You Just Can’t Beat Going to Your Local!

There’s something about going to your local that just feels good.  Going to the bar to be served by someone you’ve known since they were in primary school (and you’re friends with their mum), and running into people you’ve been meaning to catch up with for ages, is all part of the experience.

Whether you are local or not, Canungra Hotel offers the great country hospitality you expect from Canungra – as well as meals to satisfy all appetites.

My Country Escape

We had a ‘mum’s night out’ a small gathering mainly of Class of 2019 mums – and let’s face it, there was a lot to celebrate – we survived the high school years!

With a table of 10 booked, in what I still call the new area (yes I remember it before the booths went), it was a good gathering on a reasonably busy night.

The meals came out quickly for such a busy night.  Orders ranged from pizzas to steak and specials from the board.  The Chilli Salmon from the specials board was amazing – salmon cooked to perfection and more than enough food.  Even though they don’t promise that pizzas will come out with main meals, the couple of people who ordered pizza got them in good time – and had enough to take home to partners!

The menu consists of a range of pizzas, steak, pasta and the largest selection of Chicken Parmigiana I’ve seen (highly recommend the ‘Frenchy’) as well as snacks such as chips and gravy or sweet potato fries.

I love the atmosphere of the Canungra Hotel and for a fun, relaxed night out in town you really can’t go past it.

Canungra Hotel is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.  There is live music in the public bar most Fridays nights and in the restaurant most Sunday afternoons.

The Canungra Hotel can also cater for functions.  For enquiries and bookings phone 5543 5233 or like the Canungra Hotel Facebook page.
