Originally fronted another dining site. Their door statement said, "Easter Trading Hours" then went down the line indicating they were closed all over Easter. So we drove a few hundred metres up the road and saw the Bago Tavern - why not? We popped in - the wife ordered a creamy chicken fettucine - looked really good. I ordered the... More

Hi Dougy D We can only apologise, it was a shocker of a night. Completely understaffed and not prepared to handle 240 meals. It was a record for a Sunday evening. All excuses aside Next time you visit we would like to offer your family meals at half price or alternately I could post you a dining voucher as an... More

Delicious food is plentiful at the Bago Tavern, our long-time favourite place to eat when travelling from Sydney to the North Coast. Well worth a stop-in. The Bago Tavern caters for all needs and circumstances: Family oriented atmosphere (even a giant giraffe and play equipment to entertain kids!). Or if you don't have kids - the other side (somewhat segregated)... More

Poor quality, bland food. Hard to believe that the people responsible for cooking are trained chefs..... I'm a self-confessed bad cook and can honestly do better. Nachos are bland. Tasteless mince on burnt chips with sour cream and diced avocado, all for the bargain price of $20. Chicken schnitzel was beat that thin you had to squint to see it.... More

The acoustics are poor, in a group we were unable to carry on a conversation. If we moved outside then we were confronted with cigarette smoke.

Bago Tavern provides a wide range of options for dinner. The meals are consistently huge and always tasty to eat. I have eaten here a number of times and always enjoy the experience.

We were visiting Timbertown in Wauchope, Port Mac for the Christmas break 2016 from Sydney. We reached Timbertown on 24-Dec around noon, decided to have lunch before doing anything else. The only restaurant which stood out there was Bago Tavern. We went in, felt good instantly seeing the huge space of the restaurant. We ordered the grilled chicken burger, rib... More
