The Man Behind the Hotel - Stewart Burchell

I am sure most of us have spent some time at the Roebuck Bay Hotel (or Roey as it is affectionately known). We stopped into the Roey to see if the general manager (Stew) could tell us some interesting facts about the place.

How big is the actual pub?
4 square metres short of a hectare not including Skylla

Who many people would you have through the pub on a big day?
up to 1000

What is the biggest day of the year for the pub?
Thursday before the Broome Cup

Tell us some of the less known things about the pub?
It’s still on tidal ground – occasionally, on big tides, water can be seen in certain areas of the property.
