Holding pride of place on the corner of Guy and Pratten Streets since 1876, the Sovereign Hotel has a rich and celebrated history.
Original owner Tim Kane was granted a publican's general licence for his new house, which offered 3 sitting rooms and 6 bedrooms. Run by Tim, and then his widow Jane, the hotel fast became a much loved venue in the Warwick community for being 'in town, though away from the business part of it'. When the license changed to WM Saunders in 1893, the business briefly changed its name to 'The Club Hotel' but, after changing hands back to Jane Kane in 1894, it returned to 'The Sovereign Hotel'.
In 1942, plans were drawn for the 'new' hotel structure, much as it standstoday. The business was reopened in 1943, and during World War II the topfloor of the hotel was used to house officers of the Australian Army.
Today, the Sovereign's history of fine hospitality is continued by the 28th licensees - your hosts Jason & Sarah Worth.
Along with their dedicated team, Jason & Sarah welcome you to Warwick's own Sovereign Hotel.
