Booked dinner for two in the restaurant (downstairs) and from the start the service was excellent despite being very busy. The room has exposed brick walls and timber creating a nice period atmosphere you hope for in a classic old Victorian pub while being clean and modern in style at the same time. A limited number of wines by the glass but the local ones we chose were both very good. Wine by the bottle is getting up in price as with most licensed restaurants nowadays (but we were driving so purchased by the glass). Our main of roast duck (with amazing lentils and truffle salted potatoes and radicchio) was awesome. We will return! .

Looking at the historic Empire Hotel, you could be forgiven for overlooking it as a dining venue. However, the food is beautifully cooked and served, by the owners themselves. It feels welcoming and homely, just the sort of atmosphere that pubs are known for. But the food is really good, and the wines cover all tastes, including local wineries. I had a lovely porterhouse steak for mains, with duck fat potatoes. For starters we had kingfish cervice in apple dashi. The wine was a local Shiraz, recommended by the staff. There is a menu special for 2 or 3 courses, competitively priced. Overall, we thought this place should be higher up the agenda for discerning diners in Beechworth.

My husband and I were away for the weekend and booked dinner at this restaurant. We arrived early so came for drinks first and were told we were welcome to enjoy the drinks at our table in the restaurant. Once seated, the wait staff were absolutely wonderful, full of knowledge and very attentive. Also, directed us to another brewery after my husband had drunk a few of the beers that were only a 4 minute walk away. The food and drinks were first class. We are so grateful we chose her to dine for our Saturday night. Will definitely dine here again when we are in the area. Thank you for a wonderful night.

This was a great find and a most enjoyable meal. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent wine options and mains and desserts were delicious and inventive. Having the choice of 2 or 3 courses is a welcome idea. Excellent value and happy to recommend.
