About The Old Canberra Inn

Enjoy a piece of history in the heart of Lyneham at The Old Canberra Inn, a family-friendly pub along Mouat Street, dating back to 1857. Lending old world charm, The Inn radiates warmth with lounges by two cosy fireplaces and decor from recycled railway sleepers, while three beer gardens and two function rooms ensure events are well catered for. Giving pub fare a make-over, The Inn sources MSA grass-fed beef, free-range chicken and ham with ever-changing weekend specials and an inhouse smoking machine for succulent meat with a smoky flavour. Go for lamb kofta meatballs, harissa hummus and toasted flatbread; before red wine braised beef short ribs, crispy Parmesan polenta and chimichurri. Burger lovers can wrap their hands around sriracha chicken, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, dill and mayo.

These are building techniques characteristic of the pioneer era, and served it well as a regular stopping place for the Queanbeyan-Yass mail coach. A visitor in 1878 reported that the Inn was “deserving of wide renown for its excellent beer” and described its fare as “first class”.The Inn’s excellent reputation lives on, now with very modern facilities for your next function.
