Good ambience. The service wasn't great, we were asked what drinks we wanted initially but never given a drinks menu, after asking for one, we weren't sure if it was table service or up at the bar as the girl never came back. A different girl took our order and the food was good and came out promptly enough. Menu didn't have a great range of variety, but good overall.

As usual, impeccable food on a varied menu well served by attentive staff and a good choice of wines by the glass (and a small but elegant list of bottled wines) continue to ensure an enjoyable meal for couples, families and groups.

Great meal with a large choice on the menu. The staff were very friendly & attentive with table service. Some of the steaks were a little pricey but refelected the current market. We would go again

Food was great. A little disappointing when ordering drinks to go with dessert and they never arrived. Went to pay the bill and they were on the bill despite the gentleman behind the bar saying that they were out of the particular bottle. Fair enough: but would have (a) expected someone to come to the table and suggest an alternative and (b) would not have expected it to be on the bill when I went to pay.
Overall, decent place. Just let down by a slip in service.

Fantastic experience during a tough covid time. Accomodating to move us from searing in the dining area out to the bar to watch the races. The burgers were great. Service was great. I’d come back in a heartbeat. We’ll done guys and look forward to coming back when full crowds are allowed

Polite and friendly staff, who managed the covid-19 restrictions well. We managed to book a table for 2 near the end of the lunch time window, so the place gradually got quieter as the other diners finished and left. Which was not a bad thing.

Food was good and very filling (as usual). You dont go home hungry after eating at the Brougham Arms.

Bear was cold, the food was good and the table service was friendly and fast. What more could you ask for.

4 of us selected the steak and then selected the 3 sides for $20. The 3 sides were more than enough for the four of us and we even shared with our 5th guest whom had selected the salmon. All meals were amazing!

My partner and I came in for her birthday dinner. We enjoyed 3-4 appetizers as well as a few drinks. This was all brought out together. The food was great and the service was even better. We won't hesitate to come back.

It was the first time (in Bendigo) where we had no issues with a meal after letting them know of allergens. We do not usually go out because most places in Bendigo cannot deal with even the simplest of allergy. However the staff at the Brougham Arms was really attentive and the meal came out perfectly allergy-friendly.

Great food and great service, we will definitely come back.

The perfect place to take my elderly brother for lunch. He is a resident of nearby Freedom Aged Care and he really enjoys the porterhouse steak medium cooked with pepper sauce. His only disappointment is that it only comes with potato and that the side salad he ordered was a bowl of lettuce with half a tomato. My salt and pepper squid was a 10/10. Delicious.
