The menu is heavily weighted towards pizza, burgers and steak. The food was tasty and well presented and the staff very friendly. Prices are reasonable.

Nice staff and well priced beer. Really lacking in vegetarian options. Had the pizza, nice base but not much on it and no sauce so I paid extra for some aioli. Use to come here years ago and the pizzas were way better back then!

For a quick wood-fired pizza and beer served beautifully and efficiently you can't beat Drover's Return Bar and Cafe in Friendly Feilding. The ambience in the bar is well-suited to this country town and farming community - fast friendly service and spotlessly clean but retaining...More

Had high expectations for this place, walked in and straight away felt very un welcomed. They asked rudely for ID immediately. For crying out loud let us sit down and breathe. No table service which I thought was very odd. Happy to deliver your meal...More
