If you’re after a good old fashioned pub meal you won’t be disappointed at The Old Boundary Hotel. We went on a Thursday at 6:30pm after having made a reservation that day. There are a lot of people in town for the Elvis exhibition so...booking was a good idea. It was humming with happy diners and many seemed to be locals which were all good signs. Our meals were ready in a flash! I had the calamari & hubby had the battered whiting which were both delicious & a good size for hungry tourists. I also really enjoyed my Bendigo dry G & T! There are many historic photos on the walls, these along with the exposed brick walls & a warm fire added to a very relaxed historic ambience. A great pub!More

Good food, great staff & good atmosphere. Many eating places were closed Monday nights we were so pleased to find The Old Boundary was open and we were not disappointed.

This hotel provided a very nice meal and the service was very quick which was surprising in that the Bistro was completely filled and we were 12 of us at our table. Food was hot and delicious. Only complaint and this is not about the...food or service it is the lack of car parking. We had to park a good distance from the hotel and it was not too good on a wet night,More

Been here several times for lunch and enjoyed it both times. Good menu selection. One issue inside some of the padded seats very low to table. Time for new seats. The meals lovely and large, salads fresh. Aracini balls tasty. Steaks tender and of course...the parma delicious. Inside the actual pub can feel little crowded, better seating on the indoor extension and brighter. We recommend a visit for a meal, you won’t be disappointed. The prices for meals consistent with other pubs.More

Beautiful atmospheric old world pub. Was a really nice place to spend a few hours, friendly service. Food was average pub fare, nothing stand out. I probably wouldn't return again for the food, but definitely return again for the atmosphere and with the knowledge that...it'll include an ok feed.More

Both of us really enjoyed our lunch time specials, drinks included with meals. Ambience was excellent, quiet and peaceful. Toilets were polished and everything was very covid safe. Staff were lovely and all in all an excellent place for lunch. 😁😁

This place never fails to deliver. This is our go to pub for dinner with the family because it provides everything we need, great food and friendly service. We came out for dinner with the family on Friday night, the bar was busy with the...raffle but the service in the restaurant was still good. I had the Pork Belly which was delicious, served with a potato rosti and a fresh fennel and apple salad. The cackle was nice and crispy and the Cider jus was yum. Hubby had the seafood pasta, which is his go to meal. There was a good selection of seafood including mussels, prawns, scallops. He was very impressed it was a good size portion and worth the $30. The kids had their usual meals of nuggets and chips and schnitzel and chips, both good value meals. We finished off with a shared Vacherin, which we all love. So great to see the place busy again.More

No, the Old Boundary Hotel is an old time pub serving good food. The hotel is situated in the older area of Bendigo and it is great to walk around and have a look at the beautiful homes which were built during the gold rush... More
