Found this outdoor setting from a place in Murrumbeena. It's exactly the look we're after... very pub "beer garden!" It's now added to the wish list!
http://www.furnituresales.com.au/default.htm For the above table 1600mm x 900mm we're looking at $1095, and for matching bench seats 1500mm long $670 each. We think we might get some small bench seats for the end of the table too. All the pieces are custom made, so we can measure up and decide on sizes later. Love it love it love! I think this will be our Christmas present to each other!
