Owned and operated by Parkes local Bianca Sheridan & Kasie Ferguson since December 2010 the Railway Hotel operates 7 days a week from 10am until late. We do not have accommodation however we do offer a fun and friendly environment where people come to relax, dine and be entertained.


After a few years living & working on Hamilton Island we made the tree change to take over The Railway. With the skills and knowledge we had gained on the island and many years before that in the hospitality industry we knew we had something special to bring to Parkes.


Soon after the move we added Boxer Dog, Chuck Bass to the family. He soon became the brand ambassador and star of our logo. Along with our unique approach to a country pub Chuck became a household name and helped put The Railway Hotel on the map.


We strive to offer our customers a different pub experience with an extensive menu, specialty drinks & a high level of customer service. If it’s a morning coffee, after work cocktails or beers over the football we have got you covered with our main bar, sports bar & beer garden spaces. Our gaming room boasts all the latest TAB facilities including Trackside and Keno. 

At the end of 2016 we built a new space on the second level of the hotel, named after our son, Hart! Hart Bar is a multipurpose space that caters for live entertainment, corporate functions, weddings and so much more. The only hotel veranda in Parkes overlooking the Silos it is the perfect spot dinner & drinks.

In 2017 Hart Bar was awarded a Highly Commended for Best New Innovative Refurbishment at the AHA Awards! The business was also awarded Excellence in Hospitality at the local ‘Henry’ Awards.

We continuously are looking for ways to improve our business to benefit our customers and the town of Parkes. If you have any feedback you would like to share we would love you to drop us a line.


Peace, Love & Pizza,

Bianca, Kasie, Chuck & Hart
