Serving fresh, local produce to locals and tourists 363 days of the year! Come and enjoy some fair dinkum old fashioned pub grub. Our bistro food can be enjoyed throughout the hotel and we welcome everyone! Enjoy the famous $12.50 Lunch special and a pot of icy cold beer perched on one of the Central's famous footpath stools. You may like a steak sandwich on the deck watching the footy or the Central's famous seafood platter and a cocktail in the Verandah Bar. What about bringing your family for our mouthwatering steak and seafood dishes served in our Garden Bar under the palms and sails? Family friendly with high chairs and kids menu available
