“To Eat, Drink, or Listen to the BIG SCREEN TVs????”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

First up, its a Pub, or more accurately a Beer Barn. It's Big.

Got a Fat Yak on tap and a glass of local wine for my wife, good prices and good wine selection. Fat Yak was not too fresh tasting, the wine OK.

I ordered Pork Belly, and my Wife ordered Risotto. Both were slam average Pub Grub. On the pricey side.

But - the most memorable event of the evening!!!!!

We were sat underneath one of the many, many big screen TVs. No biggie, the sound was off, and we could not see the flicker as we were underneath it. A waitress came up and told us (not ask us if OK) that another table had asked for the sound on our TV to be put up. So we ended up with sound blasting out from the TV about a foot above our heads. Go figure. So we had to move. We then took stock, there was:-

Piped Music playing
Our Big Screen TV playing
And yet ANOTHER Big Screen TV channel playing

Behind the bar there is a sign saying ' No Shots, no Doubles'. Presumably this is to stop trouble. My take?? If anyone with any degree of 'twitchiness' or ADHD were to walk in to that mad vat of sound, there would be shenanigans forthwith as some people just could not cope :-)

Nuff said!

“Dinner at Red Heiffer, Mudgee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Great meal - servings were extremely generous - so much so, that none of us could eat the whole meal!

“Great casual eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

One of the best drop-in eateries. Good menu, great steaks, right atmosphere. Especially recommended to visitors to Mudgee who arrive late Friday night and want a good, casual feed before going on to their accommodation.

“Great for a quick pub meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Generous portions and fast service. Partner and I had the ribs which were tender and tasty. Great with a cold beer.

“It's a pub!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Dined last week and admittedly we weren't after any thing flash. It doesn't pretend to be anything other than a pub and has a good menu for just that. Service was quick and meals delivered quickly, I had the steak which is always safe at a pub and it was fine, slightly cooked more than I requested but ok. My wife had the salmon which was swimming in sauce and not as nice as she thought. Wine selection was good, with good by the glass options.

All up ok, but not special.
