Expect more from a large joint in a country town. Steaks were OK, a bit over cooked but the meals were a good size. The Beef Wellington was great, very chunky and an actual pie! Not a dish with a pastry lid. If you are looking for 'Australian' it is worth a visit.

We often eat at the local RSL when travelling as they usually offer good food at a reasonable price in a pleasant venue. Narribri RSL has an outback themed dining room which we found interesting an fun. The food was cooked nicely and it was tasty. Good value for money.

Fun themed restaurant that included a half hourly rain storm that had water coming off the roof between dinners on the porch and main eating area. Food was good and good wait staff

Service was fast very friendly price about mid range . Great... More

We both ordered the scotch fillet steak with garlic prawns - it was tender & the portion very big. We chose the salad & chips option. Chips were nothing special - salad was pleasant.

Certainly unlike any RSL I have ever been to. The restaurant is styled after a large barn. Meals are pretty standard club/pub meals with Parma, Schnitzels etc. The meals themselves were large, deep fried in the main, had some taste but were hardly moist. Should be so better, as the numbers of diners there on the night were quite numerous.
