What the judges said in 2017

Exceptional Country hotel 

The Farmers’ Arms Creswick – just a shot drive outside Ballarat – exudes warmth, comfort and style the whole family can enjoy. An authentic country hotel serving quality foods, drinks, service and value for money. The style and cuisine are contemporary and its good to see the high standards, use of quality local ingredients and impressive presentation have been maintained since we judged last year. The entrees, mains and desserts were flavoursome and impressive and service was excellent, warm and welcoming. There’s a wide ranging beer and wine list that includes many local drops available by the glass. Great attention to detail was shown including good coffee that is sometimes lacking in hotels, and the value for money at the Farmers’ Arms Creswick was good.
