U3A held its Christmas breakup at the iconic Barnawartha Star Hotel on Wednesday, 28 November. What a find this Hotel is. It's affable owners, rod and Ann Hawking, are in the process of renovating the interior's grand proportions and transforming the small Beer Garden area outside the French Doors. We spotted quite a few weary Victorian Great Bike Riders seeking refuge in or outside the Hotel for a well earned drink and a break. Our 2-course Christmas meal was delicious and service prompt and efficient. The Hotel has an extensive wine list of local wines to accompany meals. Our thanks must go to Noel, Heather and Keith, Benalla Bus Lines and of course Barnawartha Hotel for a very enjoyable break up. We hope to return...
Members who have registered for the Christmas lunch on Wednesday 28 November please note that the venue has changed to Barnawartha Pub, 25 High Street, Barnawartha.
The bus leaves the Benalla Bus Depot at 11 am.
The change of venue means that BYO as previously publicised does not apply. Drinks at bar prices.
