Back to the Fat Canyoners’ Good Grub Guide
Caves House – Jenolan Caves
There’s absolutely no justification to stop here. Just keep on driving to Hampton or Oberon.

The Royal Hotel – Oberon
We turned up late with a large group right as the kitchen was closing once, and instead of sending us away they called in another cook. It’s been my pub of choice ever since. Good food, big serves, affordable prices. Unfortunately they are now sometimes closed on Sunday nights, so make sure you phone ahead.

Peters Cafe – Oberon
Good quality takeaway, and will even take phone orders if you want to save time while passing through. Best of all, it has a wood fire to keep you cosy when it’s cold outside.

Dj’s Cafe & Takeaway – Oberon
Ultimate food regret. A rump steak, medium rare, was ordered. What arrived was something tougher than an old pair of Scarpas. It had clearly been defrosted in the microwave for too long, so had already half cooked, then thrown onto the hotplate where the end of the cremation took place, in a sea of fat.

Make a submission to the Good Grub Guide:
This guide is based on the first-hand experiences we’ve had, along with feedback from other bushwalkers, canyoners and outdoor enthusiasts. The more people that provide suggestions, feedback, and personal experiences, the more useful the guide will be for all of us.
When making a submission, think about the factors that make a place particularly convenient following a trip. Is it open reasonably early or late? Is it located close to places you’re likely to drive through? Are the staff friendly and welcoming, particularly when it involves dirty, stinky, outdoors-people? And perhaps most importantly, does it have good food at affordable prices?
