We had only moderate expectations given the remoteness, but were left disappointed. Good points are the location, extensive all day menu, ample seating and great gardens and outdoor areas. The breakfast though wasn't great. My wife and I ordered runny poached eggs with our meals....More

I asked for a double shot small flat white coffee. What eventually arrived was tepid coffee flavoured milk. The selection so food is pretty standard road side cafe. Try Rivers Cafe round the corner. It is much better when it is open

Stopped here on our way south and back again. We had burgers and they were big, juicy and utterly delicious. The coffees were good and hot.

With highway 1 closed because of slide damage, you end up going through Murchison. Beechwoods offered a good sandwich for the road. Barista fare was average.
