Description: The restaurant, One Good Horse, has a feel reminiscent of the by-gone era of early 1900's horse racing days. Its early 20th century-infused decor holds an echo of the times when prosperity and the great horses had people flocking to the races; taking their chances on the big names and champions like Phar Lap, Seabiscuit and Cardigan Bay.

“Friendly place, enjoyable food.”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Heard good things about this place, and needed somewhere that was child-friendly to take our 6yr old and 2yr old. The menu has a nice selection, with plenty to choose from that is different from the usual pub grub. Our waitress (Kayleigh?) was very friendly (not to mention patient when my son started having a tantrum) and the service was attentive but not intrusive. Would recommend and would return, just wish there was somewhere like this in Casebrook.

“Better than I expected!!!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

I had heard about One Good horse and thought it would be usual pub food but I was more than happy. Food is really great but still reasonable prices. Most dishes are what you would expect but done very well.
I ALWAYS save room for desert and challenge everyone to have the Crunchie Ice cream cake. It is the best desert i have had.
Whole place is themed and even though i have no idea about horse racing it is interesting to look around.

“Great on a cold night!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

A lovely meal on a cold Tuesday night. We even sat outside next to the gorgeous gas fire and felt as though we could have stayed there all night! The rump steak (with veges) and the Caesar salad (with chicken and bacon) were delicious and well presented, definitely going back!

“Great Fish & Chips”
Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is part of a suburban tavern in Burwood and is worth trying. A reasonably extensive menu with quite a few salad option. The fish and chips were good. I would definitely go back.
