“Awesome Pub Grub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

We wandered in to the Black Dog Bistro for dinner last Friday night and it was fab! Lucky as it is literally the only place to eat dinner on a Fri night in Chiltern. I am coeliac and this relaxed, rustic, bustling bistro was happy to accommodate me. I had the risotto and it was as good (if not better) as any I've had. Full of flavour. Hubby's t-bone and vege was enough but not too much and cooked as ordered. Great country pub.

“GREAT RUSTIC ATMOSPHERE. GOOD PUB FOOD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Nice cosy fire to sit near and tasty food. Service on both times we have been there was a little on the slow side but when in the company of friends, that was not an issue.

“Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

Had a meal there in Chiltern - apparently the hotel is under new management and was quite full - service was a little slow but the wait was worth it as the meals were large and well presented.
There were a few groups of people which held up the orders a bit but I am sure the new owners will settle into a routine shortly.
Good luck to them.

“A country pub with good counter meals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

Over the years this pub has had a waxing and waning performance. Right now it seems to be on a peak - maybe new owners? Meals in the 'Black Dog Bistro' are reasonably priced - flathead tails special $17, a great looking Chicken and Mango salad $12.50 (we didn't order this, just saw someone elses'). Range of vegetables with meals are excellent. But a warning - serving sizes are huge, so bring your appetite! This is great pub food. Also available, some local wines, which is fun - we had a great bottle of their 'wine of the week', a local Indigo Jack Tempranillo for $20 - great value and lovely to try some local wine. There are no restaurants in Chiltern for dinner, so as an option for dinner this pub won't dissapoint!
