Mum’s reading a book under a beach umbrella. The kids are exploring rock pools and splashing in the water. Dad is having a siesta – these are the ingredients for a perfect beach holiday, especially in a location as beautiful as Agnes Water. 

With Summer days so perfect, mealtimes become the cornerstone of the day; sometimes the only chance to spend quality time together. Why would you cook when Agnes Water Tavern has everything you need to sit back, relax and reflect on the day’s activities!

It’s an expansive venue, but with an intimate feel. Take your pick from the bar, dining room or wrap-around deck and beer garden under fairy lights.

Family owned and operated by Jack and Sally Michelmore (pictured) and Sally’s parents, John and Julie McCartney, Agnes Water Tavern serves up hundreds of meals each day that are not only quick to the table, but also delicious.

“We pride ourselves on the quality and freshness of our food, and the rest of the service and ambiance is built around that offering,” Manager Jack said.

“Our head chef is European, so there is a range of items on the menu to cater for our wide demographic, from classic pub favourites and kids’ meals, to something a little more special.”

It’s a great venue for a good time. There is an area outside for the kids to burn off some energy and live entertainment to get the crowd on their feet every Saturday night.

Stop by the attached Bottlemart to top off a great day with a nightcap at home. Jack and Sally have been steadily increasing their collection of fine wines and top shelf spirits to complement all the basics – with prices comparable to any regional city.

“We have a great range of products so people don’t have to worry about bringing drinks up to Agnes Water with them,” Jack said.

“When you need a quick gift for someone, or want to toast a special occasion or great stay in Agnes, we’ve made sure that we have every celebration covered.”
