The Glenmore

Warwick was always a firm believer in the values of pride, passion and personality. He believed in the importance of being proud of your work, had a huge passion for the hospitality industry, and used his charismatic personality to create the best possible experiences for customers and staff.

After Warwick sadly passed away, siblings Martin Short and Paris Ballantyne, along with mother Ros Short, created W. Short Hospitality in loving memory of their publican father and husband, with the aim of continuing his legacy and instilling his beliefs into its pubs, hotels and staff.

It’s a little bit 60s, a great deal 70s, whilst also embracing of a new-age Redfern.
