THE Lennox Hotel was located on the south west corner of George and Smith Streets Parramatta, NSW.

The pub opened as a Tooheys tied house in October 1958 and traded for less than 30 years before it was closed in 1984 and demolished soon after.

The pub faced George Street, and sat next door to the Roxy Theatre. The closure of Parramatta’s iconic, Tattersall’s Hotel in 1958 and the transfering of its license, enabled the Lennox Hotel to open for business.

Barry Tarot, who lived up the road from the pub and who was a regular customer, told me that the Lennox Hotel closed in 1984. The pub was replaced with a Coopers and Lybrand high rise development.
