Our meal here was superlative. My friend and I both ordered the Ocean trout, roast garlic skordalia, asparagus and green olives. We were not disappointed. The trout was perfectly cooked and complemented the crisp asparagus and wonderfully earthy garlic skordalia. The menu had many Gluten Free options which made it very hard to choose but as we were hankering for the GF chocolate mousse with tangy blackberry, almond sablée and mascarpone, we reluctantly declined an entree. The atmosphere is casual and friendly, the service prompt and the food on another level. This establishment punches well above its weight. Highly recommended.

If you ever happen to be in Beechworth I cannot recommend enough that you take the opportunity to dine at the Empire Hotel. The pub is non-descript on the corner of High St @ Camp St, but go downstairs to the restaurant & Andy the publican will provide you with a menu & a meal you will rave about. The service is also pretty amazing. Top off the meal with a glass of the white port.
Bellissimo!

Don't be fooled by the basic pub exterior. Inside the pub has been beautifully renovated. The dining room was warm, cosy, and intimate with an open fire for winter. The menu was refined with a good selection of choices, and the staff were knowledgeable and attentive and matched our wine with our meals. It was a fantastic experience that i can not rate highly enough for such a small town. Beechworth is lucky to have you

The food was delicious. Was clean. No riff raff. It was the only pub/restaurant opened on a Saturday night to have a bite. Even though the kitchen would’ve been packing up, they still made us 3 dishes. Forever grateful

The lady in the coffee shop recommended Empire hotel for dinner. And she was right! The meal was delicious, especially the signature dish - duck...
Scott ,who looked after us advised that he chased the ducks this morning..(ha, ha). My Gin &Tonic was served as in the best restaurants, he even asked which Gin I would like. Porterhouse steak was done as we asked. The restaurant was very busy as there were fewer people working but the atmosphere, the cozy table next to fireplace was a bonus.
Excellent wine option. Thank you Scott!!
