This place is a hidden treasure . We celebrated my sons 18th Birthday with a family dinner. Nothing was too much trouble. Staff was polite, pleasant and very helpful. Food was beautiful. Some family had not been before and said they can't wait to come back. Great place. Highly recommend and not too far from Melbourne

Went to order at the bistro register and because they were "snowed under " could we wait twenty minutes to place our order? I've never struck this before . Meals arrived after a long wait and I will say the serves... More

Just after Christmas we made a spur of the moment to lunch at Little River Hotel. We really enjoyed our meals. Two barramundi and salad, one Ribs - all got the nod of approval. I had roast pork with crackling, roast potatoes, and a lovely selection of garden fresh vegies, accompanied by apple sauce and rich gravy - a terrific... More

I had barramundi and salad and my friend had the warm chicken salad. It was very tasty. The Restaurant was full so we ate in the bar. Only complaint is the tables were very dirty and sticky and needed wiping down.

We ordered bruschetta as an entrée and having had bruschetta on many occasions this was definitely not bruschetta. It was basically sliced tomato, small amount of onion and cheese toasted. It tasted ok but was not bruschetta. We both ordered eye fillet steak (medium rare) with chips and salad. We had to pay an additional $2.00 above the $35.00 cost... More

So we decided to phone the day before to indicate that we will be requiring vegetarian meals---- just to ensure all could be catered for. It was fine so off we drove.... A surly female attended to us who stated that a vegetarian meal can be adjusted from the existing dishes-- duck pasta without the duck..... chicken Caesar without the... More

We ate here several times while staying close by and can't speak highly enough of the place. A great country pub with cold beer on tap and an affordable menu of high quality meals. The service is excellent, friendly and relaxed. The publican Kylie could not do enough for us and next time we are down that way we will... More

A hidden gem not too far to travel to for a Sunday lunch if your from Melbourne. We are only a 10 minute drive away and love this place. It's like coming home every time we go.
