Never fear, Crooked Cactus is here to stay

OWNERS of The Crooked Cactus want to get one thing straight - they aren't going anywhere.

An article published in The Morning Bulletin last Friday said the Rockhampton Saleyards Hotel building had gone into receivership.

It stated this would not affect the Crooked Cactus, a Mexican restaurant located within the Gladstone Rd building, or the operation of the pub.

However, Crooked Cactus director Samantha Kuhl yesterday said the news had some customers worried.

"I just want to clarify the business and the building are two completely separate entities," she said.

"We are not in receivership.

"We've been operating for the last six years and we'll be here for another 14 years."

Samantha said they were used to the building being up for sale, as it had been in and out of the real estate market for the last two years.

She made it clear it would be business as usual for the restaurant and hotel, no matter what happened.

In fact, the restaurant has recently released a new menu which is now available to view at www.thecrookedcactus.com.au.

"We have a new range of Fajitas and we have added lots of other new dishes, as well as separate gluten-free and vegetarian options," Samantha said.

She said live music had also started back up again on Saturday nights from 7.30pm.
