The Dromedary Hotel is a gorgeous old country pub dating from 1895 located in the beautiful National Trust village of Central Tilba, on the far south coast of NSW.

Surrounded by unspoilt Australian bush, in the shadow of the dramatic Mount Gulaga, ‘The Drom’ is a must-visit destination for anyone touring the unspoilt Eurobodalla region.


Where the lush green mountains of the Gulaga National Park meet the golden sands of the Pacific, sit on the verandah and soak up the ambience of Tilba's most iconic building!

In between drinks, we're busy restoring the pub to look better than ever!  Follow our progress and some history tidbits via our Tilba Pub Renovation Facebook Page




Grab at spot at the bar or take your drink out onto the front porch at the ‘top of town’.
Pose for the paparazzi at Bullshit Corner, one of the most photographed spots in town!

Enjoy Australian beers and wine, as well as a broad selection of international and Australian spirits.

Our six taps currently feature Resch’s, Carlton Draught, Toohey’s Old, Great Northern mid-strength, as well as our very own Tilba Brewing Co beers.


We're currently serving the Palace Pale Ale, delivering bold tropical flavours backed by a light malt body. 23IBU. 5%ABV.


On our guest tap we're currently serving Stoic Brewing's IPA, a heavily dry hopped IPA with a long, sweet finish bursting with notes of passionfruit & citrus. 45IBU. 6.5%ABV.

Tilba Brewing Co beers are made for us by Stoic of Gerringong, NSW.


We have over 20 beers and ales to choose from, including a zero-alcohol option.

We offer excellent wines from some of Australia’s best-known wine-producing regions. We’re constantly revisiting our wine list, adding new labels every 6 weeks or so. And we keep our prices reasonable, making great wines accessible to all.

We’re massive gin fans at the Drom! There’s always around 20 to choose from. They’re mostly Australian but there are a few doozies we’ve collected on our travels, from Scotland to Iceland.

We also have a very carefully selected single malt whisky offer.

We believe in bringing the best of regional Australia to our customers. As well as many of the old favourites we are always trialing new and interesting new products from NSW and further afield.

We’d love to see you!

OPEN 7 DAYS – from 11am til late


Book ahead to avoid disappointment! We are very busy at lunch and dinner times, particularly through peak periods such as school holidays and public holidays, Christmas/NY, January, and Easter. We strongly recommend that you book a table to avoid missing out.


We take lunch reservations at midday only, and serve lunch 12pm-2pm. We serve dinner 6pm-8pm and take reservations for two sittings; 6pm and 7.30pm. Due to the challenges facing our business at the present time, caused by huge visitor volumes and staff shortages, we may reduce our service times. We also may temporarily cease offering takeaway. We apologise in advance if this is the case when you visit.


We also offer most items on our menu as a takeaway option. Feel free to pop in to order and have a drink while you wait, or phone through your order and drop in to pick up. (Delivery not available).
