Flying Horse as our family loves dining at your restaurant! We love coming midweek when the 2 kids can eat free and have fun in the great playroom. Both my partner and I have had numerous family and friends visit Warrnambool in the past 12 months and we always take them out to dinner at The Horse, and they have not been disappointed.

The service is friendly, atmosphere relaxed and comfortable, and most importantly the food is great, we love that there are lots of menu choices! Both our employers have also held work dinners at the horse, and followed an enjoyable dinner by a fun evening in the bar listening to a good cover band!

The function room for my nannas 80th was perfect.. The room was a perfect size and the lift was a great addition for the older people invited to the party..

The food was fantastic especially the sandwichs which the older crew loved.. I found the food prices to be very reasonable and lots to choose from.. There was plenty of food throughout the night.

The staff were very accomodating and anything u needed they made sure was done whether it be from the heaters to the aircon, to adjusting music and lights.. Would highly recommend to anyone lookin for a readonable priced function room to check out the horse



As regulars of your fine establishment we can honestly say we love the food, the service and the cosy feel of the place.  The kids love the playroom and we know we can all look forward to a quality meal when we need a break from cooking. Keep up the good work 🙂

The Flying Horse is one of the best venues in Warrnambool. Great quality food at reasonable prices, great service and friendly staff, with a pleasant atmosphere in the Sports Bar or dining area. Functions are always well organised with the staff going out of there way to make sure the function goes off without any problems

First there were no complaints and everyone was enjoying themselves.   Which speaks for its self . For my part in the booking I appreciated the assistance that I received and the effort made to accommodate us in such a comfortable and open space.  As we go out for lunch after every monthly meeting, at different venues, no doubt we will be back again.

As the owner of “The Gateway Motor Inn“ motel located within 400m of the Flying Horse we have absolutely no doubt about referring The Flying Horse when guests ask for a close Restaurant to go to. We have sent thousands of guests there in my 3 years of Owning “The Gateway” and we continually ask our guests for feedback about “The Flying Horse”.

Our Guests love it and our guests are from every walk of life – Corporate’s, Holiday Makers, Overseas Travellers and Seniors – they cater for everyone. We can highly recommend the food, Friendly Staff Service and the venue itself. Dobbo in the bottle-o does a great job as well. Look forward to Visiting again. Good Luck on another 8 years!

Always a friendly welcome and enjoyable experience for the family when we dine at the Flying Horse. The staff make it ideal for us to take the kids (our 3 kids always like it) with quick service and accommodating our needs.

We recently had your agm for our sports trainers association out at the flying horse bar and brewery.

The staff and management made it very easy for us to have our meeting out at the horse.

All the planning for our agm including supper was taken care of ,the friendly staff phoned me on a number of occasions just to make sure we had everything we needed.

We always use the flying horse for all our meetings during the year and as always the staff and management have been very helpful.

I would like to finish by saying that the flying horse bar and brewery is a great place to hold a function.

Have always enjoyed any times that we have been at the “horse’,we often eat at other restaurants etc around Warrnambool & being a lover of Salads the ‘horse’is so far ahead of everyone else.Love your Salt & Pepper Squid,always cooked to perfection.maybe only one complaint not that you can do much about it as we feel it may be the design of the building,it can be very noisey.

Thank you for all your help in organising my son’s 21st function it was an outstanding success. The quality food, the friendly wait staff & the availability of the bus afterwards to ferry quest into the CBD went a long way to making it a very memorable night. The party was great value for money in a great environment.


Great meals with the Salt & Pepper Calamari the best in the district!!! Great Pub, terrific atmosphere, caters for all with  friendly and obliging staff.


My family and I would like you to thank you for the wonderful night my family and I  had Saturday night celebrating Matthews 21st birthday. The venue is obviously fantastic, but your staff couldn’t have done anything more to help us. They were so awesome and ready to assist us in any way we asked and were the reason the night went so smoothly. Please pass onto your staff for us, especially to Rhiannan our appreciation, she was terrific. All our meals were fantastic and couldn’t believe the speed of the service. Thanks again, and we will be sure to pass the word around what a terrific venue you have at the Flying Horse.

Ally and all the staff were very friendly and efficient in helping make my 50th party at “The Horse” a fantastic night.  I was allowed to make regular payments prior to the event, had choice on the room layout and flexibility with the menu. The food was lovely, bar service excellent and Ally even liaised with the band and photo booth.  The upstairs function room is a perfect place for parties and I thoroughly recommend the venue. “

I’ve been a VIP member for over a year now, and have a regular night every week.  The staff are friendly, down-to-earth people who take special care to make every visit a pleasant one.  After all this time, I still enjoy the warmth of the atmosphere, and look forward to it every week.  The venue itself is well-laid out and family-friendly, and parking is never an issue.  Whether you are there to dine, attend a function, or just catch up with friends in the bar or lounge, this spot really ticks all the boxes.


It’s Sandra here. We are farmers from central Victoria who have a holiday house at Warrnambool. Whenever we come down to your fair city, we like to have a special meal out, and on numerous occasions, have done so at the Flying Horse. It has never failed to be a good outing. The place is clean, the staff are polite, the choice of food is considerable, the meal comes quickly, and when it does, it’s always yummy. At the end of our evening, we rise from the table, pat our full bellies, pay the moderate bill, and drive back to our holiday house feeling replete indeed.

The measure of a venue’s success is if its standards are predictable : and every time we have booked a romantic table for two, we have come away feeling feasted and happy. Dinner at the Flying Horse has never been disappointing.

Cheers from Sandra Lacey

I was very impressed with: 1 the fast service, 2 the variety on the menu including gluten free options and 3 the quality of the meal itself! We had a table of about 18 adults and children and not one meal was delayed in coming out… Can’t beat that!  Keep up the good work guys!

Ps. Try the steak! Talk about melt in your mouth delish!  Kate


The training days in the Boardroom have been fantastic, with the room set up perfectly on my last visit. Everything has been running so smoothly with the staff being so friendly and helpful. Your lunches have also been amazing yummy! All i can say is thank you for setting up each and every time for my visits…. You do an excellent job!
