Made a booking at the last moment for seven. Happily, The Surly Goat made room for us. I haven’t eaten this well for ages. Succulent calamari, fantastic steak and an outstanding creme brûlée. Couldn’t be happier. Superior quality at more than reasonable prices. Thank you!

A top spot to go for a leisurely quiet meal and drink. Great menu. Great beer (beer on tap not mainstream). Great host (Simon). Great service - staff gracious, polite, helpful and patient. Reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

The Surly Goat is a place to eat and drink, whether at the bar; by the roaring fireplace; or in one of the intimate dining spaces overlooking the tree lined gully and walking paths of Hepburn Springs. There’s also a courtyard out the back to be enjoyed in the warmer months with a cool drink or two.
