          Terrific place for family dinner, particularly the 'indoor beer garden' out the back - perfect for chilly Ballarat nights. The staff were fantastic - nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend the crumbed pork cutlet.

          The staff were friendly, the location ideal and the off street parking excellent. Also the on-site cafe was good and, generally, convenient. However, there was a desperate lack of shelf or drawer storage in the room and the failure to advise of the possibility (probability?)...More
