Dogs welcome

Starting life back in the late 18th century as two houses, before becoming the Melbourne Hotel in the mid-19th century, Harpur's continues to welcome guests from far and wide. It’s now a modern inn and restaurant with an increasingly strong following not only for its ales but also for its food; dishes use some of the finest local ingredients. Situated in the attractive Georgian town of Melbourne and steeped in history, Harpur's offers comfortably appointed en suite accommodation. The inn is within easy reach of the National Forest.
