“Great choice for a meal”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

So glad we found the Services club while looking around Parkes even though there was a party upstairs the noise couldnt be heard in the bistro, great meal choices, nice friendly service and the rugby was on so a perfect night.

“Great service...”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Good food for kids. Good value. No vegetarian meals but chef was happy to cook something up. We decided on a tomato and roast vegetable pasta which was full of flavour and the pasta was truly al dente. Not overcooked and limp. T-bone steak was very nice but vegetables were sloppy.

“You Pay For What You Get”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Cheap $12. steaks on Wednesdays - pay the difference and go elsewhere. The line was long. The steak was measly. The atmosphere institutional.

“Good food, bad bar service”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We visited the club on Sunday for lunch. The food was really good and there was plenty of it. The really really annoying thing was that the bar attached to the bistro was not open and when someone eventually decided to attend to me I was told to "go to the other side" to get a drink. What other side? That might be ok for locals, but travellers have no idea where the other bar is (which was across the other side of the club). Very poor.

“A great dinner, a (few) great beer(s) and a chill out!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

This was a feature of our short visit. The food and staff were great. They have great mid week specials. The dining room has a nice atmosphere. After that we retired to the lounge to relax a bit longer.
