Head to Bangalow to lunch with the beautiful people
It's funny how you get used to somewhere being a sleepy little village and then you go there a few years later and it's transformed. This is how I feel about Bangalow. I've a great love for northern New South Wales and its funny eclectic combination of crazy hippies and uber cool trendsters. Somewhere along the way Bangalow seems to have aligned itself with the latter of the two and has sprung up a ton of cute little eateries and niche market shops.

On one of our many drives to the region we stopped in to Bangalow and settled on the Dining Rooms at the Bangalow Hotel. The local watering hole offers a rather adventurous menu for a pub which can be ordered in the main public bar or, for a few dollars extra, via table service in the dining room. The day was disgustingly hot and the breeze was better on the dining room deck so the dining room it was for us.

Ok, maybe they were having a bad day because of the heat or something but to start with I was seriously questioning the $2 table service surcharge because, honestly, there wasn't a lot of service going on. When we finally did get to order, I went for the chicken, avocado and quinoa salad, and my partner went for his go-to meal of a beef and bacon burger. No drink orders at the table though, for those you still have to go to the public bar.

They may have made a couple of mistakes with our order, but, thankfully service improved a notch and they were dreadfully apologetic. The meals were also admittedly quite good and very generously sized. Admittedly I do cringe a little at the concept of paying $20 for a glorified hamburger but Meat-o-saurus assured me that, by burger standards, it was very good.

So, Bangalow hotel, as pubs go, definitely a nice one. That said there looks to be quite a few lovely options in the main street and I think next time we go we might just be pursuing one of those.

Until next time,
