Found this lovely little country town on TripAdvisor, very small little town on the river. People are friendly and a few little shops: art gallery, bookshop and a few others. We stopped for the scones and it was well worth it, the scones were beautiful...More

Stop in Clarence Hotel. Salt and Pepper squid and chilli prawns beautiful. Salad dressings light and tasty. For those with a sweet tongue plenty to choose from. Best kept secret. Backs onto garden setting on the river. Do yourself a favour and call in

Opening Hours Breakfast and Lunch 8.30am - 2.30 pm (7days) Dinner 6.00pm - 8.30pm Tues- Sat Outstanding Coffee This is a delightful cafe/restaurant that provides excellent low priced meals in a setting on the banks of the Clarence River. It is right beside the Pacific Highway and is an excellent break point for those driving the Sydney-Brisbane highway. We have eaten there twice in the past week and were most impressed. We think it should be better known, especially as the service is especially friendly.
