The Warhorse is an odd sort of place. The surroundings show efforts to create an American West kind of feel, sadly some of the ornaments are a bit plasticky. The resulting ambiance is a wee bit confused: there's John Wayne cut outs, plastic mounted deer heads and some decently authentic old movie posters. The entrance sports a great looking covered wagon, and a huge old cash register. Inside, the tables are suitably covered in red and white checked table cloths, and the seats are comfortable. Some nice polished wood is a little let down by some out-of-place suspended ceiling panels near the road. The wait staff are friendly (although occasionally hard to find) and provide quick efficient service. Their efficiency is let down by what seems to be a user un-friendly iPad based ordering system. It seems it would be quicker if they just scrawled on a piece of paper. This time we started with some jalapeno poppers and BBQ wings. Both the cream cheese filled crumbed jalapenos, and the spicy hot BBQ chicken wings were fantastic, and if there were enough we may never have made it to the mains! We bought a 'jug' of beer for the table, which turned out to be served in a gigantic 2 liter iced dispenser. Not mention the pleasure of ice-cold beer, this was both fantastic value for money, and a lot of fun to use. Our mains were beef ribs, vegetarian fajita, and a massive 1/2 kilo steak. All were excellent: the meat literally fell off the ribs with minimal effort ad was extremely tasty. The steak was perfectly done and easy to eat, despite being massively filling; and the fajitas were great, including a plate of sizzling capsicum and egg plant in place of the usual chicken or beef strips.
After devouring the mains, we couldn't resist trying the desserts even though we were totally stuffed. We shared a cheesecake and a chocolate cake between us, and they were great. Special mention goes to the cheesecake though: it is one which keeps you coming back for more even though your stomach has been telling you it's full for ages!
Overall the Warhorse is a quirky place with very good food. If you enjoy decent BBQ beef, this is a great choice. The cheesecake alone is worth another visit.
