A m most interesting way of displaying their food fare on a variety of notice boards around the bar and the adjoining foyer, without repeating themselves once. Maybe a chance for the staff to interface with clients which they did well and very friendly. Fair...More

We visited this restaurant during our week in Forbes for Rural Aid Farm Rescue. We both ordered the lamb rump and it was beautifully cooked and presented. The staff were super friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed our visit.

Love visiting for lunch to get a Vandenburger! Not available at dinner. Standard pub fare/counter meals served in the main pub. There's a separate restaurant area which is nice, however you can order from either menu if you want to sit in the pub area....More
