Our little family recently had a fantastic stay at the Argyle Inn. We were greeted with smiles, a beautiful dinner, amazing cocktails and a fresh, clean and comfortable room with an immaculate ensuite. We loved gazing at the stars from the veranda, and having coffees in the restaurant in the morning. I don't usually take the time to write a review but I had to. This is one of those really special places. Well done Argyle. We would love to come back next year.

An uplifting end to a less fruitful 4WD adventure weekend. Came across this place by accident and the food / ambience/service/live music was very nice indeed. If I wasn't going offshore fishing tomorrow I'd be staying here. It's nice. Underlined. Kangaroo was delicate, desert light, wine nice too.

This was our third visit and the Argyle never fails to impress. The rooms are very comfortable. However it is the food which is always fresh, inovative and impressive with friendly and welcoming country service. Will definitely be back.

Have eaten here many times now and always enjoy our visit. Good food, good service. Definitely worth the drive if you are from out of town. Don't forget the good coffee, fresh pastries, eggs and sourdough on Saturday mornings along with Brendan from Glenbrae Produce offering his fresh market produce for sale out the front. A lovely way to treat yourself and catch up with locals at the same time. Beautiful community here.

This is one of the most incredible meals we have ever had. The way the chef did the lamb with a crackling was exquisite. The live music exceptional. So glad we went out of our way to visit this country pub.

Great country hotel and restaurant. Very warm comfortable room. Friendly staff. Open fires. Pet friendly. Country menu. Amazing breakfast of freshly baked goods from the resident baker Dave, including home baked bread, croissants, ham and cheese pastries, pulled pork turnovers, apple and rhubarb Danish. Friendly country town well worth a visit

Set within prime grazing country the Argyle Inn is 5 stars in every box. We found understated excellence in service and world class food from Hugh's kitchen. Truly a destination in itself.

We stayed in the area so came for dinner and then returned for breakfast the next day. Unspoken sophisticated with a sense of prestige in the air. Small menu yet delicious meals. Friendly service. Comfortable seating and fire going. Will be recommending to friends. Set in a beautiful part of New South Wales.

My friend and I stayed at the Argyle Inn as an overnight stop for a weekend cycling tour in the area.

As fortune had it, we arrived soaking wet and very cold having cycled through hours of rain in cold conditions. To say the welcome we received upon arrival was 'warm', is an understatement.

Over the following hours we were treated to some amazing food, tasty drinks and incredible hospitality.

What was initially 'just a place to stay for the night', ended up becoming one of the highlights of the weekend.

Thank you to the owners and Deborah for making our stay at the Argyle Inn such a memorable one!

If I could give a 10/5, I would.

I recently stayed at The Argyle Inn in Taralga and I have to say, it's hard to fault this place. The food is incredible - they put so much effort into cooking as much as they can from scratch and the result is truly impressive. The interior of the hotel has also been sensitively restored, adding to the charm and character of the place.

What really sets The Argyle Inn apart, however, is the staff. They are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the provenance of their food, which only adds to the overall experience. Whether you're a foodie or just someone who appreciates good hospitality, The Argyle Inn is definitely worth an overnight trip from Sydney.

Overall, I highly recommend The Argyle Inn. From the amazing food to the stunning restoration and excellent service, this is truly a gem of a hotel in Taralga.

My husband and I went there for lunch on 27 January 2023 and were totally disappointed with the food and cost. I had been there several years ago and had the chef's suggestion and it was superb but this was a real let down.

They don't offer the chef's selection anymore and therefore there is only a limited menu to choose from. My husband had the duck (tiniest leg I have ever seen) and not much else on the plate and I had the gnocchi (enough to feed a small child). The entree was nice. Should have know it was going to be bad as when we sat at the table there was a dead fly on the table and another blow fly buzzing around. Total bill was $114 for a shared entree, 2 very small mains and a beer and glass of wine. Totally disgusting and we were still hungry. I will never be going back.

We did not stay at the hotel but driving back from Wombeyan Caves, which were closed and made us feel like a waste of a trip. We stumbled across the Argyle inn which made our trip totally worth while. We dined in the beautiful decor of what I think is the main dining room, and the food was exceptional. for starters, we had the homemade cheese with sourdough and We had the lamb for our mains. I only wish we had time for dessert, but we had to hit the road would definitely come back again. The waitresses were so hospitable, and we were so surprised to find out that the amazing talent of the young Chef.

Great Country pub, but has a level of sophistication. Make a day of winery, art gallery, and doing touristy things out here

The Argyle Inn was a great place to stay for the weekend, especially in winter. The building itself has had a lot of thought put into it's renovation and maintains it's old charm alongside the modern updates in the bar area. We loved the sitting room upstairs, especially the massive fireplace.

Service from start to finish was amazing, as was the quality of food. We ate in the restaurant both evenings and rather than being presented with a menu we were given options of what was available, which was something slightly different. It worked out around $70-80 per head for 2 courses. Breakfast was also great and included in the stay. The bar had some decent beers on tap from Capital Brewing in Canberra and offered takeaways too.

Taralga itself is small. There was a great coffee shop just up the street, another (slightly less polished) pub, and a couple of other shops. Apart from that the nearest civilisation is in Goulburn which is 30-40 minutes drive away. If you come here be prepared to stay in Taralga for the weekend.

The only downside to our stay was a noisy fan below our room (6) that turned on and off throughout the night meaning we didn't sleep very well.

Fix this up and its a solid 5 stars!

Unfortunately I had my birthday lunch here with my family and we were hugely disappointed by the service and the food. It's not cheap for a three course meal but the main meal was basically a baked dinner, the berries in the dessert were still frozen and the tart element made it inedible. The icing on the cake was when we asked for an extra spoon the waitress gave us one from the next table which was only just vacated by the previous patrons - in covid times especially, that is just not on! This restaurant needs a serious intervention, thankfully there's better places to eat around.

This is about our 7th visit to The Argyle, each a few months apart, and we always leave vowing to return.
The staff are friendly and reflective of a good working environment, they are eager to please and happy to talk.
We like the set lunch menu, no hastles - no decisions, but if you have an allergy or a problem they will strive to accomodate a change to suit.
The ingredients are locally sourced and masterfully cooked, the winelist has some unusual labels and is reasonably priced.
All in all a relaxing laid back experience.

Made the trip down to Taralga from Sydney, and to be honest the Argyle Inn is a big reason why we keep coming back to this beautiful country town. Service along with location plus being lover of fine wine and craft beer, this place ticks all the box's. I must say that's not the best part. The food is extraordinary and the farm to fork experience is one of a kind. They cook to the seasons and it's 10/10.
