You can enjoy a coffee and cake in club chairs or enjoy a meal with a selection of salads or vegetables. They have a pokies room for those who like to dabble that way. Very comfortable atmosphere.

Good variety of history on display, uniforms, weapons used dating back as far as world war 1 - I think there is some memorabilia even dating back even further.
