This is a good restaurant, especially if you've got kids as they're well entertained with a play ground. The food is actually really good - pleasantly surprised to be honest! The pork hock was fantastic and my wife's steak was superb.

Mixed food review. Not many ate their salads. Soba noodle salad tasteless and very unpleasant experience in the mouth. Crispy salad was battered chicken. Family members enjoyed their burgers and spare ribs. 1st choice of wine Vicars B@stard (Chardonnay) ? Bad bottle, usually enjoy this...More

Went on a Sunday where we discovered kids eat free and have this fantastic play area so adults can have a moment to themselves. We don't have kids so I would've hated them screaming running around the place but the play-area is completely isolated yet...More

Really friendly service sets this apart, good old fashioned hospitality. Urban style tavern with good 'standard' and traditional food options done well and prepared quick. Excellent fish and chips, steak options, and good value alternative for children. A theme of horse racing provides another point...More

The restaurant, One Good Horse, has a feel reminiscent of the by-gone era of early 1900's horse racing days. Its early 20th century-infused decor holds an echo of the times when prosperity and the great horses had people flocking to the races; taking their chances on the big names and champions like Phar Lap, Seabiscuit and Cardigan Bay.
