The Comfort of strangers
When lockdown finishes, my recommendation is to have a nice glass of wine at Torquil Neilson's bar called 'The comfort of Strangers' on Mair street, Ballarat. It's just great!
I met Torquil on the set of Van Diemen's land back in 2009 so I was very pleased to see that he'd set up a wine bar in easy walking distance from my house. How thoughtful!
Torquil Neilson, a former film and tv actor, spoke to me about hanging up his actors hat, moving to Ballarat and opening an intimate bar 'The Comfort of Strangers' and how this decision changed his life.
