A microwave, refrigerator, toaster and electric kettle were very handy for simple meal preparation. There is a nice swimming pool and a restaurant that appears to be popular... More

Great little Country Tavern with very friendly staff and bloody delicious (and well priced) meals. Also very easy to find, only a stones throw from the highway. Looking forward to coming back, was well worth the drive from the Northern Beaches. If you're going past I definitely recommend stopping in for a drink and a feed.

Spacious and Spotless motel rooms with beautiful bush scenery. The Tavern boasts a "Bill of Fare" comparable to a top class city tavern and justifiably backs it with meals that are delightful and full of flavour.

Friendly and helpful staff, a relaxed environment, great quality food, and a beautiful setting. All for a reasonable price. Highly recommend for a meal with family and friends, or a few drinks. Amazing looking pool as well. It's well worth pulling off the main road and calling in.

The food here is excellent and very reasonable. The portions are enormous, so make sure you are hungry. Pizzas, steaks, Sunday roasts and fish to name a few. They are served quickly with friendly service. You can also visit for just a drink. They have a meat draw on Friday evenings which is fun and a pool table is available.... More
