If you’re up for a road trip in search of really excellent fare in a truly spectacular location, add Tweed River House to the very top of your list. The magnificent manor, originally constructed in 1907, has been given a new lease on life as a beautiful bistro and bar. Perfect for long, leisurely lunches and delightful date nights, Tweed River House offers expansive views across tropical cane fields to the majestic Wollumbin and Border Ranges. The menu has been compiled by executive chef Joseph McGrattan, who has dug deep into his classical European training in Michelin-starred restaurants, to deliver a contemporary culinary experience that has earned Tweed River House a coveted Chef’s Hat in the 2022 Australian Good Food Guide Awards. Diners can expect an ever-evolving selection underpinned by vibrant, seasonal flavours of locally grown, organic and Indigenous ingredients from Northern Rivers’ rich bounty. Take a peek at the menu here, however, the bistro offers ‘prix fixe’ with two-, three- and five-course options. For a truly elegant experience, opt for the sumptuous nine-course degustation menu, which is served exclusively in the magnificent chandelier private dining room and takes diners on a carefully curated culinary journey. Tweed River House has added something pretty special to Murwillumbah and surrounds’ ever-growing collection of roadtrip-worthy eateries.
Located 25 minutes from Coolangatta, 45 minutes from Broadbeach and 90 minutes from Brisbane, Tweed River House is well worth the day trip. Jump over here to book a table, or see more on its Facebook and Instagram pages.
