Superb food, bird life, and heritage in a tranquil location
Polly's Country Kitchen in the Gold Coast Hinterland provides a welcome stop for hungry travellers on their way to or from the beautiful hikes and trails of Springbrook National Park. Polly's Country Kitchen is a licenced restaurant that visitors can simply drop into, or book in advance for events such as parties or weddings.

I recently visited Polly's Country Kitchen with my ever-hungry teenage son, whose eyes lit up when he saw the menu that included all-day breakfast options, lunch choices, desserts, and of course, milkshakes.

As a result of Covid-19, guests are asked to sign in before being seated as part of their CovidSafe plan. This barely took any time at all, and our food arrived with a minimal wait once we'd made our choice from their generous menu. We found Polly's Country Kitchen with its peaceful environment a lovely place to relax and refuel after our hike. Before we left, we explored some of the heritage photographs and artefacts displayed around the restaurant. Without a doubt, we will be back!

This is a wish I was there place Meg, to enjoy the freedom to go to such places instead of being locked down in Victoria. I have just baked a batch of scones, but they don't look like the one in your article. Maybe the next batch ... Neil.
