No Peter Dinklage sightings today—
The wedge-shaped, diminutive Mill Lane Tavern has been nestled literally at the edge of the railroad tracks in Rockaway since 1946, and epitomizes the classic townie bar.
The cult classic 2003 film The Station Agent, starring Peter Dinklage (of Game of Thrones stardom) was filmed in the Rockaway area— Green Pond Road serving as the main artery between the Newfoundland train station at its north end, and downtown Rockaway at its southern end. The Mill Lane Tavern gets to keep its name and full interior decor for the film, so we figured it was a two-for-one win to visit this spot for a pint.
