The Great Western is directly opposite the Denison Boutique Hotel and offers a range of good quality pub food at a reasonable price. Try the steak. You won't be disappointed. Pub may become busy and noisy on bull riding nights.(Twice a week.)

Lovely staff, recommend the $24 rump and garlic mash, great quality. As a coeliac that constantly finds eating out a nightmare, they couldn't have been nicer and totally understand, without me having to explain, what my menu choices would be. Great relaxed tavern.
