This week’s sponsorship tribute is to the management and staff of the Golden Barley Hotel, Enmore
The popular Golden Barley Hotel is located on the corner of Edgeware Road and Llewellyn Street, Enmore and is renowned far and wide for its magnificent Art Deco architecture.
This establishment is famous for its great range of beers, friendly service, comfortable lounges and leafy beer garden. The bistro is a great drawcard as well.
The Golden Barley is under the management of Andrew and Penny Hewlett and they have been staunch sponsors of the Newtown Jets since the early 2000s.
Without the ongoing support of businesses such as the Golden Barley Hotel, our club could not continue to put on the high standard of rugby league entertainment that so many thousands of people enjoy each year at Henson Park
Lifelong Newtown Jets supporter Gavin Gordon has hosted well-attended Trivia Nights at the Golden Barley for the past 21 years.
Another feature of the Golden Barley is the splendid Newtown Jets wall mural at the back of the hotel in Llewellyn Street, Enmore.
