$5 entry. One of the funniest evenings out. Banter by the compete was excellent .. put aside thoughts on animal welfare .. sometimes these things just need to be enjoyed.

Service was good, not fantastic but good considering the staff all seem like backpackers. Food was good and everyone enjoyed their food, and drinks were topped up often. Toad Racing entertaining and worth doing for a laugh.

Very rustic establishment which adds as a talking point . Good meals as reasonable prices and friendly staff. Added attraction is the Toad Racing every night. A bit of fun, comedy and unique. Well worth a visit

Rustic little bar. Get up to the second floor 10am to 6pm for a $5 schooner. The house brews are great, particularly liked the pale ale.

Had the eye fillet with salad and fries. Steak was perfectly cooked and salad was fresh. Will be back!

Worst meal we’ve ever eaten. Clearly not trained chefs just cheap backpacker cooks with no taste buds. A friend had plastic in her food. Went home hungry as food is inedible. If you saw the dingy club crowd that go here after dark you would...More

We went to the Iron Bar for dinner, service was quick and friendly. I had the Ricotta gnocchi, sift and flavoursome but parts of my husbands pork belly were a little dry, so he wasn’t a fan. We couldn’t stay for the toad race but...More
