“Went for the rodeo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

Would recommend anyone to go to the rodeo, especially if you've never seen something like that before like us. We didn't have any of the food served there, as it looked pretty gross. We had a few beers (cheap for Australia) and wathced the whole show. Had a great night.

“Great tucker at The Great Western”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Real pub meal with limited beer on tap and wine on the menu but still worth the visit. Enjoyed the old pub feel and old pub food.

“Mothers Day Lunch 2014 - Well Done!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

What a deal! We booked a table for 3 adults and 2 children for Mothers Day Lunch. On arrival we were greeted with a small bunch of flowers and mini chocolates for the mums (small surprise) then ordered from the specials for that day. For $15 you could order either roast chicken, pork, lamb and beef served with vegetables then a choice of two desserts! The servings where generous and yummy. Bonus, the children were given colouring books and pencils to keep them occupied plus given free juice boxes to go with their meals!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

Good setting. Good service and great steak. Meal size good value for money. Would have been good fun on a busy night with Bull riding taking place too. Will be definitely returning.

“Is what it is!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

Great place to take visitors! Went for lunch. Sat in the Saloon style restaurant adjoining the bar. Quick and cheap lunch. Not flash, but good value for 12 bucks! Highlight was seeing the bulls out back and sitting in the Saloon - what a time warp. Customer service was crap. The owners could really improve their revenue if they invested in their staff and made this place more of a tourist destination. All the ingredients are there - just needs a few happy, motivated staff to give the place a bit more sizzle!
