Judges’ Comments 2017
wonderful craft beers with meals & service to match
The Cambrian Hotel has become one of Bendigo’s best venues for good food, drinks and friendly service. The right drinks to compliment your choice of foods. There’s an outstanding variety of boutique and craft beer available and the beer garden is great for parties and large groups. Our meal was the best we’ve had at the Cambrian that has reached a new and exciting level. We loved that the kitchen has embraced BBQ’s and smoked meats, because it’s a such a delicious way to cook. In addition to traditional pub foods you’ll find exceptional specials including excellent Asian dishes. The house smoked ribs really grabbed our attention with high quality meat, sides and garnishes, and the marinade made this dish one of the best things I’ve tasted all year. The beverage list at the Cambrian just gets better and better. Its really pushing the diversity and quality of craft beers from Regional Victoria. More are on tap and more to choose from than ever, and good coffee is available. The Cambrian Hotel offers excellent value for money. It serves well prepared food that shows the passion of the chef. And the portions are generous!
Amazing range of local and regional beers. Great wines. Outstanding customer service. Good pub atmosphere and beer garden. Excellent quality meals. Generous servings. Good coffee. Very good value for money.
