Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed in the motel,room was basic but well equipped. Decided to eat in the restaurant. What a great decision! We shared the pan fried barramundi and 5 spiced duck. Both dishes were full of flavour, the duck dish was colourful! We finished off with...a lemon tart and raspberry sorbet. Staff very attentive, chef appreciated the feedback. Would highly recommend.More

Well decorated, service was impeccable and the wine list extensive. The vegetable lasagne was huge and full of flavour. Hubby had steak which was cooked to his liking. Sadly, the Panacotta dessert was very busy with too many flavours and the panacotta itself was very...rubbery. Not light and wobbly like it should be.More

This is a nice contemporary pub slightly on pricey side. The decor is modern but cosy. The menu sizeable and slightly on the pricey side however very good quality so justified. Flavours are perfect and portions are good too. Bar staff aren't hugely knowledgeable on...cuisines but are enthusiastic, polite and attentive. Well worth its high rating and definitely worth a visit.More

This is a popular venue with locals in Bendigo. The service is good and it has a pleasant atmosphere. My companions enjoyed Rabbit Ragout pasta, which looked tasty. I had the extremely rich Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder, generous portion served with mash and crisp beans...with a tasty jus.More

This was absolutely terrible! I had the duck special which was overcooked so that it was chewy and tough, the fat was not cooked so slimy texture. There were only two pieces bites of duck (luckily and could barely get though that leaving half. I...also had honey carrots on the side, which were inedible. They were cold and raw. I write this review because we were very polite and gave them feedback on the night, as a courtesy. The surprise was they barely acknowledged the problem, didn’t offer an apology. We expected the chef to at least speak to us, particularly as we’d been so polite on receiving an inedible meal. This was a $200 meal to boot. D Bad form.More

What a gem of a place - drive through coffee and bottle shop. Stayed in one of their motel rooms - they have done a great job of modernising the rooms whilst maintaining the original design of the place. So, feels like a 70s motel...in the best possible way. Dinner was excellent. Staff very friendly - all round great experience.Would highly recommendMore

We dined at the Broughams Arms Hotel when visiting Bendigo last month having read the great reviews, and were certainly not disappointed. The staff were all excellent and provided great customer service. - especially our wonderful waitress Ashley who explained the menu, answered our questions...and came by regularly to see if all was ok, even though the restaurant was full and she had a large group of diners beside us to cover. Our drinks arrived promptly as did our meals, which we thoroughly enjoyed. We felt our dining experience at the Brougham Arms was far superior to other restaurants we have visited in our travels and highly recommend visiting if in Bendigo.More

We came here as a business group for dinner. They were very patient with us as our group came in one by one over an hour. They brought us ice water as a matter of course. The food was interesting with a good portion size...and the restaurant offered some vegetarian dishes. The bar area only had "pub favourites", with a meat orientation and no vegetarian options.More

What a great place! This was our first time here but we’ll be back. The starter bacon pesto Cobb bread loaf ($12.90) was cheesy and wonderful - enough for four people. The pan-baked Asian barramundi ($35.90) was delicious and plentiful. The sous vide duck breast...on cashew mash ($39.90) was also delicious and beautifully presented. The Pondalowie Shiraz ($50) was the perfect drop. The staff and managers were friendly, welcoming, and efficient. Worth a visit.More

I arrived here from Seymour and easily found a carpark behind the pub, I found it a bit strange walking in through the drive thru bottleshop... if there was another way to the carpark I didn't discover it. But that is a minor thing. Inside...the pub is lovely... dark for more informal catch ups... so I am glad that none of us required a laptop and this was an informal farewell to a colleague. Service here was quite professional. Value was what one would expect in a pub. I ordered linguini carbonara- it came with very generous servings of garlic within in... so fortunately I would not be returning to have face-to-face meetings after this lunch. It was quite tasty though and the serving was very generous. Five of us went out for lunch and we all enjoyed our meals. This is a pub I would certainly return to.More

I cannot fault the food and the service - the staff are well trained and very professional and the food is top class - a terrific menu. Also, an excellent wine list with one of the owners taking the time to make some very nice...recommendations. We will definetly squeeze another visit in to the Brougham Arms when next in BendigoMore

Just what we needed. After travelling from Sydney and dining at sub par restaurants on our trip South we found something that is truly a gem. From a kitchen with excellent chefs through staff who have been drilled in service and etiquette the restaurant at...this establishment is one we will return to next time in Bendigo.
