Clarendon Arms Hotel
Built in a commanding position in the centre of Evandale on the site of convict cells and a watch house, this historic two-storey pub was first licensed in 1847. It has been a tourist attraction since 1978 when artist Arne Brewster began depicting important events in the life of the town in murals on the pub’s interior walls. His art makes the dining room a fascinating place to enjoy a meal. There is standard pub tucker on offer, so once you’ve browsed the ‘gallery’ you can tuck into the pub’s excellent signature dish – a flavoursome beef and Guinness pie.
