Wayside Inn, 2004

The first publican of the Wayside Inn was James B Lamond, a former barman in 1868 at one of Melbourneís earliest hotels, Scottís Hotel in Bourke Street. The hotel was rebuilt in 1915, probably in response to the mass-closure of hotels that was due, in part, to the declining quality of buildings and services.The Wayside Inn still operates as a hotel, yet its layout and menu owe more to contemporary bar, rather than traditional pub culture.
