A old, quaint small pub on the Barrier Hwy an hour-ish from Broken Hill, a good stopover for a meal or camp across the road.
We had cold cans of beer and a big steak sandwich for a late lunch.
If pub doesn't sell by end of September it will close and owners will live in it. #maximeyesmotorhome

Great little place for a short break. Plenty of room to park van. Lovely publicans who are ready for a chat and they make a good coffee. Clean public toilets. Good place to stretch legs on the way from Broken Hill to Port Augusta.?

Great little country pub and with great prices on food and beer! Definitely worth a stop in for a few drinks and a chat with the locals!

So very pleased we opted to stop here!! There were quite a few caravans already parked across the road to the Olary Hotel.

What a fabulous little pub!! So much more than we had expected!! The hosts were also great!!

Super busy in the hotel tonight sharing stories with the other campers. I ordered the fisherman's basket ??'? (Best fisherman's basket I've had in a long time. Sooo good!) and hubby ordered parmigiana and veggies ??'? So enjoyed the night!!!

Definitely recommend!!

The better half had been hanging out for a pie on our 12th trip from coast to coast. We had had little trouble finding bakeries in smallish towns up until 2019. It took us until Olary to find a place which was not closed on that day of the week, a Saturday or Sunday or just closed completely. Enter Olary Hotel. The manager heard our story and apologised that there were no pies left. However, she said "hang on a minute" and whilst we were having a welcomed cold beer, a delicious pie appeared. I suspect it came from the pubs personal stash. That is going above and beyond. We stayed for quite a while having a lovely chat. Do drop in if you can.

Called into the Olary Hotel for lunch today. Great to see it is now open, as a couple of years ago, when we came by, it was closed. We were not disappointed with our meal. My wife, who usually won't eat a hamburger, ordered the burger and I ordered the Steak Sandwich both with the lot. My wife devoured the burger and said it was the best burger she has ever eaten. My Steak sandwich was great. Good old fashioned, home made, fresh, tasty generous burgers.
Sadly we didn't get the new owners names, but they were friendly and nothing was a problem. We wish them both well and thank them for bringing an old pub back to life.

We dropped in for lunch and a couple of beers. Awesome hamburgers and great atmosphere... would have loved to stay overnight in the camping area across the road. We had a booking and needed to go...!
Definitely drop in for a beer and food if you're going past. ?

Great place to break down only place in town. While we waited for the tow truck from Peterborough the pub served us great coffee and later the best steak sandwich ever

A great real Australian pub to visit.
We didn't stay so can't comment on that aspect.
Not did we stop for a meal, however the small dining room and the menu looked very suitable.
Plenty of warm friendship and knowledge about what's on.
They mentioned a motorcycle show in Broken Hill and taking their advice we did call in to that event that otherwise we would not have known about.

Perfect outback pub. Cold beer, footy on the TV, good meals and friendly owners ready for a chinwag. Will definitely make it a regular stop when passing through.

It's the best pub for miles!....in fact, it's the ONLY pub for miles. It's a welcome stop for a great steak sandwich with a beer.

Sign about 10 kilometres from Olary boasted pub food and cold drinks. You can see from the photos that Olary is somewhat in decline. There's a sign on the pub saying it's closed indefinitely for renovations and will open eventually when they get their license back.
