Eat, drink, and more at these local businesses in Lorn

Located quite literally a short hop, skip, and a jump from the centre of Maitland, sits Lorn, a cosy, quaint, residential village with greenery galore.

This community-driven suburb is like taking a step back in time with beautiful bungalow-style cottages and Victorian homes lining the streets, and residents wander the area with their dogs and wave to fellow Lorn locals.

Driving over the bridge, it truly does feel like you’re a million miles away from the centre of Maitland, making it the perfect little spot to explore something new. Whilst it may be small in size, the area is home to a number of great local businesses, including numerous eateries and even a roadside farm produce stall.

Belmore Road Grocer 

This cosy little local grocer stocks all the very best local produce alongside barista coffee and daily lunch specials. Featuring a collection of great Hunter Valley wines, fresh local fruit and veg, a fully stocked deli, and a selection of groceries, Belmore Road Grocer is the perfect one-stop-shop.
