about the motel



Darcy’s Bar and Grill

Our fully licensed Darcy’s restaurant is open from Tuesday nights through to Saturday nights and has a menu centred around Stonegrill dining. This healthy option is popular with those choosing to dine with us as there is no oil involved with the process. Your choice of meat, seafood, game or the vegetarian option is brought to your table on a hot stone (heated to 450 degrees) and you can then grill your choice to your own requirements.

The benefit is that the meat and or seafood used is trimmed of all its fat and it stays hot for a longer time due to the heat of the stone used. Options include grain fed porterhouse steak and kangaroo fillet. But the Stonegrill option is not the only dining option on the menu. as we have a range of dishes and so feel free to download our current menu here and contact us to make a booking as reservations are required to avoid disappointment.

Please note that there are times when we may close due to a private function or annual leave and so ring ahead and check our opening times. If you have a larger group or special occasion then would be delighted to assist wherever possible.

Please note that there may be times when we provide a self serve buffet due to an in-house group or conference and that could be either a continental style buffet or full cooked buffet.
