THE BEGINNING OF MARCH marks the end of Summer and the start of Autumn, for us on the Far South Coast the best season of the year – nice weather and the sea is usually a lovely temperature for a swim.
The music continues through March. This month we welcome some acts back for their first shows since we reopened – Bob Porter’s Down South Syncopators, The Novellas and Sam Martin and The Sundowners over Easter. Acclaimed singer / songwriter Fred Smith and Susan O'Neill (from Ireland) will be here for the first time.
Gary and his kitchen crew have the time to have more specials available. They are looking at a revamp of the menu for Autumn.
Many of you will have met Emma, our licensee / manager. Emma did a terrific job getting the hotel set up prior to reopening but sadly she has had to leave to deal with some nasty health issues. We all hope she makes a full recovery and is able to return here in the future.

The TROVE, the antique, art & collectable shop is next door to the hotel.
The shop opens Fri. to Mon. 10.00am - 4.30pm
 or by appointment on other time. 
Check out the Cool Room Gallery created in the old bottleshop coolroom.
