    WELDBOROUGH HOTEL: An Unusual Menu

    by balhannah Written Oct 7, 2009

    Menu at the Hotel

    On the way to St. Helens on the east coast of Tasmania, is Scottsdale. this is a rich dairying, agricultural and forest region.

    About halfway, (Lunch time) is the Weldborough Hotel. We stopped here for a light lunch.
    On reading the sign outside, we wondered if it was a good idea.
    Our lunch was quite o.k.

    Read what was on the Menu in my photo!.........
    Just, good, clean fun!!!!!

    We visited no restaurants in St Helens because we self-catered. We did visit the Salty Seas seafood restaurant and take-away though, for some fresh fish and chips. This is a seriously old-style non-commercial country takeaway, with its chalkboard menu outside and a pleasant chatty lady at the counter awaiting your order. If the weather was better than when we visited, the outside tables overlooking Medeas Cove, a backwater of Georges Bay, would be the place to eat.

    Now, ‘Salty Seas’ is probably as much a ‘must see’ as anything else. It also apparently operates as a fish market for the fishing fleet. As a result, it is able to offer totally fresh fish – how many fish’n’chips shops do you know where you can inspect large tanks of finny creatures fresh from the deep and still swimming around?

    Our fish fillets were from a supply on the counter, not direct from the tank. Still, it was as fresh and appetising as it looked in the box, but sadly the chips were a little on the soggy side. Full points for trying, but the overall result was not quite as good as we’d hoped.

    Quail Street Emporium and Coffee Headquarters: Great Coffee!

    This is a very interesting shop indeed....it's predominantly a Books, Collectables and Bric a brac shop but they also have an old fashioned sweet shop section (with Tasmanian ice cream & fudges too) PLUS, coffee bar and cakes.

    If the rich aroma of the cofee permeating the shop doesn't lure you in, the sight of the prices will.

    Unlike many combination shops I've seen, the coffee bar wasn't shoved into some dark cramped corner, but was in a nice bright, glassy area with comfortable seating and a nice view of the art gallery next door.

    Favorite Dish: The Iced Coffee with cream and ice cream was $2.80, which is very reasonable. It was SOO good I would cheerfully have paid a lot more.

    My husband is a real connoiseur of good, strong coffee, and was amazed he only had to pay $2.50 for a double shot Espresso, one of the best he'd had.
