Great place to eat is The Lions Pride in Dubbo. The food was excellent and the staff were brilliant with the kids. Atmosphere was warm and inviting.

From the start, the experience was fantastic. We were greeted with a smile, all the staff seemed happy to be there serving us. The food came out quickly and was really good quality in both taste, presentation and portion size. I was impressed with the kids menu too. This restaurant really knows how to cater for a family with younger... More

My partner and I ate here twice on our trip and both time had beautiful meals. Friendly staff with great smoked barbecue foods. The lamb shank is absolutely amazing! Not as happy with a parma we got, although still good the more slow cooked and barbecue meals are delicious!

I had the Lions Pride challenge which was a club sandwich, big bowl of chicken wings and a massive icecream desert. I knew my teenage son would help me finish it. It was a very large, delicious meal. We also had schnitzels and beautiful large desserts that were almost to good to eat. Excellent service and food. Great cocktails. Not... More

Visiting Dubbo on business with other managers. We stayed at Countryman Motel and as it was a cold evening, decided to eat at the attached restaurant. It was not a busy night but staff were very friendly and the food was delightful.

Visited after a very long day of driving. Seated very quickly by the friendly wait staff. Attached to a very run down motel but worth a visit. Ordered the Pork Ribs which were wonderful. As mentioned in many other reviews they are not cheap but can't question the quality.

I went to this place recently becuse I heard a lot about the ribs. I was not disappointed. The pork ribs were cooked perfectly, soft and just amazing and the beef ribs are also great. The vibe was decent as well but it was just a little pricey.

The Lions Pride Restaurant is a must when visiting Dubbo. The menu has a large variety of options. The preparation time was very reasonable with each meal being cooked to perfection and completely filling. The customer service was excellent. The wait staff were polite, friendly, very prompt in their service and attentive to all of our needs.

Quite pricey for the food but it's the quality you are paying for! The best ingredients for the best food. I personally recommend the bbq pork ribs and the rib eye steak. Friendly staff too.

Went here with a large group & sat outside on a beautiful evening. We'd been told by locals it was a good place to go with a group. The menu is not especially imaginative; it specialises in meat-heavy dishes, steaks, schnitzels, shanks, ribs etc. The one vegetarian in our group had very few options to choose from. The fire-roasted ribs... More
