We ordered soup of the day and roast chicken. To be honest the soup and the bread roll we were given would have been enough for most people. It was superb. The chicken too was delicious and all was washed down with a nice cold beer

We had Pizza from the wood oven and a noodle dish with a small beer at AUD 44.00. It's a pay at bar in-advance type establishment. They were quite busy so the service was a bit slow, but I'd don't mind waiting if the food is freshly cooked and reasonably good. The portions were quite large and the food was OK.

We arrived in driving rain and had a couple of the $12 lunch meals in the pub which were very good. Having spent more than $20 we were entitled to vouchers to see the Bark Mill museum for half price. This was mostly ho-hum, but the old bark mill machinery was interesting and there was a very good (and fairly new) presentation on the expeditions of Nicholas Baudin and Matthew Flinders. Together with a leisurely coffee in the attached bakery helped us fill in a couple of wet hours.

The Bark Mill Tavern is located on the main road on the outskirt of Swansea. It's a newly renovated pub offering a bottleshop, bistro, bakery, café, playground & a museum.

We were renting a beach house down the road at Nine Mile Beach & decided to dine at the Bark Mill Tavern due to the reviews written in our beach house visitor's book.

The tavern décor is rustic with a small bar & couches for those who want to just have a drink. The wood-fired Pizzas are a specialty as there is a large covered tin wood stove located in the middle of the tavern. We were tempted to indulge in the pizza's but decided to go for the Parma as IMO there is no better way to judge a pub but through their Chicken Parmigiana !

We ordered the Surf and turf, scotch fillet with prawns and scallops in a creamy garlic sauce & Chicken parmigiana with salad. The parmigiana was absolutely enormous there was no way I could finish it so my hubby was happy to help out. Hubby also enjoyed his steak.

Overall: There's nothing like having dinner at the local pub & we were impressed with the quality of the food & found the staff to be extremely friendly.
