As the days warm up, can you imagine sitting by the side of the river at Tweed River House, enjoying the sweeping views across to Mount Warning, with full table service and sampling from a special cocktail list? The Lawn Bar is a new way to experience Tweed River House, and it’s due to open early–mid October. You won’t be actually on the lawn, rather, on comfortable chairs on the Lawn Deck, with shading, and there will also be an undercover area to keep you protected from the elements.

Restaurant manager and sommelier, Aaron Wigg, has crafted a special cocktail list for the Lawn Bar but you can still have the classics or choose wines and bubbles by the glass or bottle. The Tweed region doesn’t have a lot of European-style bars, where you can relax alfresco but still get classy table service, so it sounds like a winning idea.

GM Gregory Lording says it was partly inspired by the beauty of the space, but also because guests who had finished lunch often wanted somewhere to sit and chat over a drink, and other regular diners were interested in coming for drinks and some light food, without necessarily wanting to eat a full meal.

‘We will be taking reservations so people can be guaranteed a 90-minute spot, as well we will accept walk-ins subject to availability,’ Gregory says.

It will be open Friday–Sunday from noon to 6pm from mid-October.
