This is our third visit to the Royal George Hotel in Kyneton and we were so happy to have given this place another go after not getting a seat on our other visits. The staff were very welcoming and helpful with the wine & craft beer selection at the bar. We enjoyed a great bistro meal as it was close... More

Went to The Royal George with my parents to enjoy the great craft beers on tap. I had heard there was a new chef so we ordered buffalo wings, calamari, mushroom risotto and arancini balls and what a treat it was. Every mouthful melted in our mouths. Service was with a smile. Was a great night. Definitely worth the visit.

It is quite clear through the fiery attempts made in response to bad reviews, that is place is going under - and for good reason. I went with my elderly parents one evening and regret the decision ever since. The food we ordered arrived over an hour later (even though the pub was near empty), and the 'quality' of food... More

Had a great time with a girlfriend and this fabulous pub. It was warm and cosy and we had a long and lingering lunch at the bar in front of the fire. Great staff, great food an great wines. We will be back

It was very clear early on that there was new management. Our entree platter arrived and one of the dips fell off the board as it was being placed on the table by the waitress. It took about 15 minutes for the waitress to come back and replace it, then provide cutlery. When the main meals finally arrived, the sizes... More

We are terrible sorry for your bad experience. I can't disagree with your comments. The manager who was with us for a short period, along with all the chef's from August have been replaced. I'm sure you know why. The hotel is now under new management, along with a new chef and kitchen staff. Providing great service and good quality... More

What a shame this once iconic Hotel is no longer a the 'go to' restuarant. With a wine list of only 4 white wines, one of them unavailable and poor service after 30 minutes we decided to leave and try elsewhere. Having dined here several years ago in the now gone private dining room we looked forward to the slow... More

Thank you for your review - I would just like to refresh your memory on what wines you turned down and found 'unacceptable' before you were offered the last resort the 'house wine'. We believe these wines are some of the best the region has to offer. Chardonnay - Curly Flat, Hesket Estate, Midhill Reisling - Jasper Hill, Granite Hill,... More

We stopped here on the way back from a girls weekend hoping for a quick and easy lunch. The lunch menu had great choices from Pizza's to Terrine, simple snacks, classic pub fare and healthier salad options. We had a ploughman's style charcuterie plate show casing local produce mixed with delicious delights from further afield. We teamed it with a... More

We were hopeful that this place would be fantastic based on how the booking guy Chris sounded. Then we started to hear some bad reviews from the locals.. not wanting to cancel our booking of 8, we thought we would give it a go. We turned up and was quickly seated, but then had to wait a good time to... More
