Pub in the Paddock – Feeding a pig beer!
The Pub in the Paddock has been around since 1880 and is one of the oldest pubs in Tasmania. It is very popular amongst the locals as well as passing through tourists, not only for their good pub food but for the fact that you can feed a pig a beer! Yep, that’s right, Priscilla the pig lives on the property and you can give her beer (watered down of course!) which she thoroughly loves.
Where is Pub in the Paddock
Located in Pyengana, a rural village around 40 minutes from Binalong Bay (Bay of Fires region) and also a short drive (around 15 minutes) to the base of St Columba Falls which also happens to be Tasmania’s highest waterfall.
Beer Drinking Pig
Priscilla has quite the name around Tassie. Many people come from all over the state to meet her. She loves visitors and you can’t visit the Pub in the Paddock and not purchase a beer for Priscilla. She loves it!
Lunch at Pub in the Paddock
If you’re out this way and looking for a bite to eat, you can grab yourself a pretty good pub meal. The service was great and we loved the look and feel inside!
