Change of guard at Criterion


Rushworth’s Criterion Hotel has long been famous as one of the town’s historic landmarks. But for locals, the Top Pub, as it is commonly known, represents much more. Over the grand old building’s long life it has at various times been a favourite watering hole, a venue for fine dining, a community meeting point - even, for a brief time, the paste-up venue for Waranga News production! New owner Danny Horne and his partner Michelle Beecroft have plans to help the Criterion relive some of its glory days.

School’s in for 2018
