Have just dined at this excellent pub. The decor is simple and pleasant, and the food excellent. Don’t miss it in Beechworth. We started with the red lentil / coconut dip and a separate course of cured ocean trout. Then moved onto the lamb rump with a middle eastern flavour and a separate salad. Everything is made in house. There were a variety of other dishes we would have loved to have tried, but there were only two of us. Dishes going to other tables looked similarly fabulous. The current owners (including the chef) bought the hotel 6 years ago. Support them. It’s a delightful find in a small town with a couple of other more up market restaurants, and this, in simpler surrounds but food to love. Service was delightful from Andy the owner and Emily behind the bar. Thank you.

A superb experience from the moment we walked in. Food was sensational (don't bother with the $170 degustation menu around the corner), cocktails were amazing (try the Rose Hancock). Andrew on front-of-house is an informative, friendly and professional dude. If you are in Beechworth, eat here.

Absolutely superb dinner tonight! We are in Beechworth for one night only en route from Sydney to Melbourne and we are chuffed to bits we ended up in the Empire as the food was fantastic. 3 of us had steaks and one the duck and I can honestly say it was the best steak I’ve had for ages. Great service, we sampled the local wine and felt throughly spoiled!

Looks very old from outside. Which it is from goldrush era. Inside was beautiful. The staff were helpful and friendly. our waiter was Andrew and he was very knowledgeable with wine and menu suggestions. One guest was gluten intolerant but the menu was very gluten free friendly. We all had different selections and loved the food. I had steak and it was cooked to perfection. The trout came in a gluten free option and was delicious. Good night and obviously well known as it filled up quickly, so make a booking.
