Lambton Park Hotel welcomes new management

John Elsley and Lukas Thodas have taken over the Lambton Park Hotel with the aim to transform the longstanding establishment into a true family-friendly destination.

The Lambton Park Hotel boasts a rich history dating back 140 years, making it one of Newcastle’s oldest establishments. Formerly known as the Exchange Hotel, the venue now champions its nostalgia while embracing its modern elements.

“John has a wealth of experience in running venues that deliver a great experience all around,” publican Lukas Thodas said.

“Great food and quality drinks will be a drawcard for many, and we’ll look at adding entertainment and a few other goodies down the track.”

John Elsley needs no introduction to the local venue scene with an impressive background in running several local venues.

“We are very proud about the fact that all our venues are pokie free, and given the location of the Lambton Park Hotel, it makes sense that this venue moves towards being more family-orientated,” John said.

“The gaming area is already gone, with a function space to go in its place, and we have revised the food and drinks menus”. “They are only small changes initially, we really want to get a feel for the community first, and then make updates based on the feedback we get.”

Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a regular patron, you can check out the new management style at Lambton Park Hotel by visiting them at 19a Moorehead Street in Lambton.
