Had not been for over 18 months. We were pleasantly surprised by the menu. A good selection of seafood at reasonable prices, the T-Bone was tender and cooked as requested. The staff were very helpful and the dining area was neat and tidy. Have been twice in the last month.

Great off the main road spot, to relax. Some wonderful trees and meandering river to watch while you relax with a coldie.

Started with 1/2 dozen fresh oysters - delish. Four casual meals off the menu, couldn't be faulted. The bistro is clean and beautifully presented. Lovely country pub on the river. Take a trip out of Cooloongatta, not to be missed.

Location is great sat out on veranda and although it was a hot day the breeze of the river was great. Meal was enjoyable. Service excellent. Would definitely visit again when in the area.

This is a gorgeous old pub in a lovely location. Can highly recommend the seafood or prawn plates as offering quality freshness at a good price. Very pleasant venue to meet with large or small groups. A very enjoyable lunch!

LIFE'S MOMENTS: Angus steak bangers & mash I ordered yesterday from the wonderful Tumbulgum Tavern. Looks great doesn't it? Cost $19.00. That's expensive, but that's what I wanted. I excitedly hacked a snag in half. It was nearly raw. I cut the another two and they were also near raw. I pushed the plate aside and sipped my beer. Later,... More

This was one of the most relaxing places we have had lunch in with lovely views of the Tweed River and Mount Warning across the way. Interesting pictures and memorabilia on the walls are worth a look. The meals were good quality and plentiful and a lovely cup of coffee afterwards. Menu seemed to have something for everyone.They were setting... More

Luv this place for Family occasions with our little ones in our Family. The kids playground is a big hit, the bird cages are popular as well. River views add to the quaint country Pub feel and it's very peaceful here 👍
