Smarter than your average country pub, this gastropub is definitely worth a look for its craft beers, quality menu and stellar beer garden. It has a few brews by local King River Brewing, and dishes such as kangaroo medallions, dry-aged Angus steaks and excellent squid ink spaghetti. Highlights of the shared plates include arancini (Italian-style rice balls) and chargrilled quail.
There's a concise children's menu and also very smart motel-style accommodation here for $140 a night. Weekdays offer the best rates.
