A good place to eat at any time.

located on the main road just out of CBD. Venue caters for Breakfast Lunch and dinner as well as a bar for a drink. Good off street parking and facilities. Tim and his wife were very accommodating towards our group which required breakfast at 6am. Altogether a nice place to eat.

I had the fish of the day which was lovely, my husband chose the lamb shanks which although ok he did not enjoy the sweet potato and sauce which came with it. That said Sarah our waitress was very friendly and... More

Staying just the one night in Swansea, we checked all the menus and prices of the several restaurants and eating places there before deciding on trying the Bark Mill. A traditional long Aussie bar opens out onto a large high room for the restaurant part, wooden floors, wood tables etc, all very clean. Two staff were busy operating the fired... More

We had breakfast at this bakery twice during our stay in Swansea thanks to its early opening hours and great range of food. The pies and pastries are delicious and the coffee is pretty good too.

Highly recommend a pie at the bakery for lunch - really good! In fact I went back twice. I had lasagne at the tavern one night and it was delicious. Be warned - servings are huge!

Breakfast on Sunday morning was at the Bark Mill Bakery. Nice brekkie but bit noisy due to the hollow sound of concrete floor, large space etc. Young guy that served us was quite rude twice while taking our order & bringing our food to the table. My husband spoke to him about it and he came back & apologised. We... More

Nice staff, wide, fresh menu but unevenly priced. Our example: Two poached eggs on toast cost $12 while Toast with 4 butter sachets plus one sachet each of vegemite,honey,apricot jam and strawberry jam cost only $4.50 for breakfast! The per unit cost of the toast serve would have been higher than the cost of two eggs and toast by far.... More

Had a really nice takeaway lunch, fresh ingredients and fast friendly service.. It is on the expensive side but it is without doubt the nicer bakery in Swansea

We had breakfast here before we headed off to Hobart. It was very popular and the service was fast. Good food and very affordable.
