3. The Argyle Hotel
Before this Moss Vale pub became a watering hole serving the self-proclaimed, best beer in the district, it had a long historical connection to Moss Vale. Originally constructed in 1868, it served as a post office and general store until transformed into a hotel in 1873. The Argyle Hotel has a $12 lunch special Monday to Friday and has Bistro hours from Monday to Saturday 11.30 am -3 pm, reopening for dinner service 5 pm – 9 pm. Sunday hours are 11.30 am - 8 pm.
4. Wine Mosaic Lounge
Australia is known for many things, and having an internationally recognized one is high on the list. We proudly recommend ending your day with a glass, or two, at the Wine Mosaic Lounge. With 60s-inspired decor and casual or formal dining, it has a spot and a glass for anyone. If you don’t have time to linger, the Wine Mosaic Lounge also has a bottle shop on site for you to bring home a bottle, or two, from a memorable Moss Vale pub.
