When we're in the area, and we're here reasonably often, since we have family in nearby Moss Vale, we like to call in at the Surveyor General for a quiet beer in a solid old Aussie pub. Situated in the little country town of Berrima, The Surveyor gets a lot of tourist trade in the summer, but is also a good solid spot for the locals. A sign near the bar outlines today's excuse for a beer, and depending on what happened in this day in history, you could be celebrating a past Aussie Ashes win or the fact that the queens second cousin three times removed once opened a branch of Marks and Spencer. Stone floors and an almost ramshackle feel to parts of the bar can transport you back, as can the occasional historical titbit with which the pub is adorned. Outside is a verandah area where you can sit and enjoy the sunshine. There's a decent amount of parking and families are welcome, so if you're around and fancy a spot of lunch and a quiet drink, make the detour. There's also plenty of holiday accomodation in and around the town, so a weekend away could be a good idea - get out of the big smoke and have a quiet one in the country!
