We just went for a meal (we are not bowlers) the view was great; the food was great; the ambient atmosphere was great, there was a excellent singer providing ideal entertainment in the background.

We stopped at the Able Tasman directly across the road from the bowls club after a 12 hour drive and were looking for a quick and easy meal. The bowls club bistro had a series of bay maree's with the meals ready to serve. I had the sweet and sour pork with choice of sides and my wife had the... More

The bistro at Club Dubbo has a nice range of specials and regular dishes at reasonable prices. I have been there many times and have always enjoyed my meal. Staff are friendly and courteous.

We've had dinner in the Bistro several times in the past and always enjoyed it. We often drive between Brisbane and Melbourne with a night stopover at Dubbo, usually at motel across the road from the Club Dubbo so it has been convenient to eat there. This time, however, we were disappointed. Our main meals arrived at the table cold... More

Ended up in a nearby motel as most others were full. So came here by default. Not usually the sort of place i would choose. The bar service was very good, but the food service left a lot to be desired. Grumpy staff, very slow service, confused orders, overpriced mediocre food. Atleast it was a short walk to the motel.

My wife and I were staying in a motel near the club so thought it would be convenient for a drink and meal. My advice to anyone visiting the venue is to have a drink and look elsewhere for food.

Dined here several times, nice club serving typical club food. Meals were probably not quite big enough and reasonably expensive compared to other clubs. Efficient service however. Pretty standard fare.

Call it Bistro but according to me is more than a simple Bistro, I ate a great steak with vegetables, the meat was tender and flavorful. The staff is very kind and always ready to help you. When I'll come back to Dubbo I will return here and eat meat.
