We enjoyed lunch here twice during a recent stay. The cider on tap was good and the coffee excellent. Food is fresh and made on site. Also has a WW1 memorabilia room for locals from the area which is very interesting.

A museum accompanies this cafe and cider bar. Apples have been grown by this family for over 150 years. They certainly know how to make cider. Apple, pear and cherry cider is excellent. The food offerings are tremendous for lunch.

A peek into Tasmanian Apple growing history, warmed by a cozy fire, with delicious local food and jams, is a must! The alcoholic ciders all contain some of Franks original apples. We took away the cherry - pear cider.. yum!!
