We are a popular family friendly Bistro located in the centre of town.

We have an extensive menu serving all the pub classics, with a range of dining options to choose from.

Whether you choose to perch yourself and your family up in the booth seating of our Bistro, settle into the Family Terrace with the kids for a meal, retire to the Noel Gale Lounge area or take in the views on the Alpen Terrace, we have a space for everyone.

Open Lunch & Dinner 7 days a week! Lunch 12-2pm and dinner 6-9pm.

The Bistro has been serving up meals since its inception in 1999.

Catering has been the cornerstone of the club for many years. In 2018, the club commenced a Bistro upgrade in the dining space, with a full Kitchen renovation completed in 2020.

When speaking about the Southside Bistro, it is difficult not to mention Tony “Tango” Tengstrom. Tony had worked at the Club for over 18 years and was instrumental in achieving our reputation for quality food.

Our Specials board changes weekly.

All kid’s meals come with a free soft drink, kid’s activity pack & ice-cream.

Being a member of the club entitles you to 10% off your meals every time you visit.

Walk-ins welcome.

If your requested time is unavailable when booking, just come on in — we have plenty of tables available on a walk-in basis for lunch & dinner.
