Paused for a beer & lunch. Sat at the rear in the garden, which is an oasis. The staff were extremely professional & friendly & the whole experience was a joy. The scone & cheese was delicious, as was the Darling Brewery Beer!! A quirky place, which is well worth a visit. Thank you all!!

We drove through Darling on my birthday and decided to stop for breakfast. We were spoiled with delicious samon and scrambled eggs. Very friendly service and I am told they make the best pizzas on Friday evenings.
