It’s always refreshing to walk into a hotel restaurant and immediately feel at home. The Poolside restaurant is understated and low key, with seating scattered through to the garden area next to the pool. The hotel originally dates back to the 1960s, and it remains a popular meeting place with locals. During Cyclone Tracy a number of vehicles were blown into the pool and visitors today can view scenes from those tumultuous times with a series of historic photos on the wall near the bar. The whole hotel was recently extensively refurbished and the new decor is casual with a tropical theme including cane furniture, comfortable lounges and cool neutral colours.

The restaurant offers both set price meal deals as well as an all day menu that includes pasta, steak, Asian stir-fried dishes, club sandwiches and burgers. The set price meals focus on home style “comfort food” such as shepherd’s pie, farmhouse sausages with mash, risotto with char-grilled vegetables and beer battered fish and chips. The wine list is modest but varied with a focus on South Australian and New South Wales wines, with many also offered by the glass.
