Affectionately known as the 'Robbo Pub', it is one of the town's favourite places to catch up over a drink and share a good meal with friends.
Robertson Public House and Kitchen made good use of the COVID shutdown to undertake renovations on the historic building.
An intimate lounge room- complete with fireplace- has replaced the gaming room, while a section of the old manager's quarters has been transformed into Maynard's dining room.
Other existing rooms have taken on the names of local waterfalls, Belmore, Fitzroy and Carrington.
Co-owner Stan Crinis said the renovations enhanced Robertson Public House and Kitchen's reputation as a venue to visit for a memorable dining experience.
"We have opened up some new spaces including a private dining room and lounge with new, refined finishes and decor, whilst still in keeping with the history of the place," he said.
"It doesn't matter whether you're a local dropping in for a quick meal, or a group that has travelled to enjoy our locally-inspired menu, it's the face and places around here that make the experience."
Built in 1887, it is believed to be one of the oldest all-timber buildings remaining in NSW.
It has been through several owners, names and iterations including Tourist Hotel and Country Inn, before being purchased in 2018 by a Wollongong/Kiama consortium.
A new winter menu has also just been released, with classic pub meals complemented by specialist dishes all featuring fresh local produce.
Manager Luke Marley said it was the ideal venue - and timing - for people to catch up with each other.
"It's great to be back in business and seeing all the locals drop in again," he said.
"We're obviously not in full swing yet, given the current restrictions, but as a social hub and foodie destination, we're delighted to welcome people back so they can catch up, swap stories and enjoy a meal and a beer."
