Stopped for a pub dinner and enjoyed the typical country feel. Very friendly staff ate outside in the open space . Disagree with previous comments that food was salty as we found our steaks under seasoned maybe tavern has over corrected the seasoning based on feedback? Great peach trifle and local wines. Worth a stop

Close to Swansea, a popular watering hole with the restaurant very close to the public bar. The food was a good standard but expensive for a pub meal. Servings were generous and the service was good. Order by 7:30pm or you might miss out... Everything closes early in Tasmania or so it seems...

Very salty food, don't go if you want a semi-healthy meal out. My partner ordered the pizza which looked ok, but very salty again. I ordered the stir fry which was absolutely drowning in what seemed like "Kan Tong" packet sauce. It was ok, but for the price you pay I would not go back. Not sure where that money... More

Stopped in here for lunch recently. Pies were fantastic and our little one got into the mini quiches and then had a great time on the play equipment.

My husband and I stayed at Swansea for 3 nights and as the Bark Mill Tavern was in walking distance from our accommodation we dined there on two occasions as well as having a morning coffee in the Bakery. The Tavern meals were very good. The venue appears to be the local meeting place for the 'boys' and it was... More

This a great little tavern with a good menu. They have wonderful fireplaces which were going even in early October . It is a little out of town so either have a driver or be prepared to walk back , which is not too far to town ( about 10 mins) Great night out out with good food - husband... More

We tossed and turned all day for where to have dinner (only 2-3 choices) but we were really happy with the Tavern. Seafood plate and pizza and both were fantastic. Very nice, friendly and helpful service. We had a great night and finished off with a game of snookers.

We stayed in Swansea for a couple of nights and enjoyed our visits to the bakery. The staff were very friendly and the coffee, pies and pastries were excellent. It's a good spot to pick up sandwiches for your hike at Freycinet national park.

Really good quality food, friendly staff and reasonable prices. The seafood platter ($35 but worth every cent) and the pizza are what I'd recommend!
