It's all about the garden at this very old school, country-feel pub

This heritage-listed 1880 pub was first built to serve the workers constructing the Prospect Reservoir, and sits just across the road from the dam. The real star here is the terrace and back garden, which is huge, with lush, jungly fig trees and a corrugated iron shed-bar up back.

The menu is heavy on the pub-grub classics, including a huge golden pork knuckle that, when it whizzed past, gave us immediate menu-FOMO.

There’s not a lot on the drinks list for booze-nerds to rhapsodise over, with a standard range of macro-brewed lagers, and wines in all three colours. But if you’re looking for a cold beer and a big meal in a pretty setting, it’s got you sorted.
