Tuppel Hotel, Finley

Tuppal Hotel, FinleyThe Tuppel Hotel is a big traditional country pub in Finley, New South Wales. Often country pubs have deep verandahs at street level and an open balcony above but the Art Deco style Tuppel just has a cantilevered verandah proving shade for the footpath but offers no balcony space for drinkers.

The building combines horizontal bands in the brickwork with darker coloured bricks provide columns and fins at the central upper storey windows.

The bands around the chimney a nice piece of decoration easily overlooked.

Next time I'm up that way, I'll invest in a beer or two to see what goodies can be found inside.
