The tavern's menu differs from regular pub style meals through having a focus on seafood. Pizza is also on offer and the staff are very friendly and helpful. There are indoor and outdoor dining options although the latter would suit only warmer weather. Booking is essential for dinner on Fridays's and Saturday's. A good selection of Tassie wines. If you... More

There are often unexpected treasures on holidays and this place was one of them! We ate here 3 nights in a row it was so good. My husband had the pan fried flounder which was enormous, fresh and perfectly cooked. Other meals and the pizzas were excellent too. Quite a treasure!

The staff were very friendly and the meals were huge and reasonably priced. This restaurant was recommended by our hosts at a local B & B and we were not disappointed.

We went to the Tavern for lunch and were elated to find the reasonable prices for quality food. Nice atmosphere with fast and friendly service. We had roast pork and veg and it was very large. The quality exceeded a lot of restaurants where we have dined. If you are in the area make sure it is on your list... More

Great people, good food and a well stocked up bar. The pizzas are great. Surprisingly they don't serve oregano with the pizza.

Unfortunately it's not pleasant walking through the pub with a family to get to the dining area. Food arrived in reasonable time but service non-existent. Food was reasonably tasty but rather expensive for what it was. Husbands pizza was undercooked. definitely better places to dine in the areas.

Great pub atmosphere, the food was well proportioned. We had a BBQ chicken pizza and was big enough for two! The fresh produce on the pizza made it that much more delightful. You could sit in the "beer garden" or outdoor seating area, or inside, with a bit of history and a bakery attached it was a one stop shop... More

We came here for dinner while staying nearby at the Piermont Retreat. The Bark Mill is a very popular place, so our suggestion is not to leave it too late. Our family enjoyed a game of pool while waiting for our food. The oysters and blue eye trevalla were the best. I dream about those oysters! Everyone enjoyed their meal... More
