Herd 'em up!


Next time you're looking for a spot to eat in Toowoomba, consider visiting this old girl on the corner of Ruthven and Campbell Streets. It's hard to miss this pub, with its herd of black and white "spotted" cows painted on the outside walls. The Spotted Cow was established in 1892 and has the appearance of an old pub but its interior is modern and fresh. It is newly renovated and features 3 bars: the Bull, Jersey and Oropa bars. The Spotted Cow is known as the home of imported beers and with 70 beers to choose from, you're spoilt for choice. A very impressive fireplace in the dining area made me wish the weather was cold enough to see it in action.

The delicious BLAT


Lunch options range from $6.50 for a delicious Bacon, Avocado, Lettuce and Tomato Turkish bread sandwich to $25 for a seafood pizza from the Pizzeria. Check out the lunch menu.

Dinner is well and truly catered for with a good range of options on offer. There is a daily specials board and the Spotted Cow has special nights. We were there on a Wednesday night which is Parma Night - giving you about 6 different variations of the old pub favourite for $14.50 each. See the dinner menu here.

Kids are also catered for, with their own menu. Wednesday night is also Trivia night and the bar area was packed with trivia wannabes.
