Description: For decades the beautifully restored 1910 Healesville Hotel has been a warm and inviting gathering place for locals and tourists alike. Cosy, old-world vibes in the centre of town, serving modern gastropub food (and a few classic pub favourites) with a focus on local produce. A large selection of local beers on tap and an outstanding wine list with many local and international varieties. With roaring fires during winter and cool fans in summer, along with our shaded outdoor beer garden to enjoy the fresh air.

Arranged to meet friends for lunch on Saturday. Website says - we take no bookings, just turn up. So we did, only to be told they weren’t opening the dining room. Only place to sit was the bar, surrounded by people standing waiting to order a drink. Alternatively we could sit outside in 32 degrees. Pretty dismal to say the least. We saw several other groups leaving when we did for the same reason. Their loss! 😕

Don’t do it! Rude Rude Rude! I simply asked if they could recommend a dry white wine from the long list & I received a lecture starting with ‘we’re not that sort of establishment’ the food was pretty much slapped down on the table with zero ‘enjoy your food or is there anything else I can get you?’ My Daughter pointed out that I cook better steak! The young kids in there are pleasant - shame their leader is teaching them how to drive customers away!

We turned up for Sunday lunch @ the Bistro (restaurant closed). Didn't have our beer or wine of choice as they tend to promote locally produced wine.
We ordered the Beer Battered Fish/Chips (King George Whiting) ($30) & poached Chicken with baby Cos salad, streaky bacon& Anchovy dressing.. ($19).
Both were absolute winners, the whiting was in a lovely (non oily) batter, of a good size & was excellent, the poached chicken was faultless & the plate went back very clean.
Money very well spent!

lunch during a week day. 5 Main meals to select from 3 with the name Wagyu (Fancy wording doesn't make a good meal), all Very pricey, No regular beers on tap, only boutique beers -Yuk
Service was quick but the taste was below average. Certainly not worth the money, if we'd been on our own we would of walked out. Wouldn't bother going there again.
