Restaurant food was unfortunately way below average. The steak was thin and unappetising for $46. Chicken dish was very oily. The lamb had a nice flavour but again was very greasy. The fish was not good, one peice was ok but the other was inedible. Kids spaghetti had too much cheese. Deserts, chocolate ones were lovely, panacotta was tasteless and the lemon tart, the base could not be broken to eat.
Nearly $300 late for 5 people was extremely disappointed.

I had steak here about 2 years ago, a very unsatisfactory meal. So I tried it again. A thin chewy cut, no sides, just average chips. Steak at $49 a kg, the cut was maybe 180 grams. A lot of profit there. My daughters steak was below average to. BUT 3 others who really enjoyed other meals. SO AVOID STEAK AT THE BROUGHY

Mum and I enjoyed our Mother's day lunch there. Food was tasty and hot. I had hoped a half size meal option was available as the size for an elderly person was very overwhelming and the vegetables (perfect for me) were too al dente for her. We loved the dessert, the presentation made it a bit more special.

Our meals took about 50mins to come out. My salad was missing its dressing. We asked for dessert menus which weren't delivered and when we finally did get dessert menus, no one returned to take our order.
We did enjoy our meals but the service was definitely lacking.

Have been to the Brougham Arms many times and always had a fantastic time.
It's so convenient to have your room just there.
The locals who go there are also very friendly.
The public bar is great, with lots of sports screens, easy betting access, lots of seating, good food & staff that are even friendlier than the locals.
The option for a fantastic meal in the restaurant side of the pub is also a great option.
Love this place

Poor service food very slow, we timed from first meal to last meal over 1 hour. Some had finished eating before others started (yes we ordered at exact same time). Food is bad quality. Burnt chips, everything over cooked but cold. Staff don't listen, several orders taken wrong then trying to argue and even saying what was on the menu was a mistake. Don't expect them to clear the table either. Worst pub in Bendigo. Used to be good! Won't be back.

We had a great experience staying here. The rooms were way better than we expected. We had the master bedroom and the kids had their own room and there was a lounge tv area and a kitchen and bathroom. Great rooms. The bar and meals area was very warm and inviting and the staff were really professional but allowed you space to enjoy the meals and drinks. I was slightly disappointed we did feel a bit rushed on the night. We were booked for the 8 pm sitting and basically felt super rushed to Order and then we just started on our entree and our mains were dumped on our table. Then we proceeded to have a drink in the main bar and watch the footy finals on tv and they called last drinks at 9.40pm on a Friday night. I will definitely change my review to 5 stars next time if it's a great experience and hopefully all the staff just had a night that they all wanted to get out early. Oh and the menu and food was superb.

I'm still unsure on how to correctly pronounce the name. I had dinner and some drinks, the Parma was large and tasty.
The service from the bar staff was fantastic.

We had amazing service from Anita and Kat on a busy Saturday night at the venue. All seven of us were completely happy with our choice of meals, with generous serves of delicious fare. Both girls were attentive to all our needs, and the prices are well below what others would ask for similar meals. This is now our favourite venue in Bendigo.

Fantastic food, lovely inobtrusive service. My steak was perfect, the accompanying jus was a bit sweet. The duck was delicate but delicious, the cashew mash really a great touch.

Only quibbles were: arty-shaped plates look lovely but make resting your cutlery a genuine inconvenience; and no serving utensils for the side dishes meant having to use your own fork and knife. A spoon with each side would be more hygienic and make serving a lot easier.

Next time we're in Bendigo, it's on our Must Do Again list :-)

Was served by an exceptional young lass named Hayley, she was very kind and patient

Delicious food and lovely atmosphere, somewhere to take the whole extended family.

Fantastic food! Great service with a Relaxing atmosphere! Probably one of the best pubs in bendigo for quality food. One of the best eye filet steaks I've eaten, the duck was cooked beautifully. It's an absolute must dine in experience!

Mucked up the pre-orders at the start but the quality of the meals were outstanding and have altered my review due to that alone. Will be back after this due to the meals. Thanks to the manager also for noticing the review and making contact.
Hats off to the chef! And Matt the manager. His communication skills are top notch. ??'?

This is categorized as a pub. Let me tell you, this is not just a pub. The restaurant is unbelievable. The menu is very versatile and very upmarket and the prices are very fair. I highly recommend this place for dinner. We had the vegetarian option of the rice paper rolls and the chicken stuffed with Camembert cheese. This dinning experience was so special. Beautiful ambience and FANTASTIC service by the lovely lady who served us and even recommended a few places for breakfast the following day. She was terrific. Thank you Bendigo for making our long weekend memorable and thank you Brougham Arms Hotel restaurant for giving us an experience, not just feeding us. We will highly recommend it to all our friends who will be in Bendigo

Great pub in Bendigo!
Massive menu and beautiful food. The cob loaf and crocquettes were great standouts, as was the pasta of the day and the duck.
We enjoyed it so much that we ate here twice in a three day trip!
Highly recommend

This must be the best value accommodation in Bendigo. The rooms are very comfortable - good beds, newish aircon units, white, bright bathrooms. The 2 bed unit is a great size and has everything you need. Price wise it's amongst the cheapest in Bendigo. What's not to like?

A group of us went to the Brougham Arms Hotel at 150 Williamson St, Bendigo. The service team were very friendly and efficient while taking all of our orders. I ordered Lemon Pepper Calamari served with Asian Slaw and Sriracha Mayo. This meal was advertised as a starter, which the team were happy enough to make it into a main meal for me. It's been awhile since I have been to the Broughie and it didn't disappoint. Well done!

Had lunch here today. The staff were amazing...so friendly and helpful. My braised pork was sensational...the best pork I've eaten in my life. A huge meal and so much value for money. Couldn't eat it all. Great gluten free options too. Can't wait to come back again. Many thanks.

We had a one night stay in Bendigo for the Elvis exhibition - we were very happy and comfortable staying and eating here. The hotel is situated in walking distance to the train station and centre of Bendigo. The staff are very friendly and efficient and the food is exceptional (we wanted to try everything on the menu!). We would definitely stay and eat here again.

We went to this gastropub with very few expectations. However the meals we had were exceptional! I had the gnocchi which was great, and my wife had lamb shoulder. The lamb shoulder was the almost the very best she had ever had and that is saying something.

Very poor wait staff - they were too busy chatting. Food not cooked properly - raw pumpkin salad also missing key ingredients. Waited for ages for the food - wait staff did not want to follow up.

Both the food and the staff were outstanding, special mention to Joel who looked after our table. He is as attentive, patient, and made us feel welcome and well looked after. Never bothered in the slightest when we would grab his attention while passing with a question or additional orders. The decor in the restaurant is classy, and certainly exceeded my expectations. Overall a fantastic experience, an excellent evening catching up with friends and will definitely return.

Food was fantastic, enjoyed it thoroughly! Would have given it a 4.5 star but unable to do with this app. Slight problem with service due to not many people seem to want to work in the food industry service anymore but understand. (kind of?)
If you want exceptional food then please give this place a go. Highly recommended!

Another great dining experience at Brougham Arms Hotel. Food was exceptional and service was even better. The entire wait staff is staffed by the finest young Aussies I have had the pleasure to be around. Friendly, hard-working, and polite. It was great to see them work as a team and help serve all tables and offer special assistance to a large group of senior citizens. Kudos to their hiring manager who chose these young adults - well done! The restaurant was very clean and well spaced. The Fried Chicken Bao Buns were so yummy as was the Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder. I was also impressed with the range of non alcoholic beer! Please don't change a thing to your menu or operations. We will be back again and again...
