Let us watch AFL & tolerated a poorly behaved Richmond supporter

The War Horse gave Hubby the TV remotes so he could find the AFL game he 'needed' to watch. Pool tables & darts entertained rest of family. Hubby entertained staff & patrons at times in the last quarter. Burgers went down well. Very accommodating. Tks.

We have eaten here a few times in our two visits to port Vila. The first time in January, I thought the food wasn't great (the Mexican especially was extremely bland) but the rest was ok. The service was a little unreliable as well although I can overlook this. My kids love this place and think the food is great... More

Had a feed here on our second last night in Vanuatu, great venue and food , portion sizes are adequate and super tasty , nice venue and staff. Was a bit warm out the back after a few to many jalapenos but waiter turned fans on for us .

I love my buffalo wings and they were good. They should have had more sauce on them, but I asked for more and then they ended up perfect. I had a scotch filet with mash and pepper sauce and it was unfortunately nothing special. It didn't taste very much so I had to add quite a lot of salt and... More

The food in the war horse saloon is the worst my family and I have ever had, anywhere, ever. Whilst all of the meals we ordered were truly awful the biggest disgrace is that they served raw chicken which gave my son severe food poisoning. When we entered the restaurant it was deserted and unfortunately we didn't follow our instincts... More

If you are looking for a fun night out then the War Horse Saloon should be on your bucket list. The food in the adjacent restaurant is also quite good and portions are generous. Only critique I would have is that their band / DJ are very loud even if nobody is dancing and this forces most patrons to seek... More

Come down every Wednesday night to watch dart competition being played there. Great friendly staff and a nice place to chill down and watch the game of darts on Wednesday nights. A Doubles competition is currently being played starting tonight. A great restaurant to dine as well.
