Camden Valley Inn works on track

Camden Valley Inn is well on track to open in August as planned.

The iconic pub has been undergoing a massive transformation since November last year.

Brad Jenkins, head of leisure for Lewis Land (the company which owns Camden Valley Inn), said he was delighted that the works were going to schedule.

"Construction is all going to plan so far so we are on track to open in mid-August as planned," he said.

"It's been a pretty conventional build so far and it's progressing pretty nicely."

The renovations include the demolition of all structures except the two heritage-listed buildings and recently-renovated accommodation units.

The historic buildings will receive a facelift, under consultation with a heritage architect.

Major modern additions to the pub will include gaming room facilities, dining and function areas, as well as additional parking.

A permanent marquee, a new children's playground and petting zoo will also be built.

Mr Jenkins said the recruitment process for new staff was now under way.

"We're hoping to employ local people - there are heaps of roles available," he said.

"We have already posted our job ads on the Camden Valley Inn Facebook page too."

The jobs on offer include head chef and kitchen roles, duty management, function staff, food and beverage attendants, marketing and event management.

While Mr Jenkins could not confirm an exact opening date, he said he was excited to see the project when it is finished.

"We have never done anything like this before," he said.

"This is the biggest build we have ever done and we are pretty excited to see the final result."

Camden Valley Inn was originally the Camden Vale Milk Bar.

It was built by the Macarthur family in 1939. The sold milk and cream from the site.

The venue was granted a tavern licence in 1989 and became the inn and restaurant much loved by locals today.
