Hello, would Bushmans Bar be open for NYE 2016 and if so would it have an atmosphere? We are travelling with kids so definitely wouldn't see midnight in but would like a fun night out. Rachel

Hi. We are going to be in Strahan over Christmas this year 2015 - just wondering if you will be open for lunch on Christmas Day? If not, do you know of somewhere that might be?

Sorry cannot help. We were there at the beginning of the 'off season' and they were trading every day. Hope they are open for you as it is a friendly place with great food.

Why were you not open last Sunday night (long weekend) while the town was packed and screaming for choices? The apparent "town owners" were keen to say it was all due to penalty rates. Personally I would of paid any premium to eat at your establishment rather than eat the muck we were served elsewhere!! (A common theme in a restaurant where you wait over an hour to be seated and another 40 minutes for food). I shall await your response before I review the other places. Cheers, Pete
