cobblestoneThere is one place in town that is my ABSOLUTE favourite.

Cobblestone Lane is the most deliciously delightful location in the Central West offering local ingredients and wine in the most beautiful ambience in relaxed surroundings.

Owned and operated by lovely husband/wife duo Heath and Elissa Smith, Cobblestone Lane offers contemporary Australian dining at its absolute finest.

Once you step inside the doors of the striking George Street building you are welcomed with open arms by brilliant service, delicious food and great local wine.

Cobblestone Lane has been offering people of Bathurst and surrounds an oasis of fine dining for almost nine years.

The staff are efficient without being uncomfortably overbearing. They have a wonderful knowledge of the food and can make sure your dining experience is a pleasurable one.

Heath and Elissa are well known in the Bathurst community and are always the first to sponsor school fetes, sporting teams and community events whenever possible. You know that you are supporting the ‘local guy’ when you choose Cobblestone Lane.

Sometimes it is so easy to take for granted the wonder that surrounds us.

We are so very lucky to live in a such a wonderfully, beautiful and resourceful part of Australia.

Orange is the food basket of New South Wales and offers some of the best wines and food that Australia has to offer.

This short video reminds us locals just how lucky we are to live in such a remarkably gorgeous part of the world.

Why not grab some friends and head local this weekend?.

{Keep Calm and Blog On} The Girl Has Sparke visited our Millthorpe

The Girl Has Sparke is our latest blog crush.

Written superbly from a lovely twenty-something Canberrarian named Megan it is classy and hilarious and simply good reading.

Our favourite article so far is this one -> Foodies Guide to Weekend in Millthorpe. Admittedly, we might be a little bit biased due to her obvious love of Millthorpe which is situated in our own backyard, but she is brilliant in her review of a perfect little weekend location.
