Renders: Faculty Design.

The Cumberland Hotel, affectionately known as ‘The Cumby’ by locals and patrons alike, is set to undergo a major expansion that will breathe new life into the iconic establishment.

The ambitious expansion plans have been officially unveiled by PlanSA, and the design is in the capable hands of Faculty Design. The expansion will enhance the hotel’s offerings while preserving its charm and character, with the ground floor of the hotel set to receive some significant changes.

Detailed in the expansion plans is a new, larger pokies room that can accommodate up to 20 patrons with a sliding door to enter the space. A brand-new dining room and a new proposed kitchen area are also on the cards, along with the construction of a keg room.

Another notable change in the expansion plans is the transformation of the existing lawn area. While some parts will make way for a new driveway, walk path, and bin room, the existing outdoor pergola area and shed will remain, ensuring the familiar, inviting ambience.

According to the plans, to make room for the additional space, certain areas like the existing laundry, one of the sheds, and cool room will be demolished, making way for a new slab. However, the heart of the Cumberland Hotel, the indoor bar area, and bar seating area, will remain intact .

Large glass doors will also be a part of the expanded space, which will open up to steps and a ramp. These additions will ensure easy access to the area which leads to the existing outdoor pergola area.

The exterior of the Cumberland Hotel will receive a bit of a fresh makeover as well. A new coat of paint will be splashed onto elements such as the signage, windows, doors, and quoins out front. The stone wall will remain and the heritage facade will be carefully restored and color-matched by the builder, preserving the historic charm of the hotel. The pergola area out the back will also get a fresh coat of paint.

The Cumberland Hotel is a popular destination to drink and dine in SA, offering a diverse menu of pub favourites including schnitzles, burgers and a tempting array of desserts. Whether you’re in the mood for a glass of ice-cold tap beer, wine, or a spirit, you’ll find the perfect pairing to complement your meal.

The Cumberland Hotel also boasts an array of inviting spaces to host private functions, which exude a pub atmosphere that is both warm and hospitable.

WHAT: Cumberland Hotel.
WHERE: 76 Causeway Rd, Glanville SA, 5015.
