoon lighting, the garden terrace provides the perfect spot for those wanting to catch the afternoon sun.

Head Chef Luke Lashford is behind all of The Governor’s menus – which provides a variety of options for the many experiences within – from teriyaki chicken poke salad in the sun-drenched terrace, to a flavoursome pizza by the bar and slow-cooked Flinders Island lamb shoulder for two, served in the intimate alcoves of the downstairs bistro. Lashford, who honed his skills in large-scale venues including Sheraton on the Park and The Australian Hotel and Brewery, believes that a great pub is a place with different offerings for different occasions. “That’s the key to creating a pub where you’ll want to return time and time again,” he says. “And it’s exactly what The Governor is all about. It’s somewhere you can settle in no matter what the hour and be well fed and watered no matter where you decide to perch”.
