Meals came out quickly . These were best meals we had for years they were cooked perfectly with plenty to eat on the plate. Nes Next time we will be back to club for our meals.

The veggies were obviously leftovers from the carvery & were very boring. The Pesto Carbonara my partner had was very watery and bland. Wasnt a nice thick creamy sauce at all. It wasnt a bad night as such but just disappointing as I have previously had some delicious meals there Wont be rushing back

                                                                Thanks so much Rob for your feedback. We are training so many new staff at the moment so mistakes will happen. It is good for us to learn these things however so that we can use it with our staff training. Great to see you were still happy with the standard of food served and hopefully next time you are in the staff will have a few weeks under their belts!

Ordered 2 kids meals, a small chicken parma and a steak, plus dessert. All meals were a good size and cooked well. My husbands steak was a little over cooked for his liking, but it happens. We were there early and found the service to be quick and friendly. Restaurant was clean and tidy - no complaints and next time we are in Ballarat we will eat here again.

Bar staff got simple drinks order wrong. Sausages and mash very basic meal with peas. Vegetarian curry lacking in imagination and almost tasteless. Accompanying rice came out of the dish in one crusty lump. Not sure how you can stuff up rice. Apple Crumble was nice with plenty of ice cream. Ours was an impromptu visit late in the evening and we had no trouble getting a table. Wouldn't rush back.

                                                                We ordered calamari for my wife and a porterhouse steak medium rare for me. My wife was very happy with her meal but my steak was served medium to well done. I would have liked to return the meal but this does not work as you finish up watching your partner eat until your replacement meal is served and then they watch you eat. The answer to the problem is to cook the steak properly the first time or order something else that they are less likely to mess up.

We would be happy to redo both meals on the night to prevent the situation happening again. Sometimes our chefs may not get it right but we are happy to learn from the experience and work with you to make your experience better. Please let the staff know when you have a problem as it is the best way for us to improve! Regards, BLC

                                                                Hi Rick. I am sorry that you arrived too late for our kitchen. Our bistro does close at 2.30pm but as the facility is open otherwise the website hours do reflect our general operating hours. The website hours and Open Table have since been adjusted to reflect the bistro closure times. We do have snacks available all day in the bar. Thanks very much for your feedback.

I ordered the calamari rings with it which were tasty, but the calamari ring was a skinny spindly piece of ring, the thickness being less than a straw, so was disappointing as i was looking forward to going there after an absence of some years. The other meals were ok, and the kids meals ok. Staff friendly and courteous,

They would have been happy to cook your steak again if you had mentioned something to our wait staff but we appreciate you letting us know because that is how we can improve. Hopefully you won't leave it years again to come back in and try another steak!

Had to move the table because the people on the table behind us kept banging the back of my chair because the tables were too close together, at one stage I couldn’t get out of my chair because the chair behind me was pressed right up against mine. Need a few more different choices on the menu (eg, pasta, garlic prawns etc)

And in our COVID plan the staff are normally very aware of the spacial capacity and need for 1.5m distancing between tables so I apologise that that wasn't met for you. I have since reminded staff to make sure that the guidelines are followed in our bistro correctly.
