A group of us (12) came for lunch today. I had the Gnocchi and I loved it. The food came out reasonably quickly. Great venue and space. We pre booked a table, but it wasn't busy at all.

Loved it! The service was awesome, the atmosphere was wonderful. Had a perfect steak, cooked exactly right. I head a Capt n Coke and the wife had a Long Island Iced Tea and they did not pour light, not was it over powered.

This was the nicest pub meal we have had in a very long time, it was definitely restaurant quality. My husband had the gnocchi which he said was excellent. I had the veal scallopine with saffron risotto it was beautiful. The music that was playing was pleasant and songs that most generations would recognise and appreciate. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and we will definitely visit again.

This is by miles the best meal I've ever had at any establishment, Do not go elsewhere. It will be your loss. Great service, this hotel is a hidden gem. I paid $47 for my steak and it was worth more, seriously I would've paid a hungy it was to die for, compliments to the Michelin star chef. 100% 10 out of 10.

You don't expect a quaint pub in the middle of a country town.
The staff were absolutely amazing
10/10
The decor amazing ??'? really was fantastic.
And I love a place that offers sparkling water from the beginning.
The food on the otherhand was dissapointing. We ordered the garlic prawn clay pot. (Prawns tasted like they were from Coles. And when your paying $26 for 7 Prawns you want them not to be fully peeled or and from coles.
The croquettes had little flavour and a heavy tangy Mayo on the bottom .
The spaghetti marinara once again it tasted ad looked like a coles seafood mix and a scollap was not fresh and on the turn. I left half my seafood after that.
My partner ordered the veal scollapini. It was bizzare. Was oozing way too much space which killed the flavour of the veal.

Maybe we ordered all the wrong dishes but we are happy to go back and try again. Maybe just a parma next time though.

Great parma with homemade sauce, friendly staff, high prices though compared to other pubs in the area. Would i return? For the 5-star parma yes, for the 1-star crumble, no. Recommend checking out for yourself though ?

We came along after seeing the Great Western featured on postcards earlier this year. The Great Western was central for all in our group and an easy 45 minute drive down the Western Highway from Deer Park. We dined in the front room of the hotel which our group of 15 had to ourselves. The decor and ambience was fantastic. Meals were great and the service of the wait staff exceptional. Had an amazing four cheese gnocchi with walnuts and a to die for chocolate mousse. We were already thinking about our next function before we'd left! Thanks to the Great Western team for making our experience one to remember.

Went here for dinner after returning to Ballan after 12 years away. An absolutely fantastic night of dinner. Food was brilliant and the service there from the whole team there was absolutely fantastic cannot recommend this place enough

Went for dinner and although not a cheap outing, the food was incredible, drinks were amazing (especially the espresso martini!), staff were friendly, service was fast and it has a great retro vibe. Don't mind paying a bit extra for high quality food and we were very impressed with the pork belly and barramundi special, both delicious! 10/10 will be coming back!

Not knowing the area, the 7 of us, including children, took a punt on booking a table here for dinner.
Service was excellent and meals were to die for.
Relaxed atmosphere and very friendly.
Will definitely return, when next in town.
Thankyou ?

The food was amazing! So many GF/GFO options on the menu, they also have one GF beer available which is fantastic.
The interior makeover has completely transformed the venue and looks stunning.
Will definitely return. Well done to all involved.

My wife and I ate there on Friday night. The service from the staff was impeccable from start to finish.
The disappointment was with the food and drinks.
We ordered a side of the hand cut wedges only to be told about 10 minutes later that they were out of them. It would have been nice to be told that at the time of ordering from the wait person, or maybe the kitchen could have peeled and cut some more. This also happened with the couple next to my wife and I with different wait person and someone telling them the same a few minutes later. I can only assume that the kitchen had not passed the information the the waitpersons.
My wife asked for a second glass of wine only to be told after a few minutes that the bottle was empty and asked if she would like a different wine.

Food was amazing, staff were friendly and I had a food coma. Coffe was nice, even though the espresso was just a dribble in a cup. Although we are Definitely coming here again.

Amazing staff
Brilliantly kitch decor
Next level delicious home style meals (honestly, you'd give half the pubs in Melbourne a run for their money).

Well done GWH!

Good venue with a great atmosphere. As a Ballan resident I would go more if the menu wasn't so pretentious. Really need to revise the menu and cater for local demand.

Not sure why it's a thirsty camel bottle shop because it is nowhere near even being a valid bottle shop. Absolutely ridiculous prices, warm beer and not open within the hour's they say they will be

Gorgeous. Amazing decor, lovely staff and delicious food. So excited to have a destination venue in my local area! Olivia went above and beyond, Oscar made a wonderful cosmopolitan and the prawn cocktail was next level delicious. I can't wait to go back again. The atmosphere is so good and they have done such a good job of the interiors. They really embraced the 70s vibe and went with it, and pairing the food with the decor was such a wonderful idea as well. Really well thought out and I just love the place. Will 100% be back!
