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

The service was good and the ambience acceptable. A pleasant meal away from home. We ordered cocktails and I am not sure but I think they had to... 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.

Being from out of town we trusted the below reviews and were not disappointed. Jess behind the bar suggested a few tapas options and the Kangaroo melted in my mouth, the homemade spring rolls were awesome and the filo wraps - even though not my choice were very tasty! A great place for a pint and some shared plates!

Chose tapas for the first time in this hotel, and experienced the open air balcony. Tapas was very tasty, and very reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and only too happy to explain their dishes to us. Lovely venue, will return soon!
