This used to be the place to go, now it's just terrible, your new menu is crap I got a soggy pizza with $1 worth of chicken on it for $20. Then thought I'd try it again with something else and I get a raw burger. Sorry team but we won't be eating there again.

Was a great place to go for a meal.That was until they changed the menu , this place is so far out of touch with there customers it's not funny. Used to go 2-3 times a week now don't go at all. Even changed kids menu and took a basic pizza of kids menu. Will not be back

Went to dinner had nice starters then main meal wasn't cooked properly so had to send back which do not like doing. As a group our meals were then not in sync with others. The young male waiter wasn't very friendly and just dumped stuff on the table. Overall wasn't a very good experience but was costly...don't think we will... More

Meal for me was average but family with children loved the whole package which was one adult one child eats free ! What a great savings on a Monday night - some meals were really good others average but overall a good experience

We have been here many times. Its always been fine family fare. Always adequate, sometimes excellent. Unfortunately, this Saturday, the place was fairly empty and we soon discovered why. The menu has been streamlined, no pizza for the kids. Just fish fingers or similar with chips. My steak was fine. But very pricey. Everything was fine. Except for the cheesecake.... More

Yay!! fillet steak on the menu... $38, bound to be good at that price, hmmmm comes with shoestring fries (should have been an indicator of what was to come). Flat bread was definately a miss,...

Service slow , staff that just don't care, gluten free options non exsistant (not even gluten free bread)This place needs to move into the 21st century or the business will not survive

Been here before and was awesome. Very disappointed this time. Service very slow. Had a long wait before our drinks arrived. Childs food was all chips and 2 chicken tenders. Chicken parmigiano was obviously bulk cooked... Burger with side of 2 eggs.. eggs arrived 5 mins before meal. Didnt look like enough staff on. Very disappointed. Wont be back.

Thank Deb H

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.
