we stayed in Swansea for two nights so the Bark Mill seemed the obvious choice. Easy to find at night and had obvious trade unlike several other places we passed on the way there. I had Blue eyed Trevalla one night and Lamb Shanks the next, she had steak one one night and Straciatella the next. All four meals were... More

This pub serves great pub food. Don't expect gourmet, but expect honest food, with servings just a little too large for the average person. These meals are designed for people who've worked hard and heavy all week long. On a Friday and Saturday night the kitchen closes at 8pm! So get in early. It is also very popular, so it... More

The Bark Mill Tavern was recommended by the host at Meredith House B&B. Had a great meal and a fabulous bottle of Kelvedon Pinot Noir.

This place serves low-quality pub meals at fancy steakhouse prices. We ordered the surf and turf with 'creamy garlic sauce'. The steak was dry, overcooked ('well done' when I'd asked for 'rare') and tasteless. The sauce was as if they'd just mixed flour and water. The seafood was frozen - VERY disappointing, again, given the price; but also because of... More

We were visiting locals and they took us here for dinner. We were not disappointed. My partner had the stuffed chicken with vegies. I had the Tassie salmon.....delicious. The meals are very large. We had spent the afternoon walking the National Park near Coles Bay and were hungry but we couldn't finish our meals. Not for the want of trying... More

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 .
