Built in 1914, the Hotel Alexander was an important fixture in the once bustling village of Rydal. When changes were made in the late 1920’s to the Great Western Highway, the town was no longer a through-fare, reducing the town from over 6 licensed Inns down to just the Hotel Alexander, hence the Alexander was dubbed the Rydal Pub. Just 15 minutes from Lithgow, the Rydal Pub today is very popular with tourists and locals alike, known for it's simple, authentic country hospitality.
