Sunday Sessions Music Line-up

We’re celebrating the onset of Spring with a relaunch of the Drom’s famous Sunday Arvo Sessions.

What better way to start warming up for the Summer than a full Sunday arvo live music programme?

We’ve lined up acts from all over the place – from as close as the next street away, to as far away as the UK.

We will be featuring each act in upcoming posts, and adding to this list in the coming weeks. Keep an eye on our Facebook Events page. And looking forward to seeing you groovin’ the Drom soon!




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!

The Drom is under new ownership since June 2018

Open 7 days from 11am til late



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, Kosciuszko Pale Ale and our very own Drom Ale, brewed locally. In all, choose from over 20 beers and ales.

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.

Summer menu


Due to the impact on the region of the recent bushfires we have paired down our menu for the remainder of the summer. This means we can be better organised to provide great quality, great value food for the remainder of the season. 


Popular favourites are still on the menu! These include our chef's own homemade chicken schnitzel – or why not make it a Chicken Tilba’ with tomato bbq relish, bacon and Tilba Tasty cheese from the local cheese factory. Sort yourself out with the seafood treat of the Fisho’s plate – beer battered flathead, prawn cutlets and calamari, served w/chips, salad and tartare sauce. 

We’ve also added some delicious Asian-inspired, healthy options. 


We always have a couple of delicious vegetarian dishes and can also provide gluten free alternatives on some products.  


We also have a kids menu. There’s something for everyone!


You’ll also find daily specials on the chalkboard in the bar.


​And on Sundays, we usually offer a great value roast as one of our popular specials. 


We’d like to stress again that wherever possible we use local suppliers and producers!

Our kitchen is open 7 days a week – we serve lunch from 12-2pm and dinner from 6pm-8pm every day.


We received a recommendation to have dinner at the Dromedary. We are delighted that we took their advice. The food was great, but the experience was even better. After dinner, we had a cocktail at the bar (ok beer and wine). The bartender, introduced us to the manager of the local cheese factory (she had an amazing international background) and a fellow from New Zealand, who helped us with our plans for the South Island. He also suggested a scenic route for the next leg of our journey. That is why you take suggestions and take the advice of local folks" - Tor, Nov 2019


"We stayed in Tilba for a couple of nights, and were delighted to discover that the Dromedary Hotel has had a huge makeover. Tilba has always been a lovely destination, but now it's even better. The pub has a newly furbished dining-room, and the chef serves extraordinary food. We had the venison and whole baked snapper, which were sensational. Gourmet meals at country pub prices. The beer garden and shed at the back provide live music on Sunday afternoons, and the staff is excellent. We'll be back!" - Liz, March 2019
