Welcome to Tallwood. My 2nd home, my love & my passion.
Tallwood was created from the love of flavorsome food, sharing good times with friends and family and having a sneaky drink or two.
After extensive travels in Australia and around the world, this beautiful coastal town settled my family. We have a love for the south coast and wanted to give a little back. Tallwood is a comfortable and relaxed dining experience where you get to share great food, and we get to bring to life our belief in sustainable practices and community mindfulness.
The south coast has an abundance of amazing produce and strong harmonious relationships with local farmers ensure we keep the distance from paddock to plate to a minimum. We are lucky enough to have killer seafood, organically farmed livestock and sustainably grown produce right at our doorstep. My team and I work in partnership with our local suppliers and this is reflected in our seasonally changing menu.
Our food allows you to sample a little of what the south coast has to offer. Sit back, relax, grab a drink and let our staff guide you through our menu. If you can’t choose let us do the work for you.
Share, laugh, enjoy
