Good service and great food. Enjoyed being able to sit outside on a warm summer evening. They were happy to accommodate a vegan option that wasn't a standard offering which was much appreciated.

We had a great dinner at Ballarat Trading Co! Our drinks were strong but tasty. The steak was delicious and the chocolate brownie is definitely worth saving some room for! Great date night

What a great historic pub! Loved the decor and atmosphere. Food was excellent: we had the mussels, beef Croquettes, pork belly, and pork ribs. All were beautifully cooked and served. Prices were good - what you'd expect from a nice pub.

The food is always good at ballarat. And what a nice way to spend an early evening sitting in the street having lovely dinner.
we had a couple of starters, amazing! Squid and mussels / shrimp were 2 nice entrées. When the main arrived we realised that was too much. I had the beef burger. Much better burger than Fergburger, just saying. Big, cooked perfectly, the sauce was nice and the fries on side, yummy.
no dessert because too full.
the wine list is fine, plenty of choices.
Service was fine.
I will come back

Great atmosphere and staff. Went purely to order the meat share platter that we had a year ago, was still tasty but not of the same standard as the previous year so was slightly disappointed.

Lovely warm winter atmosphere with impeccable service and really amazing food. I got the full rack of ribs which was huge and the accompaning slaw was delicious. Ny dinner date had a steak which she kept praising throughout so no complaints there either. Finished up with the sticky toffee pudding (as recommened by our server) and it was the perfect sweet treat to end our meal. Definitely recommend!

Lovely food and atmosphere. Was a little slow getting food but one of our party ordered well done steak so we thought that's why it was slow. Unfortunately when it came it was only medium well so not sure why it was so slow.
Besides that we food was Lovely, the kids fish and chips had such light crunchy batter, yum.

Dined on a very busy Saturday night during the Luma festival. Although it was packed full, service was fairly prompt. Food was good pub food. The servers were pleasant and prompt. Great atmosphere. Bit annoying you can't get a draft beer or cider smaller than a handle but a minor negative.

The Lamb rump was excellent with the roast kumera mash the key, full of flavor.
The eye fillet was more vertical than horizontal and was beautiful, 200g was just enough.
Staff were really nice but only mistake was I got cauliflower instead of the calamari ordered to start. They did have a bus load of tourists turn up at once so were run off their feet by the looks. I didn't say anything cause I didn't even mind.

We were made very welcome. Seated in a warm cosy spot with window views. The waitress was very attentive and helpful. The food was served promptly and very well presented. My dining companion had the salmon which she felt was excellent while I had the lamb which was beautifully cooked. A very enjoyable and pleasant experience. Really good value for money. Thank you.
