How long since you've had a fresh pea from the pod in a restaurant... Well you get them here with lovely fresh and flavoursome food... clearly made will great concern for value and homestyle care... And what blast the host is... And don't forget to ask for the Orgasmic Cheese Cake or the Apple Crumble..... yum...

If you visit strahan make sure you visit this place at least for 1 meal. Situated just at the seafront it was the first restaurant we noticed . The staff were welcoming and very helpful . I loved the lamb curry and the beef casserole .

There are quite a few dining options in Strahan,surprisingly but Bushman's is probably the pick. Location wise it sits in prime position right on the roundabout at the wharf, so it's pretty hard not to notice. Good homestyle cooking is what they promise & deliver with everything made on the premises. Prices are very reasonable compared to a couple of other eateries in town & the staff love nothing more than to sit & have a chat with customers. It was pretty cold when we were there & the fireplace made for some welcome respite. Fully licensed & good value with probably the best feature being it's a relatively small menu to save too much deliberation . I had a delicious beef casserole for $20 with heaps of vegies on the side.

We arrived in Strahan and had no accommodation booked. We kept driving past the Bushmans Bar and Cafe glancing at the restaurant working out our plans for the day and then saw a sign re accommodation. I went in and the lovely Rochelle offered to take me for a look at the room upstairs. We went up and I instantly said yes! The room was amazing, so homely, clean, inviting, cosy and a beautiful window seat which we used the whole time, glancing at the amazing view of the Strahan Cruisers!
Bumpy then welcomed us saying we are part of his family. A fabulous, caring and interesting man who made our stay so much more enjoyable. They offered us a complimentary breakfast, and up we went to our room and settled in and spent the next hour relaxing and gazing out the window.
The next 2 days we were in and out having a drink between exploring or dining for dinner. The meals are fabulous. Dale makes the best carbonara and the best curry. GO THERE!!
We booked on the World Heritage Cruise, directly opposite from Bushmans, Kate and co were ever so helpful, a must for all who go to Strahan.
Thank you Bumpy for making our weekend trip away so easy and enjoyable! Thank you too Bumpy for J's gift we smelt huon pine all the way home and it's now a special display in her room! Divine!
Did I mention that Bushmans Bar and Cafe have a fire place? We will see you again soon Bumpy, a huge thank you once again!

Stayed here for two nights this month with overseas visitors. The owner/manager "Bumpy" is such a colourful character. He made us feel so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was great and the meals we had there were enjoyed very much. It's rare to find someone who obviously loves his work and will go out of his way to make guests feel welcome. As Bumpy told us, when you stay with him, you become family. Thanks so much.
