    Great pub to embrace Rocky life. Friendly staff. Generally good food. Have a look at their events calendar to make the most your visit. Our highlights have been the occasional bull riding, the Rodeo, the baby animal farm, and pony rides for children.

    We had made a booking for indoor. You couldn’t find our table. Sat us out in the arena. On a high table with stools which is not what we asked for. Then the young lady said to sit there and she would find our table but she didn’t come back. So we just left…

    Thank you for booking our table. Our meals were just delicious and certainly generous and affordable. We dined in the majestic outside entertainment area which was both spacious and relaxing, and were entertained by the great music of the JRB band. A lovely night overall. We have never been disappointed with the meals and service at the GWH Rockhampton and highly recommend this unique regional dining/entertainment attraction.

    The Great Western is always a good place for our work lunches. We can book the table and our meal requests ahead, which means the meals come out quickly and we're back to work within the right amount of time! Quality and pricing of lunches is exceptional.

    Truly is the best steak in town. Great value too - we had the 200g rump steak cooked medium and it was perfection. Melt in your mouth. Will definitely go back for our steak fix.

    We were visiting from NSW and we loved the vibe of the whole hotel. The food was delish! My kids were stealing the brisket off my plate! The food was excellent value-kids ate free when we were there, and in the arena there were baby animals for the kids (of all ages!). Thanks for a truly wonderful dinner out for our family.
