After along day at the Rocky bull-sale was great to drop in for an ale or 3, have dinner with a live rodeo practice. Great feed of sea food and steak reasonably priced. Having a great time watching the young fellas practicing their riding skills...More

Helpful staff inviting us to look around and look out the back at the rodeo ring and informing us of what nights the rodeos are on. Great to look at the walls with the memorabilia. The meals were quick, large and good.

Being the beef capital of Australia you would expect something special and this place didn't disappoint. Great steaks, fair value and if you go on the right night there is a rodeo happening as well.

We really enjoyed watching the young people practicing riding the bulls. Then we had a steak dinner that was cooked to perfection. The only flaw in the evening was that the bar didn't have any cider. Then I asked for a glass of red wine,...More

What a great place! Massive covered rodeo arena out the back and their own brand Beer on tap. For steak and country lovers this place ticks all of the boxes. I had a great Angus steak with chips, salad and mushroom gravy in the dining...More
