As one of the most popular venues in town, it is not uncommon to find a crowded house every night of the week. Saturday nights ramp up another notch when local football teams return from games and when the live entertainment begins.
The Windsor has been a major sponsor of the Dalby Stock Horse Sale for a number of years now, providing all the alcohol for the downstairs bar as well as all of the catering and beverages for the upstairs restaurant.
