Ordered pizza for dinner on a very busy Saturday night - they were ready really quickly and geez were they delicious - very fresh ingredients and the best bases. Want to eat them again. The General has a real family vibe like an old school pub. Really great place to eat or have a drink.

We went for a drive with the kids on a very wet cold day. Ended up at this wonderful place! Warm and very inviting we stayed for lunch. Food was huge and absolutely beautiful, not one complaint at all. Staff were amazing. So accomodating. We wanted to watch Foxtel, they sorted it all for us so we were very happy!... More

What an incredible and awesome place. From the very first instance walking in, the staff, the ambience and wow, what a view. Our family, 7 adults and 5 kids over 3 generations were staying in the Alps for a family birthday gathering. We looked for a place for the Sunday lunch and the General was recommended. What a great choice.... More

Where to start?! Stephen and Linny were beyond the perfect hosts and their hospitality was the best we had come across in our travels. The first night we had arrived late in the evening and Stephen stayed back to show us to our gorgeous apartment and even opened up their Deli so we could get some tea. The next day,... More

Went to Hotham village for supplies and had lunch at the 'G'. Friendly service, nice food, great cider -PipSqueak - and stunning views. Limited range of groceries available but some wines/spirits were available.

Undoubtedly very nice - great pizzas, nice enough dinner options albeit pricey for what they were given there is no competition at this time of the year My family all preferred the lunch menu but it was unavailable for dinner where the much more pricey options were our only choice Wine pricey also I would think if they wanted to...

We chanced upon The General after a walk along the Razorback on a hot summer's day and it provided the perfect rest stop with delicious food. The Genny Burger and The Korean Crispy Chicken Burger were hits in our group of 5. As was the nachos and the Black Snake pizza (on thin crust). A side serve of the miso... More

This is a great little spot. A General Store, a pool hall, a bar, and a restaurant! The staff are friendly, charming and efficient. The food is wonderful. Great wine and drink list. The views are spectacular. There is indoor and outdoor seating.
