A good venue for families visiting Swansea. Great staff very friendly and good quality meals, although it is consistent with the theme we are finding across Tassie i.e. more expensive than we are used to, whether food, alcohol or coffee. We would recommend Bark Mill...More

Great choice of food which didn't disappoint. Service was excellent as well. Open on a Sunday night which is great considering nothing else was!

We stopped here for a late lunch and were greeted by the lovely friendly staff. The array of pies, baked goods and sandwiches was amazing and we all had the benefit of having whatever we wanted - a range of pies, sausage rolls, Cornish pasties...More

Brilliant lunch and cost effective. A special $18 lunch deal for flathead tails & chips and scallops and the kids fish & chips was almost the same size. Janz by the glass was an extra treat.

Drove here on a recommendation of a friend just for the curried scallop pie. It didn't disappoint, what a delicious little morsel. Wish I could have bought a dozen to take home. Great little bakery.

When we were there, operating hours for the Bakery was from 6:00 am and breakfast from 7:00 am with lunch/dinner through to I think 8:00 pm and drinks until 10:00 pm. But best you check with them on arrival in the area.

It is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, should have it, but I would send them an email and ask. It might be a special menu.
