A mate and I pulled into Dungog about 4:45 on a Sunday afternoon, looking for a room with a couple of single beds. After a very warm welcome (any "5 star" would learn volumes from), with choice of rooms, we wandered downstairs for a beer, and to contemplate where to have dinner. Have it here. They don't advertise on TripAdvisor...

Very comfortable and clean accommodation. Away from the towns main street in a quiet location. Close to RSL and bowling club (short walk away). Ate in the Settlers Arms restaurant and was excellent. Although very busy, the service was prompt and friendly. Recommend for accommodation and a meal.

We used the voucher the first night of our stay in Dungog, and enjoyed the meal so much that we went back another night (paying for our own meal). The staff were very friendly, and the...

Wonderful beds, bathrooms etc all great, then we have the...

If you like a chef who understands food, not too crowded, amazingly good local produce, staff who know their trade and have great past experience. This is the pub for you. Accomodation is very clean, simple as pub should be but generous. A pub with heart, sophistication but completely relaxed

Loved our stay at the Settlers Arms. We felt really at home there. Our ensuite room was perfect, the bed was comfortable, there were plenty of little nooks to get comfortable in for conversation or just to settle down into with a book to read. Continental breakfast was good, bar service nice, with an interesting selection of beers. We had...
