1861 is Cooma's best kept secret. This was my second visit - round trip was 200km+ !! Will certainly bring friends for my third visit. It's worth the trip!!

Fantastic experience, staff were extremely polite, friendly and cheerful. Table size was perfect not too small, cloth napkins which is a bonus and sized ones as well. The food was excellent, what you would expect to eat at any fine dinning restaurant, the price was only slightly overpriced for the area but quality of food and service definetly make ip for it. Do yourselves a favour and book at table we will definetly be going again.

great dinner experience. Both food and ambience. They managed to maintain the atmosphere of the previous travellers rest. Really a unique place in Cooma. Good luck. looking forward to the opening of the whiskey bar.

Loved the ambience. A little bit dusty inside, spider webs, etc. Loved the outlook. The food was above standard fare & there is a good wine list. The young waiter, Sam, was very good & attentive to our needs. It's good to see an effort to create a restaurant, rather than an eating house. We will be back.
