I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Luke Tilse of The Happy Wombat and team have reimagined the old Carrington Place hotel into the vibrant Young Street Hotel. Since opening early December 2020, they have welcomed a steady stream of customers to their friendly family space. The plan to create a hub for the Carrington community is well underway as the beer garden is such a welcoming meeting space and play area for children and the vibe is friendly, casual and relaxed.

The hotel is divided into two main areas, the front bar with large screen TVs and a 20 tap beer tower. Out the back, there is a large open dining room that spills out into the relaxed family-friendly beer garden. The magnificent central table is 5 metres long and recycled by Luke's cousins from a century-old bridge near Scone.

The food menu is composed of dishes that utilise the pizza ovens and are perfect to share with friends over drinks. As the venue becomes more established, there are plans for the addition of some pub classics and weekly specials. There is a drink to suit everyone from craft beer, Hunter wines and cocktails, soft drinks and cider.

They have also revived the accomodation and rooms are available from $99 a night. The food is tasty, fresh and made from local ingredients by a young enthusiastic chef and her team who can be seen plying their trade in the open kitchen.
