It tempts us!
And our chefs love putting together inventive and delicious dishes with as much local produce as they can find. Chef Peter at Station Restaurant Parkes has put together a Spring menu which is getting rave reviews. The Asian-glazed pork cutlet is a standout dish but do save room for dessert.
The Palms Seafood Buffet on Friday and Saturday nights is getting rave reviews, and features an amazing array of delicacies, with plenty of options for seafood lovers and their land lubber friends. A terrific option for a crowd – large groups are welcome.
The end of the year is almost upon us and if you haven’t yet thought of booking that end of year event, staff party or Christmas gathering, now would be a good time to do so. Our restaurants welcome group bookings and we’re always happy to work with you to ensure the food, beverages and service suit your function.

If sporting events are not your thing, perhaps you’d be more interested in visiting our regional centres to savour the amazing produce on offer. There are some wonderful festivals coming up, providing a great excuse for a lazy country weekend.
Nosh Narrabri on 26 & 27 August aims to showcase products produced by local growers, food creators and beverage makers. The event promotes sustainable food production practices, and celebrates local creativity and talents and inspires people to support regional producers. So consider a trip along the Newell to Narrabri to experience some old-fashioned country hospitality. Nick and Sharon would love to welcome you to the Adelong for your weekend stay. https://www.noshnarrabri.com.au/
And you could continue on the Newell to Parkes in time for the Trundle Bush Tucker Festival. Taking place in Trundle the first Saturday in September every year, the event dishes up a day of fun for participants and spectators, featuring bush cooking competitions, billy boiling sprint, free bush tucker tasting, live bands and a wholesome program of bush entertainment. The 2017 Bush Tucker Day features country music sweetheart Beccy Cole, camp oven cooking demonstrations, bush tucker cooking competition and taste testing.

While you’re in the area, consider a trip across to Junee. This delightful little town punches above its weight for gourmet and organic offerings, being home to the Junee Licorice and Chocolate Factory, producing organic licorice – black and raspberry, and organic chocolate-coated products including nuts, ginger, coffee beans, sultanas and freeze dried strawberries. Yum! Sabina at Junee Motor Inn would love to host your stay and assist you with her amazing local knowledge. http://www.greengroveorganics.com.au/the-junee-licorice-and-chocolate-factory/
