We found this to be a very comfortable bar. We enjoyed mixing with the locals, participating in the weekly meat tray raffles. The drinks list does not extend too far if you like white wine, with small bottles only.

Absolutely disgusting food, do yourself a favour and avoid. Staff lacked interest in bar and bistro also only took cash.

Should be a really good pub. Staff were very disinterested. Wine only served in small bottles so limited choice. Only running on cash must limit their take. eColi scare when we were here too. Ice from Dubbo and all water being boiled.

There is absolutely nothing nice I can say. The food was awful. $22 for a hamburger. Just look at the photo. Looks like the bun had been in the freezer and it was thawed out.

Thought I give this place a try.... do yourself a favour and don't! Very limited selection of food. What is on the menu is way overpriced! $22 for a burger! My husband had the beef burger. Who has burgers with multigrain rolls? The bread roll...More

A very welcome cold beer and a small selection of bar food was just what was required after a walk in incredibly hot temperatures. Staff friendly and helpful and the bar was clean and attractive.
