Recently awarded Yea’s best Pub and Bar by Restaurant Guru

Where authentic vintage Australian farm relics sit side by side with fine china and silverware. The décor (and the whisky) at Killingworth Hill Cafe represent a collection that is the product of decades of searching and dedication. It’s rustic, traditional Australiana with more than a smack of sophistication.

Drink in the history as you sample some of the finest drams you’ll ever come across. Discerning whisky lovers enjoy an experience that’s more than the sum of its parts.

Team Leatham, headed up by Garry and Lesley, host exclusive special events in the Bar to sate the appetites of guests looking for more than ‘just a drink’. Expand your knowledge and appreciation with a whisky masterclass, exploring everything from the influence of ingredients at origin, to formal tasting techniques.

Secluded yet social whisky evenings see friends and fellow connoisseurs share and discover new favourites in intimate environs. Or for an extra special occasion, book a private guest evening and build your own whisky adventure from the ground up.

Tasting is accompanied by a charcuterie board with the finest Australian, French, Italian cheeses and meats. These accompaniments are specially selected by an executive chef in collaboration with the Leathams to include flavours and textures that complement the whiskies. Salty, sweet, sour, bitter and umami delights take your enjoyment to another level.
