The Dirt on Nundle

Most enjoyable time was had by all on our long weekend trip to Nundle.

On our way up the New England Hwy we discovered the Pages River Cafe in Murrurundi. Beautiful quaint cottage with massive brightly coloured flags out the front. Dining in 3 rooms - we ate in the one with the fireplace. Delicious homecooked meals such as Greek lamb meatballs on rice (Jerm's choice) and burgandy beef pie with salad (mine).

Dessert was a Belgian chocolate souffle. To die for.

Of course we had to go there again on our way back - homemade trout pate (me) and chicken and leek pie (Jerms). Sat in the enormous back garden in the lovely sun. Bliss.

Here's a pic of the interior...

The Jenkins St Guesthouse, Nundle, was country comfort at its best. Friendly host and excellent service.

Our room had its own fireplace - much to Jerm's delight (many hours were happily whiled away trying to light the fire).

Food at the Cha Cha Cha restaurant also highly recommended (in fact the only place in town to eat aside from the ubiquitous pub). The place is run by the same people who own the Guesthouse and service again magnificent.

Prawn with chilli pasta (entree) was the highlight for me.

A warning though... servings are ENORMOUS.

Here's the complimentary breakfast...
