what the judges said in 2019
The Range combines enjoyable, well-priced food with great activities and views of the impressive Golf facilities. It’s a unique offering. Families with smaller children love the mini golf, while the bigger kids and adults can hit the driving range and practice their swings. Staff were friendly, efficient and eager to help and make suggestions for meals and drinks. Local foods feature strongly on the menu. The cauliflower starter was a standout and perfect for vegans and vegetarians alike. A simple and delicious dish that’s a meal in itself. The battered fish and chips (locally-caught flathead) were an ample size and delicious. The 48-hour Tasmanian beef short rib with green papaya, glass noodle Asian salad was magnificent with the meat surrendering from the bone and a taste that lingered. The red velvet cupcake was served with thickened cream and an excellent raspberry coulis. There was an excellent range of local beers, ciders and wines and a good cocktail list for those wanting something more adventurous. Flying Brick cider, Furphy Ale, Leura and Jack Rabbit wines, featured prominently on the drinks list. The Range is a fantastic place to enjoy for a few lazy hours and one of the best places on the Bellarine for the whole family. Value for money was very good.
Impressive views and facilities. Family friendly. Good meals and drinks list featuring local produce, Good value for money. Much more than an eating-out experience.
