Location is great sat out on veranda and although it was a hot day the breeze of the river was great. Meal was enjoyable. Service excellent. Would definitely visit again when in the area.

This is a gorgeous old pub in a lovely location. Can highly recommend the seafood or prawn plates as offering quality freshness at a good price. Very pleasant venue to meet with large or small groups. A very enjoyable lunch!

LIFE'S MOMENTS: Angus steak bangers & mash I ordered yesterday from the wonderful Tumbulgum Tavern. Looks great doesn't it? Cost $19.00. That's expensive, but that's what I wanted. I excitedly hacked a snag in half. It was nearly raw. I cut the another two and they were also near raw. I pushed the plate aside and sipped my beer. Later,... More

Interesting pictures and memorabilia on the walls are worth a look. The meals were good quality and plentiful and a lovely cup of coffee afterwards. Menu seemed to have something for everyone.They were setting... More

Luv this place for Family occasions with our little ones in our Family. The kids playground is a big hit, the bird cages are popular as well. River views add to the quaint country Pub feel and it's very peaceful here 👍

This is a very well known pub/restaurant adored by the near locals and a good place to visit for visitors. An old refurfished pub with lots of history in a quaint village all by the river Tweed

This is a lovely place for lunch . The food is plentiful and fresh - the menu is a bit quotidian - there is potential to use the local cornucopia to present a more interesting menu . Relaxing , pleasant place

On the way back from Murwillumbah and the amazing Parsons bus route I was famished and was advised by the driver that the Tumbulgum Tavern was a great place to eat a bit expensive by local standards BUT if one wants seafood FRESH and not the frozen crap IT is well worth it. The cool refreshing breezes coming of the... More

This is by far one of the best country pubs we have had lunch at. With views of the Tweed River, we found it very relaxing and enjoyable. We spent several hours having lunch and relaxing in the outside seating area. The meals are pub style and we both enjoyed our selections. We went on a Wednesday, and were surprised... More
