Two weeks on the road holidaying throughout NSW and Queensland and we thought we would try the buffet at the Sporties Club in Dubbo . It wasn't our best decision whilst we were away . The barman was too busy on his iPhone and eating in the back office to offer any friendly service and when he finally did serve... More

We had a 7:30 sitting for 15 people and arrived on time. We had a lovely catch up but everything went downhill at around 8:30pm. My cousin was still... More

If you value quantity over quality then this place may appeal to you. For everyone else, save your money and go elsewhere. Some dishes were OK, but there were many that were below average.

After visiting this Club many times on the way through to either Brisbane or Melbourne, on the last visit found the the quality of the food had not been as good as previous, Have decided not to visit again.

Was expecting a better meal. Was over charged at reception area of bistro, then when said something the operator denied this, lucky that I had copy of receipt issued, still no apology after explained. Amount of seating limited due to number in bistro. Arrived at 6:30pm time and food variety was good with visual signs identifing each meal, had to... More

Fresh and cooked seafood variety of salads and fresh fruits. Great mixture of roast meat and veggies to Chinese dishes. Great variety of food for kids big and little. Nuggets melt in your... More

The total cost for 2 adults and a 10, 8 & 2 year old was $76. I wish that I had spent that money somewhere else! The buffet is not great. The only greens I could get had to be pulled out of a Chinese dish. The roast section was dry & the gravy was weird in colour and texture.... More
