Nins Bin - Beverage selection

Anyone here knows what sort of drinks to they sell at Nins Bin (if any). Would not mind some beer or wine to go with my crayfish and wondered if I have to BYO.

    Can't tell, have never paid attention... But I can check it out when I go there next time, probably in Jan or early Feb.

    When will you travel?

    Wow! That brings me back! This place has survived that long. Amazing! Its been around forever, and if it is like it used to be, I see no reason why they would object if you brought a bottle or two with you. Enjoy!.....d:o)

    Just for contrast, I have not been there for over 30 years........d:o/

    I checked it out earlier this week. They have cold drinks and Nescafé - and cold drinks means Coke, Sprite and Fanta. Can't remember if they had water. They sure do.

    Normally such food stalls are not licensed. So best you bring your own. But do not get too carried away, as you should not drink too much alcohol when you drive along on this narrow and winding road. Do not forget about the drink-driving limit! But surely a glass of wine would not be a problem with the crayfish.

    There are lots and lots of tables along the stretch of coast where Nin's Bin is located. And there were a real lot of people queueing for crayfish and mussels.

    They accept eftpos and credit cards - because the food is not exactly cheap ;-))
