Tumbulgum is a 20 minute drive from Coolangatta. The pub which was built in 1887 overlooks a park and the Tweed River. The four of us had lunch on a nice sunny day... great outlook. The meals are ordered at the bistro and then brought to your table. The meals are reasonably priced. We had a variety which were enjoyable... More

This is a traditional Australian eatery in a lovely position on the south bank of the Tweed river. We arrived rather late for lunch but still with half an hour to spare before the kitchen closed. The welcome was friendly but the food when it came left much to be desired. Although the puff pastry lid to my beef pie... More

There is no doubt this tavern has the best view ...picture perfect but the food needs a serious overhaul. The meals are restaurant prices but poor quality and the menu rarely changes even the specials are the same...where is the fresh seafood the area is known for ?

Visited this picturesque place on the Tweed River with my family. Kids' playground out the back was a winner from the start. We had the creamy fettuccine with prawns, the middle-eastern lamb cutlets with a Greek salad and kids chicken nuggets and chips. The pasta was generously sized with large prawns in a very garlicky, very creamy sauce. The basil... More

Heard great news about it, situated on the lovely scenic lake and all, but thank goodness for the view! Spring rolls, wrapped 10 times in pastry, were chewy, really chewy, not crunchy and light like we had hoped? And the filling was brown and brown and tasteless. And we paid $12.50 for that! Beef pie, obviously heated the beef base,... More

We went here for Sunday lunch with a large group - probably their busiest day of the week. You can't beat the location opposite the Tweed River & the meals are a good size and not too badly priced. I had lamb cutlets & they were delicious and did not hear anyone in our group say anything negative about their... More

For over 20 years we've eaten at the Tumbulgum Tavern. From Rotary Dinners, Family meals, Staff Christmas Party's and of course we've taken a large number of visiting friends here to eat and enjoy the lovely Tweed River views. The food is very good and served faster than most pubs. We sit out on the verandah and enjoy the view.... More
