In winter not too many tourists, bar food is on all day. Staff friendly. Lots of quirky signs and memorabilia. Food was excellent. Parma for a farmer was worth supporting. If in the area you must call here for a cleansing ale or two!

If you're in Silverton there's not that much to see (let's be honest) so stopping in here is another must do! You could spend hours catching up on stories and checking out the memorabilia.

When visiting Broken Hill be sure to make the trip to Silverton to see the historic township and drop into the pub for a meal and refreshments. This is the venue for many movies and commercials!

What a great pub. So many stories of things that have happened there. Plenty of memorabilia to purchase to remember your visit. We were greeted by donkeys wandering down the street and outside the pub. Thanks for our memories

After the local mine tour we were keen to find a place for lunch and in Silverton, there’s not much choice! It didn’t matter as the food was really good and not expensive. It was a cold, windy day and sitting beside the fire inside...More
