The sports club itself is just like any other one. The service is very friendly and they have Reschs beer on tap. The best thing about it is the bistro. They have good food and great specials.

Went to Bistro as we were attending a meeting at the club. Meals very well priced and quite tasty. Good range of bottled wine by the glass. Would definitely go back.

Great little club! Can get a rump steak or a chicken schnitzel for $10.50. Good atmosphere, lovely meal. Would dine here again, next time we are in Canberra!

We had been going to this bistro semi-regularly for a couple of years - every couple of months we'd pop in for dinner, some drinks and raffles. We had our favourite meals - pork chops, garlic and mustard sauce and mashed potato/veg which we had...More
