Lovely surprise

Stopped in for a quick counter lunch/meal & we were very pleasantly surprised with a fresh warm chicken salad, beautifully presented & fish n chips - both overly generous servings at a very reasonable price !

I had lamb's fry and bacon, my husband had a steak sandwich. Both meals were huge and top quality. Fantastic value. All staff were very friendly.

Once we'd navigated the pokies (use the Barkly Street door would be better) we ordered and chose a table. The food choices were okay pub food options and wines options were also plain and not extensive. The food (chicken florentine and lambs fry with bacon) was plentiful but a bit stodgy. There will be better options for lunch.

We have had both lunch and dinner here and the menu doesn't differ much. Food has always been good never had to complain. But it's noisy and rushed. Decor has not changed in years needs a facelift

Dined here recently on a trip to Castlemaine. Service was okay and fairly quick. Ordered a steak with pepper sauce and a chicken schnitzel with gravy. On both plates the food was swimming in the sauce/gravy, otherwise okay. Just average Pub food at slightly more than average pub food price.

Our family love dinner here. It's local, has great service & the best parmy & coke around. I love my coke & even the post mix tastes like the real thing. It's a lovely hotel with charm & friendly atmosphere.
