Good Pizza but bakery is over rated.

Ate here for dinner on the two for one pizza night. The pizzas were actually pretty good - and the beer was just fine. Came back to the bakery part for breakfast the next morning, but was disappointed. It was over priced and the coffee was very average.

We ate dinner here. My husband had the pizza special (roughly 30cm diameter) and I had a chicken parmigana. Service was very prompt even though they were fully booked. Servings were large - good value. We both really enjoyed our dinner. The cozy open wood fire was lovely to eat by!

Great bakery and Resturant. Good food and coffee. Family friendly and a place that's obviously very popular with the locals.

After a long day driving and exploring, we needed somewhere to refuel and Bark Mill Tavern was just the place - a wide selection of local beers and ciders and good bar menu. The stripped trumpeter fish (which I'd never heard of) was delicious and the portions were huge.

This was a lovely venue for some hearty food, served with a smile on a rather cold evening in June 2015. We sat close to the fire, drank Tasmanian wines and enjoyed some delicious food for dinner. Great food, simple pleasures.

Of course, I haven't visited the whole of the southern hemisphere, to say the least. This year we took our first trip there, travelling to Australia, Tasmania and new Zealand, and encountered many superlatives associated with this area (the tallest, the biggest, the oldest....in southern hemisphere). When arriving in Swansea, we had Bark Mill on our list to visit, especially... More

We had dinner here on our overnight stay in Swansea. The place itself was pretty much what you would expect, with a pub-type atmosphere. We were given a table near the fire and enjoyed a beer and wine whilst waiting for our pizzas. We ordered three large pizzas, they arrived fairly promptly and even though they were

As long as you manage your expectations, you'll like this place. Here's what you need to know: - The staff is VERY friendly. - The interior looks a little like a fast food place. There is an arcade for kids and florescent light. There is a fire place which helps warm the place a bit. - The pizza is OK-good.... More
