Historic River Royal Inn For Sale


Fully restored ‘Inn’ for sale in heritage-rich town of Morpeth. 

 Morpeth, NSW, April 2023 – Iconic pub in the hunter is now available for sale with the recent retirement of the current managers. 

 Adam Leacy of Commercial Collective and Dean Moore from Moore and Moore R/E have been exclusively engaged as agents for the sale of the heritage River Royal Inn in Morpeth. 

The heritage listed ‘Inn’ boasts an in-house restaurant, beer garden and ten beautifully renovated accommodation rooms. Construction commenced on the property in 1818 and the pub was completed and in operation by 1876. The River Royal Inn was restored in 2016 after a super storm in early 2015 significantly damaged the historical pub. The restoration saw many historical items found including pristine pages from an 1880 copy of the Daily Telegraph. Original documents are on display throughout the inn, reflecting the rich history of the property. 

 Mr Leacy says ‘Morpeth has been largely considered to be more of a tourist destination in the past but in recent years it has become a major township, servicing the growing nearby residential subdivisions’. 

The property was originally built for the thriving river port and was frequented by settlers, merchants, mariners, timber getters and farmers. Mr Leacy states ‘the growth in the Morpeth area is exciting to see, especially for properties and businesses like this venue. Coupled with the tourist attraction that its history naturally brings, locals in the area continue to frequent their local pub’. 

Commercial Collective and Moore and Moore R/E are proud to represent the sale of this beautifully restored historical property. The importance of establishments like this for the community is clear to see and we are committed to finding the most suitable buyers for the property and the community’s future.
