Great new deck!

Had a lovely steak on a bed of sweet potato mash with green beans, and squash, cooked perfectly! Husband had roast of the day, lamb cooked well. Friendly service, could use a bit more shade on the deck, market umbrellas were few and far between forcing people to sit inside when it was a lovely day... read more

As hotels go, I don't tend to expect much. They all seem very similar. This one is a bit nicer than the rest, though. They have recently renovated and it shows. The dining area is well appointed and comfortable. The portion sizes are good for the cost and I have enjoyed it every time I've been there.

I have been here on a few occasions all for lunch. The food is really nice and do Senior meals at a good price. Depending on what you order some serves can be small but very tasty and well presented. The staff are lovely. We went one day and had to wait as we did not have a booking but... More

The new part of the Stirling Hotel was very busy but we found a spot for three of us on Sunday. There is a bistro area and pizza place plus outdoor dining - it was a wee bit warm for that. We shared the dip, a main course calamari and a greek salad. The latter contained lots of lettuce which... More

The formal restaurant section of the hotel is named 'The Grill". The black and white themed area is tastefully furnished which Danish style furniture and timber tables which give it a modern twist in a heritage setting. The lights are extremely covetable. We opted for the $55 each package consisting of one starter, one mains and a side. The service... More

Regular diners to the pub & pizza side of The Stirling the new deck is a great feature of this pub and definitely adds more capacity. The latest meal we had was all good quality but the let down the wait for food was at least 45 minutes, which doesn't make for a quick meal with kids. The snitzels were... More

Very trendy but has failed to deliver when we've eaten here on numerous occasions. Referring to 'pub' side of establishment, haven't tried the formal restaurant.

We enjoyed a nice fine dining meal here on New Year's Eve. Staff were lovely and the ambience is clean and modern. The food was nicely presented, but portions were miserly and expensive. Whilst the service good, it was somewhat intrusive, and clearly geared towards maximising revenue. A pet hate of mine is the cheery offer of water "sparkling or... More

Had a business lunch here. The boutique beer and ciders on tap are excellent. They have a new deck which looks great, makes it feel like you are further from the road. The chairs recline a bit too much. I had the pumpkin gnocchi. It was very good. Overall it's a great spot, Stirling is getting some great food options.

This is a hotel that can offer a range of dining and great accommodation. There is the Bistro with a pizza oven along side. The restaurant is second to none. There is now a great outdoor dining area at the front of the Bistro, only problem is at the moment it is quite open and will not be usable in... More
