On our recent visit to Mudgee our tour operator recommended the Red Heifer as a great place to eat, particularly Monday evening where they offer 2 steaks for price of 1. The only catch is you cook your own steak. We splurged on two 500 gram bone in rib eyes and they were a sensational cut of meat. Cooking your... More

As a Mudgee local, I've eaten here a few times over the last few years. It was pretty ordinary up until, I think, early last year, when the food took a sudden turn for the better. An interesting menu, a step above ordinary pub food, is on offer. Everything I've tried has been perfectly cooked. The grilled fish is always... More

This is without doubt the home of the best steak in town. I am never dissatisfied with the mouthwatering steaks here.

We had dinner at the Red Heifer. Nice atmosphere. Staff at the bar were indifferent; however staff in the restaurant were great. We both had steak which were nicely cooked, as were the vegetables.

This restaurant is located inside the Lawson Park Hotel which is a beautiful country hotel. The restaurant provides you with an extensive menu and the opportunity to cook your own steak. My steak was cooked to perfection and I couldn't fault my meal in any way. Service wasn't overly friendly but wasn't rude either. Well worth a visit when in... More

Enjoyed a very high quality lunch here today. Friendly staff, great food, value for money and efficient! I had the pork belly. The jus was the bomb. Pork skin-perfectly crispy. Other half had the steak and was also very high quality. Would come back again and again and again!
