We camped across the road from the pub, great little space with grass & trees. Wandered over to the pub for dinner, the staff were friendly, as well as the other customers. We had a Stockyard pizza (best we've had since being on the road for nine months), garlic bread yummy & beer & wine well priced & cold. Would highly recommend Hair of the Dog, great Aussie pub.

Family run pub.
Cheap as.
Friendly staff they make you free like you don't want to go.
Locals have sing alongs and make you free welcomed.
I will be staying here again.
Owners that run the pub happy to sit and have a chat, no pokies which make it a relaxing enjoyable place to rest and have a few.

Great country pub close to Dubbo. Great food in front of the cosy fireplace. Rooms are great with big comfy beds, bit draughty but supplied with heaters and electric blankets. Lovely atmosphere and lots of locals enjoying the pub.

I booked here for a night because I couldn't find anything with better reviews in Dubbo. Had I known the location was far and no reception at all, I would just book any motel in Dubbo on the spot.

Room was spotless and warm with electric blankets. Kudos for the housekeeper. However, it lacks of necessities such as coat rack/hanger or bedside lamps would be useful rather than fake plants.

Staff communication was really poor. Gave me key without briefing where is the shower, bathroom and where I could get breakfast in the AM. I suspect the breakfast was provided as in my booking said so, but the door said only accessible for STAFF ONLY and it's closed! No brief where should I go out when the door through pub is closed either.

With same amount of money, I might as well book some dorm in the city as I needed to share toilets and shower outside and no wifi. At least you could offer to buy wifi access or using computers whatsoever. But straight repetitive "we have no wifi" wasn't helpful at all. I got stranger offered me to check map route with their phone instead.

I bet good reviews came from people using their free parking areas for caravans/campers which is great. But other than the quality of the room, I would never stay here.

Fantastic pub! We were there for a family Reunion. It is not far from Dubbo with rooms and camping available. Great hosts and catering was excellent. Highly recommended!

Awesome little pub, great food and staff were very friendly. We stayed in the free camping at the front of the pub, awesome spot to a stop over. The trains do come through but that didn't bother us. ??'?

A good place to stop when on the road. Cheap camping out the back of the pub, it's free accros the road but I much preferred being on site of the pub with access to the toilets & shower also. Just be mindful if the train goes past at night it's loud - gave me a fright! Friendly service at the pub, good food & drink.

Friendly, warm pub. Owner is the cook and super pub food. Value accommodation with simple breakfast.
Good lock up for cycle groups and washing bikes at days end.

Stayed here on the 10/07 ad part of a adventure motorbike ride across NSW and QLD. Loved it. Great pub, great food, great people. Had a secure place to park the bikes overnight and the beds were comfortable with electric blankets.

Was a great way to start a mid life crisis ride!!!!

Great experience for our first night camping outside a pub in our van. The inn was closed the next day for a public holiday so we couldn't use their bathroom in the morning, but the public toilets were right next door. Lovely food and atmosphere in the pub itself.

Great vibe. Very helpful and friendly staff. Perfect for cyclists. They have a cage to store bikes and a hose outside to wash them. Room was clean and comfortable. Simple breakfast (cereal and toast) is provided but seemed like they didn't expect anyone to have it - no spoons, no butter, no bin or place to put dirty dishes. Great stay anyway.
