Why not head down to The Ranch Hotel in Eastwood? With two drinking areas including the public bar where you can catch all the latest sport, and the terrace bar which is more funky and open till late, you will be sure to find something to suit your mood. Friday nights are popular amongst locals and university students who visit for the DJs, giveaways and video clips. Meanwhile, with an experienced, internationally travelled and trained chef at the helm, the bistros cuisine is Modern Australian, rather than pub fare.
This pub really seemed to be one of those pubs that is designed more for people with cars as opposed to people on foot, such as me. However, it really isn’t all that close to the public transport routes, if you don’t take into account the new railway line that has been built in the local area (though it probably is rather old by now). However, I’m not going to knock this place too much because they did have some nice beers on tap, and the beer garden was also quite nice as well.
FIVE STAR! We had an engagement party here last night and we loved the place. The bar staff were lovely and never rude. There was ample space for over 80 people. The waiters were always very polite. We just loved it. I'm sure the future bride and groom did too, as I know the ranch went above and beyond for them!
Came here with some retired friends and realized why this place is loved by them, they offer a senior menu with meals as low as $10! Then here's there cake and coffee special which is $8.50. It's and large spacious venue with lots of seating to options and on a weekday it isn't too busy.
The chicken schnitzel is good and so is the roast of the day, and for dessert the sticky date cake is moist and sweet.
