If Paronella Park is your destination that day and/or overnight like it was for us, then PP's cafe is fine for a light lunch but its "brother" the pub, just down the road is the PERFECT place for dinner. We returned to Paronella Park for a night tour and stayed in its new van park accom. And it was EXCELLENT!!... More

Had a sweet little stop in here, boys at the bar we're super friendly, kids were entertained, had a sample of some of the local brews. Can't complain at all.

The veggie burger is perhaps the best I have ever tasted! Chefs are incredible! We spent the count down to new years here, bar staff are friendly, great atmosphere, looking forward to visiting again (Please don't change that veggie burger, its a winner!)

Had the best battered fish with chips here. I didn't expect much for a small pub but was surprised at how good it was.

Stayed at Paronella Park & had a few dinner, drinks & games of pool at Mena Creek Hotel. Beer was cold, steak was good & the pool table was one of the best I've played in in a hotel. Dead straight with no dips, curves or bumps. Did not see what accom was like so can't comment on that.

We had just finished a very humid tour of Paronella Park and Mena Creek was the closest for a drink and meal (walking distance) We had a great meal and that beer sure went down well!

After doing the night tour at Paronella Park, it was great to simply go across the creek and grab a great feed with some ice cold beer! If you're keen on craft beer, have a chat to the publican!
