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.

Booked however running late so called to let them know. Cameron answered and advised no worries don’t rush drive safe. On arrival we were welcomed and seated. Venue clean, staff friendly helpful and respectful . Food was fantastic. Great range of wine to choose from....Well worth the drive. The only concern is the toilets need grab rails and perhaps the door needs to swing outwards as my elderly friend really struggled and I couldn’t get in to help. Will come back again.More

We had Sunday lunch at the Tatong Pub. As soon as we walked through the door we were warmly welcomed by the young staff behind the bar. The staff were exceptional. The food was delivered promptly, was delicious and generous. The ambiance was spot on...- the music was pleasant and played at the perfect level. Well worth a visit!More

An excellent meal with the tastiest salad & veges I've had for a long time, if ever. The tavern & it's garden is clean and very well maintained. We both had the chicken parma and I asked for veges & salad instead of chips. It's...rare that a restaurant will accommodate this request, but it was no issue here. The veges were a great mix (almost, but not quite, like a ratatouille) and the salad had the best dressing. So, more than just peas & carrots in the veges and more than just oil & vinegar in the salad dressing. The coffee was also excellent. And under $5.More

With the newly renovated kitchen now in full swing the Tavern is again open for business. We visited last night ( good idea to book ahead) and enjoyed some of the best Pub atmosphere anywhere. Well done to everyone and the live band was good...fun also.More

Travelling through north-east Victoria on a dirt-bike. Stopped in at the Tatong Hotel and was greeted with a welcoming atmosphere, warm fire and good food. The staff were all friendly and the local (perhaps regular clientele) were welcoming. Accommodation was basic but clean and appropriately...priced. Most importantly in June after a day on the bike, it was warm. I will stay there again when I return that way.More

We have not been to the tavern in quite some time. New managed so thought we should go for a try. Credit to them the place looks amazing, it was just disappointing that the meals were not great. Ordered salmon.. Completely cold and raw in...the middle, veggies were also basic and no prentation. Pasta meal also sent back as only just warm. For the money we spent we were hoping for a little better. It's in a terrific spot so hopefully they can improve on there mealsMore

Returned after a very unpleasant experience with the previous owner. Booked for lunch, arrived and there was one other table if 4 already there. Sat outside and waited for the waitress, ordered meals ( only 2 of us in the group) After waiting 45 minutes,...no meals had been brought out for any patrons ( a bowl of soup did come out) I asked the waitress to check how much longer we would be waiting, she replied that the chef wasn’t able to work today due to family issues and the person cooking in the kitchen was simply helping out. I said to her when she brought the meals out that their communication was very poor and needed to be improved. The meal was quite nice but we had to eat quicker than we would have liked due to appointments back in townMore

The Tatong Tavern is a beautiful pub well worth travelling off the beaten track for. Interesting and friendly with camping and caravanning allowed in the garden next to the pub. The menu appeared to be regular pub food but I was stunned with the quality...of our meals. My friend had one of the best steaks she’s ever had and I had bangers and mash. I was expecting something pretty standard but hey were thick Cumberland sausages and magnificent. Anytime I’m heading north from Melbourne, I’ll make a point of going past here. This place well deserves the patronage of a lot more people.More

We visited for lunch to see the artwork on their tank but stayed for lunch. We sat outside with out dog and the outdoor area is beautiful. The meals were delicious too. Highly recommend a detour here if you’re travelling up the Hume towards Benalla.

We went for an early dinner on a bitter cold Saturday night & were lucky to arrive on Night 2 of a new menu. My husband had the Shank Pie (amazing puff pastry pie with a whole lamb shank in it!). I had the slow...cooked beef cheek and loved every mouthful. A good wine list choice too for a country pub. Highly recommended !More
