We’re Renovating!

If you have driven past us recently you will see we are currently building a brand new Bottle shop and beer garden! Through this time we will be fully operational inside our bar, gaming and bistro dining area. Come on in and check out our future plans and see the changes for yourself!

Follow our facebook page for all updates regarding the renovations…

With a 'country pub' feel and a large space, the Shorty Pub caters for everyone. Whether you want a quiet beer and game of pool with your mates or a family outing we have it all.


In 2018 we were nominated in 6 categories in the AHA NSW Awards. We were lucky enough to walk away as the winners with the ‘Best Cheap Eat Under $15’.

We are very proud and look forward to entering in the 2019 awards.

50 years strong in the heart of Shortland, Nick took over management of the Shortland Hotel in mid 2014, including the bottleshop, bar and bistro.

The Shorty Pub is a suburban hotel about 15 minutes from the Newcastle CBD. It is within close proximity to Newcastle University.
