Camden Valley Inn just weeks away from opening

The buildings are finished, the landscaping is almost done - the new look Camden Valley Inn is just a few weeks away from opening day.

Tradies are busily putting the finishing touches on the iconic local watering hole before it is due to re-open in early September.

Camden Valley Inn manager Kayla Kyling said it was great to see all of the work coming together.

"We don't have the furniture yet but the buildings are all up now," she said.

"The beer garden is going to be a beautiful space with green vines over the top right next to the pizzeria and outdoor bar.

"Before the renovations you couldn't see any of the view unless you were in the function room, but we've opened it all up so you can see all the way out to the mountains from the garden."

The popular inn closed in November last year to undergo a $3.5 million dollar makeover.

The renovations included the demolition of all structures except the two heritage-listed buildings and recently-renovated accommodation units.

The historic buildings received a facelift, under consultation with a heritage architect.

Major modern additions to the pub included gaming room facilities, dining and function areas, as well as additional parking.

A permanent marquee, a new children's playground and petting zoo were also built.

Ms Kyling said the heritage areas remained mostly untouched.

"We ripped up the carpet in the main building and found original timber floors underneath so we have simply kept and refurbished those," she said.

"We kept the iconic fireplace but we will now have a couple of those so people won't have to fight over the one.

"We have kept the original doors as well.

"The loft building is a space that everyone loves and that has just been given a bit of a refurbish."

Ms Kyling said the inn's new staff had been training at their sister pub, The Mean Fiddler, in anticipation for opening day.

"We had more than 1500 people apply for jobs here and we wanted to keep most of them from the local area," she said.

"So about 95 per cent of our new staff members come from the Macarthur region.

"We hired about 100 people."

Camden Valley Inn was originally the Camden Vale Milk Bar.

It was built by the Macarthur family in 1939. They sold milk and cream from the site.

The venue was granted a tavern licence in 1989 and became the inn and restaurant much loved by locals today.

To celebrate the Inn's former life a sculpture of an old-school milk bottle has been installed outside the main entrance.

"We really wanted to celebrate the history of the inn," Ms Kyling said.

"We want it to feel like the old Camden Valley Inn and really showcase what Camden is all about."

The Lewis Land Group, owner of the inn, head of leisure Brad Jenkins said everyone was excited to reopen the new look pub next month.

"Our utmost priority was to ensure we preserved the Camden Valley Inn's heritage and old school country charm but also give it a new school modern feel, and we believe we've certainly achieved that," he said.

"After ten months of renovations we are looking forward to unveiling this to the Camden community."
