On the wall of The Station Hotel is a giant cow, its parts outlined and numbered. Your waiter will guide you through the choices in the menu, pointing out the bavette from the rib eye, explaining that a happy cow is a tasty cow and that the one you’re about to enjoy frolicked freely in a Gippsland field. (We recommend the John Dee 100-day grain-fed Black Angus 'flat iron steak' from Queensland.) Although there are a couple of decent vegetarian dishes, it’d be wise to leave your less bloodthirsty friends at home while you roll around in The Station Hotel’s carnivorous glory.
