Busy Corner Milk Bar – Lithgow
A great little shop that has operated in the same spot for more than half a century. Good takeaway food, cheap prices, friendly service. Where else can you get a burger and chips for $6!
(02) 6351 3270 – 52 Main Street
Grand Central Hotel – Lithgow
You can judge a pub by its chicken parmi, and this place serves up a nugget with some tomato paste. Friendly locals-only pub with quick service, but the food is woeful. (A meal here was the inspiration for this guide).
(02) 6352 5954 – 69 Main Street
Papadino’s Pizza – Lithgow
Who can say no to a pizza after a hard day in the bush. Friendly owners who are not apposed to serving stinky, scratched-up canyoners. Old-school record player and collection of 60’s, 70’s & 80’s records. Eat-in or take away. Can be a little slow when busy so ring ahead if in a hurry.
(02) 6353 1455 – 65 Main Street
Secret Creek Cafe – Lithgow
Situated in a wildlife sanctuary out the back of town, it has a nice ambience and good coffee. While the meals are expensive, they look great and all organic, free range, and use lots of local produce.
(02) 6352 1133 – 35 Crane Road
Workies – Lithgow
Good food, including a ‘cook your own steak’ style bistro. Not too perturbed by smelly dirty canyoners and a little more relaxed on the whole dress code thing than most clubs.
(02) 6350 7777 – 3 Tank Street
McDonalds – Lithgow
No beer and terrible food, but it is a good meeting place and is open 24 hours for when your trips run into the wee hours.
Cnr Great Western Highway & Main Street
Royal Hotel – Capertee
This place brings together all the best elements of a good country pub. Great food, good prices, friendly atmosphere, and even some couches that you can chill out on after a hard day. Highly recommended!
