Venue type: Pub
Don't be fooled into thinking the initial first room is all there is - as nooks and crannies on the other side of the bar await. And bells will be ringing for fans of the defunct Australian series The Sullivans, because this cosy, non-pretentious pub was the characters' local watering hole, and many a scene was filmed here. Enjoy a counter meal or sit out the front in clement weather.
Particularly cosy a pub, and recommended for those that enjoy their ambience. One of those pubs full of little bits and pieces. Lovely.
Great pub to relax in and watch the world go by. Good tucker, too. I had some great pics of the Retreat Hotel but they have all been nicked by Pommie fans of the Sullivans. Damn, means I will have to go back.
