Great wood fired pizza

Looking for an evening meal we tried this option. It's a standard pub with an attached dining room. They use a converted galvanised iron water tank for a pizza oven and it works a treat. Noted that the other meals being served all looked generous in size. Very good pizza was had.

Fabulous meal. We ordered the Lamb shanks,beer steak with roasted veges, surf and turf and the seafood green curry special. Bring an appetite as the servings are very generous. Worth the revisit.

We pre booked as we were told it would be busy. When we arrived they weren't interested in us. Took ages to order a meal as the lady behind the counter was talking to some locals. The meal I had chosen had sold out, also 2 others on the night. I ended up with the Salmon in white wine sauce... More

We stumbled across this place on a drive up the East Coast of Tasmania. A great place! Bakery onsite which does a great range of bakery treats, and a kids playground that would be great if you were travelling with kids!

Really good dinner at reasonable prices. Nice fresh seafood tasting plate for starters - very fresh and well presented oysters, prawns (two types) and salmon. Excellent pizza to follow - great fillings and a really good crust with just the right bit of char on the edges. Comfortable, down-to-earth place. Great value!

We randomly stopped in to have a pie and we were amazed with the quality and service we received. Highly recommend anyone traveling in the area to stop and have a bite to eat!

Spent the day cruising Coles Bay and around to Wineglass Bay; fabulous trip. Four of us went to Bark Mill and all had great food. The standout was the green fish curry and the grilled flounder a close second. Drinks were reasonable as was the food. Worth a visit.

We had heard great things about this place and the food they served, it lived up to its expectations. However without a booking we had a bad table down in the bar, surrounded by locals as they walked in the door. I had the prawn and scallop pizza.... absolutely delicious, and partner had the surf n turf and enjoyed it... More

Make sure to stop here on your way to Freycinet. The smell alone will make you salivate and when you see their range of cakes and pies you will be in bakery heaven. Loosen your belt and enjoy. Their service is friendly and efficient. It's just a cafe but wow, what a cafe.

We were staying at a nearby holiday rental, phoned through our order at 7pm on a sunday of a long weekend... ready in 15 minutes! Great wood fired pizzas, quality toppings and perfectly cooked, would go again for sure! The dining area was packed and meals we saw looked GREAT!
