The Pembroke opened in 1842. It also got its liquor licence the same year.
The Pembroke isn’t closed on public holidays, they welcome guests and diners.
The Pembrokes facilities are Tas keno (the biggest jackpot was $287,000), the pokies, pool (8 Ball) the Tote and a bottle shop.
The Pembroke also offers a pool tournament if you are interested in pool (8 Ball); we asked how much the Pembroke makes a year with the pokies but it is confidential!
To apply at the Pembroke Hotel as a kitchen hand you must be 14 years old or over. The average income for staff is 35,000-40,000 thousand dollars a year.
There is currently (2008) an ex-student from Sorell School working as a chef in the kitchen he makes really nice food! The Pembroke was involved in a robbery but the security is much better in Sorell now. There is a police station just around the corner.
There are currently no permanent guests at the Pembroke but there is believed to be a ghost. The prices range from $700 dollars a week in a 1 spa suit to $1116.95 for a 5 family apartment but sadly the Pembroke doesn’t have a Valentine’s room.
If you want a great place to stay come to the Pembroke Hotel in Sorell. There is the bird sanctuary, the local park, dance studio, events at the memorial hall (Karate, Dance, P.C.Y.C. etc) and a lot more. Come and stay and meet the friendly staff!
