The Welcome Hotel – Sydney

The Client

In 1878, Winston – a stowaway pooch lost his master. The plucky English fox hound was lucky enough to stumble upon a friendly publican in his drinking house on Evans Street. He welcomed the dog into the pub giving it a new home. That day a legend was born and the public house gained not only a new mascot but an inspired name!

True to its title, The Welcome continues to be known for its hospitality – along with a cracking wine cellar, beer menu and dining culture.

You will find the Welcome Hotel at: 91 Evans St, Rozelle NSW 2039.

The Suburb

Rozelle is a suburb in the inner west of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is located 4 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the Inner West Council.

In December 1892, prior to the opening of the new post office, the Postmaster-General declared Rozelle (named after the nearby Rozelle Bay to the south east) as the new name for the Balmain West post office. The new Rozelle post office opened in 1894 and by the early 1900s, both the suburb itself and local residents had adopted the name.

The name Rozelle and Rozelle Bay (often shown as “Rozella Bay” on old maps), originated from the parrots found in abundance at Rose Hill (near Parramatta) the first suburb of Sydney, established as a prime farming area for the new colony. The parrots, also in abundance in the inner west Bay area of Sydney, were commonly called “Rose Hill parrots” or “Rose-hillers” then Rosella.
