WITH live music, beer, wine, cocktails and food galore, The George Tavern will satisfy even those difficult-to-please friends.

The George Tavern has been the stomping ground for locals for more than 30 years and supports Hunter Region suppliers for as much of its meat, seafood and vegetables as possible.

From breads and starters to oysters, prawns and scallops, salads, pasta, pizza, pub favourites, burgers and wraps, you'll be spoilt for choice at the bistro.

The George Tavern is child-friendly (with a playroom included in the bistro) and features live music every Saturday night.
