The Ballarat Trading Company is a pub / restaurant with a historical decor that gives you plenty to look at and talk about. Food was very good. Kids said one of the best burgers ever. Full table service offered by very friendly staff.

Good service with some great wines on offer. Mulled wine by the fire on a cold afternoon or evening was a favourite.
