New Bar & Grill Restaurant Format to Open October 11th - First Outcome of MergerI’m writing to announce that two of Bungendore’s leading hospitality businesses have merged to create a bigger and better hospitality offering – the Carrington Inn and Café Woodworks. Café Woodworks, one of the best cafés in the region, merged with one of the best rural accommodation venues on August 17th. Café founder, Eric Dangerfield, has become the General Manager for the activities of the new larger enterprise – Food, Drink, Catering, and Entertainment.Now with Eric, we are updating the format of our Carrington restaurant to be less formal, a bit louder, concentrate on locally grown produce, and make our bar more fun. So, with all that in mind, we are working on relaunching the CARRINGTON BAR & GRILL, a steakhouse style venue.The new menu is exciting. It has the key elements of popular steakhouses around the world. These are generous portions, delicious food, great desserts, and a Speciality of the House that the restaurant will excel in. We will announce that new menu closer to the opening. We’ve also heard the requests of mums and dads to have a good ‘kids’ menu. We will!The new format will open on Wednesday, October 11th. We are confident that when the CARRINGTON BAR & GRILL opens it will be a great dinner and drinks venue for family and friends.We look forward seeing you from the 11th for really great food and a fun time!Richard GrahamCarrington Inn ...

Welcome to the Carrington Inn Photo Gallery.
It is our wish to share with you pictures from around the Inn at different times and seasons. If you are thinking of visiting us they will give you a hint of what you can look forward to. If you have visited us, they will help you recall your visit.
For 131 years, the Carrington has been a work in progress; constantly evolving to fit the changing needs and expectations of travellers. The Inn does not aspire to have 5 so-called Stars, unless they are in the Southern Cross that hangs above it at night. No, the Inn is about wholesome and genuine hospitality that makes people feel comfortable and welcome when they are away from home. Hospitality that makes them feel better when they leave than when they came.
In these images we hope you’ll see that commitment.
Providing quality service comes naturally to our staff at The Carrington. Come visit the Inn and enjoy our authentic care for your comfort. Care, without a huge price attached, which is uncommon in this 21st Century.
Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by a warm and congenial Guest Service staff member, who is eager to get you settled as soon as possible. As you walk under an open verandah to your room, you’ll begin to shrug off the burdens of work or travel.
On the way to your room with windows that open to fresh air and the sound of native birds, you may smell fresh mown grass and fragrant vintage roses and lavender growing along the path for you.
After you refresh in your room, stroll through Elm Park, the Inn’s private garden on your way to The TOM WILLS Tavern for some refreshing drinks and tapas share-plates, or the Wintergarden dining rooms for a wholesome and satisfying meal. A Guest Service Assistant would be happy to provide you a tour of the Inn and share with you some of the background information about the 130-year-old property.
