Food was better than average pub food , and priced accordingly. Friday night guitarist/ vocalist on the verandah was very pleasant . Particularly friendly chatty staff gave the pub a welcoming atmosphere. The proximity to our accommodation (next door) was a real bonus too.

This venue has a upmarket feel, modern and renovated well. The food is reasonably priced for the value and amount of food. The food was very well presented and fresh. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. As a group we dined in the side room (inside/outside room). There is a good range of vegetarian meals and I warn people the... More

Visited on Friday 19/09 . Staff friendly and courteous. We asked about dining and were shown where to sit by barman. After a while I went back to bar and asked where we order, he said he would come over and take our order. We ordered Duck Spring rolls which were 2 rolls with ingredients that were a mushy consistency... More

Of all the good places to eat in ballarat this is definitely not one of them. Poor quality food average service, and limited selection do yourself a favour go somewhere else

We ate here for lunch and dinner as the service and food was sooo good. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was warm and cosy. There wine list is extensive and food value for money with good daily specials. They also have the best coffee.

Have been twice recently for dinner and had very good food and service both times. First time had a very good fish daily special and the second time a gourmet pizza. Very good selection of wines with helpful and friendly service. Not too noisy. It is in a very good position with easy street parking.

We ate here several times over our three night stay (Anzac Day long weekend). Firstly the full breakfast (free with our hotel booking) was fabulous. It was massive! Eggs cooked to your liking (mine were poached beautifully), bacon (crispy as asked for), toasted Vienna, tomatoes, sausage and hash brown (not for me thanks!). We eventually managed to work out all... More

We had a really nice meal here, reasonable prices and friendly service. We have stayed at Seymours (the motel behind the pub) and that was very nice too. We always eat here when we come to Ballarat.
