After a weary couple of hour drive we were starting to get hungry when we pulled in to the bakery. What a selection of delicious pies and cakes. Spoilt for choice & the coffee was superb .

Great look to this bar. It is light and modern with a homy comfortable feel. We ordered the Pizza. It was delicious. Presented in a modern display on a wooden board, it tasted every bit as good as it looked.

A real find and lucky we booked. It does most of its meals in a huge wood fired oven. The girls had wood fired pizzas which were great and I had a garlic crusted fresh flounder done in the oven which was so juicy and flavoursome. The other diner had a huge steak which was cooked to perfection. Drink prices... More

The veggie Brekkie really hit the spot. We were pleasantly surprised to find a place with such good breakfast food in such a small town. They have good strong coffee, friendly staff, and are reasonably quick. It was a very enjoyable meal for not too expensive, and if we lived in Swansea, we would definitely return.

Probably the best all round restaurant/pub in town given the number of diners we encountered there. We ate there twice during our two day stay and the meals were good both times.

My husband and I went to the Bark Mill Tavern for a casual night meal. The atmosphere is cosy and due to us being in Tassie near the ocean we thought we would order a Seafood Platter to share. We were disappointed as there was more batter than Seafood. The fish was mushy and actually tasted like a frozen fish.... More

Ended up at the Tavern eventually after working out how to get into the place, staff were friendly, fire was on. Had breakfast at the Bakery before leaving Swansea and it was yum, huge choice of everything.
