Visited this old survivor last week as part of our Golden West Discovery Trail and it was a great glimpse of the past and not so past. Beer was cold and food was ample as we sat outside this pub that the bikies couldnt destroy.

It's a nice historial hotel with quite a lot things to see from the back of the hotel. Also lots of stories about the bikies and myths. The beer was cold and atmosphere was quite amber.

I think the location pin is wrongly placed in Wagin . Been to Ora Banda several times. A worth while bush driving detour for a beer. A really quaint place with a black past.
