Every bloke or blokess needs a place where they can unwind with a cool beer and good old chin wag with their mates or matesses. Here you’ll find tall tales being told, pool balls being shot, live sport on big screens and hearty food being savoured. And of course, it will all be washed down with life’s essentials – icy cold, thirst quenching beer.

Above the bar you’ll see a large motorbike which if you look carefully you’ll see its been made from bits and pieces sculptor Garry Dunn found around the property.

On the walls you’ll see Riverhead’s history – stories about people who lived here way back when. Now it’s up to you to make a few stories of your own.

We don’t take bookings for The Portage Bar unless you have a group of over 15 people…just come on in and find yourself a leaner. There is an outside smoking area and under veranda tables where you are most welcome to bring dogs.

If you have a large group (over 15 people), please contact us and we’ll set aside a couple of leaners for you inside the bar
