We had our evening meal here at a footpath table. Our first complaint was the service & we did notice an advertisement for wait staff, but !! The menu was OK & the food we received was slightly better than pub food. Risotto was overly moist & lacked flavour. My 2 companions ordered ribs & were a bit surprised at... More

Came across Deloraine by accident and took a stroll through town and stopped at The Empire Hotel. Where we found the owner at the bar who was very friendly. We decided to eat here and were happily surprised at the friendlyness of the waitress and the quality of our meals, eventhough my sons ribs did turn up later than ours... More

Worse Pepper Sauce EVER. Everything else just ok, service great. Disappointed that they add GST on top of the menu and wine price and we didn't notice until looking at the receipt later. I eat out a lot and this is the first time I have seen this. Makes it too over priced for very ordinary food and wine.

I feel that I must correct this review. We do not add GST to our prices. All of our prices are GST inclusive. The receipt however itemises GST separately. I remember serving this couple and have taken the feedback on the sauce up with the chef. Mind you, I did notice that they didn't leave a scrap behind. More

We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at this hotel whilst we were in Deloraine. The cafe with open windows was a great touch. There are tables and chairs available for outside dining. Prices are reasonable and servings are large. The pasta dishes are enormous and delicious.

My wife and I stayed at Deloraine for a few nights, and visited the Empire Bar and Restaurant a few times during our stay there. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Particularly given my wife’s numerous food allergies and dietary restrictions, they were able and willing to accommodate her special dietary requirements, and were very careful to check with...

Visited the Empire today on the recommendation of a mate. Fabulous atmosphere in the bar and dining area. The staff were really friendly and happy to have a yarn. Nothing was too much trouble. The menu had a great variety of options for all tastes. Prices reasonable too which was even better. It's worth the trip to Deloraine (between Launceston... More

I have coffee and often a meal at the Cycles Cafe in this hotel least once a week. Have had the lunch meals a couple of times and always found the service and the food to be very good. I admit i haven't had a night meal there yet because i'm not in Deloraine for the evening. Surprised at a... More

I recently attended a celebration with a group of 20 friends at this establishment. Cannot even begin to describe the beautiful meals that was prepared for all 20 individuals! Not one member of the group could fault their meal. Staff were very friendly and accommodating and could not do enough for us. Thank you Empire Staff! Wonderful place to eat... More

Waited 1.25 hours for standard food. Falsey advertised food, saying 'covered in a pepper sauce' when realistically sprinkled with pepper. Had wrong meals taken out to us on 3 occasions. Awful. Don't visit.

So sorry that you and your partner had this experience. As you can see from other reviews it is not typical of our place. We take great pride in the quality of our food an service but acknowledge that on this particular night many things did not run smoothly. More
