Great pub food with a modern twist.

We ate at Seymours on Good Friday for dinner and was impressed with the specials menu which had extra fish meals on it. The staff are lovely and the food was delish!

Due to a family connection I was looking forward to staying at the hotel and sampling the food based on the recommendation of the publican. The restaurant had little or no ambience and but for the effort of the waitress the whole experience would have been a complete disaster. I had grilled Tevalley with vegetables and the fish was more... More

I don't know where to start but we thought the Seymour was amazing. It is close to the city centre and the building, staff and food were amazing. I went with my partner to have dinner with another relative that had gathered in Ballarat for a very sad family situation and the staff were great. At the end of the... More

Have eaten at Seymours a number of times now. The place is nice and always seems to have a good crowd. It's close to the heart of Ballarat but has easy parking in a quiet location. The people here are friendly and service is good. It's a classic pub menu and steak was the order of the day this time... More

The best thing about Seymour's on Lydiard is the wonderful upstairs balcony. Seymour's does good food, but it is not exceptional. The ambience is not exceptional, nor is the service. Nor is it bad. Seymours has a very loyal clientelle. It does good steaks and offers vegetarian options. Ingredients are good quality and freshly cooked. If you are a seafood... More

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

Hi Walks49, Thank you for your feedback, I only wish we had known about this problem on the night so we could have rectified the issue at the time. We are very sorry you were unhappy with the way your fish was cooked, we would have been more than happy to replace it for you had we known. Thank you... More
