CLASSIC TOWN CLASSIC PUB
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
HAVE A DRINK WITH US
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! (Post it on Insta to feature in our Bullshit Gallery!)
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 two of our own Tilba Brewing Co beers, the Palace Pale Ale and the Prospectors Amber Ale.
Our beers are created and produced in collaboration with another South Coast family business, Stoic Brewing.
And we always have the fridge stocked with an interesting selection of cans from our Gerringong-based partners.
We have over 20 beers and ales to choose from, including a zero-alcohol option.
If you're a member of the Resch's Appreciation Society, why not stop in to get your passport stamped - and if you come on a Wednesday between 4pm and 6pm, get a schooner for the price of a middy!
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. Try North of Eden or Nine Circles, both from nearby Pambula, or have a go at our own infusions; the deliciously sweet rhubarb-infused or the subtly citrus Buddha's Hand-infused. The rest are mostly Australian but there are a few doozies we’ve collected on our travels, from Scotland to Iceland. We serve them in gorgeous goblets with Capi tonic, lots of ice and a selection of fancy garnishes!
We also have a very carefully selected range of malt whiskies and bourbons. We're always adding new ones here - and drinking them! - so best to just call in and check them out yourself!
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.

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).
