“Almost Perfect”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

The high quality of the meals and desserts in presentation and flavors get high praise. Restored hotel, Quiet Monday evening,very good service but not perfect. Too many enthusiastic 'mate''s and 'guys' from the young waiter but very pleasant. Guess I am just a bit older but it happens a bit these days. A generational (gentle) grumble.The pleasant ambiance was slightly detracted from by a little too upbeat background music, but that may be just a personal preference.
But it's all about the food in the end - 10/10! Quite adequate servings. The desserts were a highlight with complementary coffees with them. Recommended.

“A classic Australian country pub”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

The Echuca Hotel is a refurbished classic Australian country town hotel. The renovations retained the original mouldings and trip which give a rich ambience. The food is average to above average and the prices are reasonable. It is good to wee these lovely old buildings thriving in the modern age.

“Average meal at above average price.”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

We dined at the Echuca hotel after reading previous reviews on this website. Nice old pub with lovely new dining room, good range of food on the menu although slightly higher than average pub prices. We chose the lamb roast based on a previous review which suggested the roast 'was as good as you will get' - unfortunately not so on this occasion. The lamb was dry and over cooked, the cauliflower and broccoli was smothered in gluggy white sauce and overall it was nowhere near as good as the delicious roast offered by the Moama RSL club. We actually wondered if, as we were early diners, perhaps we had been served remnants of the lunch time roast rather than a freshly prepared evening meal.

“An old favorite”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

We have eaten here on many, many occasions over the years and there was a group of us that were regular Sunday night diners for a long time !!! The service is always excellent and the staff have always been very obliging to accommodate our needs - such as 4 extras arriving that we hadn't booked for and they just add another table for us!! The food has always been great and we love the fact you get an opportunity to choose a bar size meal as not all of us are huge eaters!!! With the new dining area it is warm in winter and cool in summer and plenty of room between tables. The beer garden is ideal for those with children as they get to move around freely and there is no nicer place on a hot night than sitting out there!!! In fact there is a group of us going there for dinner tonight and really looking forward to it. If you like gambling the Echuca has a TAB and pokies and is always open early. A great pub to dine out in with Family and Friends - Thanks for all the good times Dave, Pete and Michelle and all the other staff - when we get back in October we will look forward to coming down to visit from our new home in Cohuna!!!!
