HISTORY OF THE INN

20171209-BWI001-6 copy.jpg

THE LOCATION OF THE INN ON BEROWRA CREEK, A TRIBUTARY OF THE HAWKESBURY RIVER, HAS BEEN IMPORTANT TO INDIGENOUS PEOPLE FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS. A TEAHOUSE/Guest house WAS FIRST BUILT ON THE SITE IN THE 1920S. IN THE MID-1970S THE BUILDING WAS TRANSFORMED BY PRITZKER PRIZE-WINNING ARCHITECT GLENN MURCUTT IN HIS DISTINCTIVE AUSTRALIAN VERNACULAR STYLE, COMBINING SYDNEY SANDSTONE WITH CORRUGATED TIN AND GLASS LOUVRE WINDOWS. Glenn’s vision for the building revealed itself in 1977 with the final stage completed in 1983. EXECUTIVE CHEF BRIAN GERAGHTY TOOK OVER THE OWNERSHIP OF THE RESTAURANT IN 2012.

ORIGINALLY DESCRIBED BY ITS ARCHITECT AS A “VERANDA BY THE WATER”, THE INN HAS BEEN CONSIDERED AMONG AUSTRALIA’S BEST RESTAURANTS SINCE ITS INCEPTION.
