I visit the War Horse regularly so it's about time for a review. The beer. I understand the beer is brewed in-house and it is very good an reminds me of beers/ales I've drunk in New Mexico, USA. I regard it as an ale rather than a lager. I think there are only two types on tap, or at least... More

The Warhorse is an odd sort of place. The surroundings show efforts to create an American West kind of feel, sadly some of the ornaments are a bit plasticky. The resulting ambiance is a wee bit confused: there's John Wayne cut outs, plastic mounted deer heads and some decently authentic old movie posters. The entrance sports a great looking covered...

Great bar on Wharf Street.....this place is decked out like an American Saloon, great music, great food and the decor is something to see. The Buffalo wings and Ribs are some of the best ive tasted. Had a great afternoon on our second last day in Vanuatu. Wish we had found this little gem earlier.

A bar full of characters but essentially great drinks and food. The buffalo wings are yum! Watch out for people grabbing wallets and bags on the outside tables though...

Had read about this restaurant in local tourist book. We thought we would try somewhere different ... it certainly was. Great movie memorabilia. Beer was cold and good. Meal was rushed we no longer finished our entree ... before the chef rang the bell for our mains. In fact he kept on ringing it, she asked if she could bring... More

The food here was amazing and the service time was extremely fast. The portion sizes of the main meals were giant! My husband had the mixed grill. The pork ribs were amazing. The meat just fell of the bone as did the beef ribs. Great value for money. We will definately be back. Thanks for a great lunch!

The best ribs ever. If the bar is busy service is a bit slow. Great casual atmosphere unless you have 12 drunk Americans at the next table. Other than that it was good.

The War Horse Saloon is a very friendly place where you can get a very large serving of scrumptious food and some really excellent beers brewed by the owner. We enjoyed the burgers but were tempted by a lot of the menu. The atmosphere is straight out of the western movies (with updates for TV to watch essential football matches)... More
