The Bowlo, Kempsey is the classic place for a casual snitty and ice cold schooner.

Over the years we’ve had some great memories here – and we can’t wait to make more. The Bowls Bistro is more than just a local watering hole – it’s where the young and old come together to swap stories and share a beer.

Open for lunch Wednesday to Sunday from 12pm to 2:30pm and Dinner Tuesday to Saturday from 6.00-8.30pm – it’s a guaranteed great time, with great food.
