Very popular for the beef and barra meal served nightly. I enjoyed barra bites which were delicious and fresh.

We stopped to see the historic pub and ordered wedges and beer. Good food and good service. But everything hanging off the pub is dirty and dusty and just not really very nice at all. It's certainly nothing to rave about...

In 2 months roaming the outback, this was the best food I found and the most interesting roadhouse by a long shot. Saying that it's in the middle of nowhere would be putting it lightly. I'm glad I didn't miss this one.

Usually stay at the Hiway Inn but this time decided to go to the pub. Wow, had the beef and barra meal and loved it. Barra cooked beautifully,steak was so tender and tasty. Also cooked to perfection. The music was a bonus and extremely entertaining....More

Hugely popular pub with music and a great meal trade, the caravan park was chocka. Would have stayed if there had been a suitable room. Definitely on the list for next time.

Quickly call through on our way to darwin. Great quirky pub. Sad we didnt have time for a meal. Enjoyed our beer and looking at all the things left from other travellers.

Stopped by this iconic place for some lunch and to take some photo's. We both ordered "Barra Burgers" which they really should rename to something like "Lettuce Roll". The bun itself is huge but it is 90% lettuce with the odd spattering of other salads...More
