Meet the Publicans

Joe and Charmaine cross

Joe came to Tumby Bay from Moonta on the York Peninsula and purchased the hotel with his sister and brother in law in 1990. After taking time to travel the world, Joe came home and met life long local and now wife, Charmaine. Joe and Chars are now the sole owners of The Red Roof and pride themselves on their small part of the community, where their staff and service are part of what makes the hotel so popular and something they are incredibly proud of.

Come and Love Tumby Bay!
