You’ve picked a fantastic time of the year to visit, with Spring weather feeling more like a tropical Summer getaway and your pick of fantastic local events to choose from. In the unlikely event that you get a case of Wednesday-itis we’ve put together some ideas to cure those hump day blues and get you smiling.
Head over to Cambus Wallace at Nobby Beach and sample their selection of fine whiskey accompanied by a dining experience that delights in all things whiskey inspired! Tuck into their Whiskey Wednesday special featuring whiskey glazed ribs, sirloin steak dish or arancini balls, and then sit back and enjoy a delicious cocktail. We highly recommend “The Old Man” martini to top it all off - a sumptuous blend of Ardmore highland single malt whiskey, vermouth, apricot, and smoked hickory bitters.
