Recent price rise on menu takes away from the value across all of the meals. Area near one of the fireplaces smelt like wee today. Otherwise, we really enjoyed the experience here. Enthusiastic and warm welcome on arrival, inviting, and comfortable surroundings in the lounge. Delicious Flat White Coffee. The burger and chips was perfect, juicy, and tasty with great ingredients and plenty of nice chips.
It's definitely a must try venue that we look forward to continuing to experience again in the near future.

Everything just tasted like charcoal. If that's what you like then this is the place for you. Also my mushroom gravy was just mushrooms with a small amount of gravy.

Awsome atmosphere and a very nice venue.

Our steaks were nice but the veggies taste charcoal.
I also got the octopus ? which was fantastic loved it

Love this place! Great food. Good sizes and good prices. Friendly waiting staff who are attentive and extremely helpful. Lovely atmosphere and lots of different areas so feels warm and inviting, and not too noisy even with a band playing up both ends! Great outdoor area too, pool table, etc. It has everything. Highly recommend!

Staff were very accommodating and attentive to our needs. Although the pub was flat out and the service was slow the Food portions and quality was very good.
The bistro was so loud that we asked to be moved to the bar and the staff supported us.
It seems the chef has an infatuation with spice / hot food which l love but it needs to be applied to the right meats. Spicy Pork ribs were good but the spice just didn't do it for me.

We were extremely happy that this was the place we chose to have dinner. We really wanted to find a nice place to eat dinner on a couch in front of an open fire. We couldn't find one online that advertised this, but to our delight, that's what we got when walking in. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. The food was absolutely fantastic and reasonably priced! It's such a beautiful place inside. Thank you

Stopped in for a beer and a quick bite and ended up eating some really delicious food. We ordered the Black Muscles and Szechuan Tofu and were pleasantly surprised at how amazing the food was.
If you judge a book by its cover, you're unlikely to stop here for a meal... Your loss! Whoever the chef is/was that night, they really know their stuff!

That being said, the staff were all really friendly, the food came out really quick, the music was good & at a nice middle volume, and the outdoor seating was accommodating of us & our puppies.

My only "complaint" would be the lack of decent beers.
Can't wait to go back again!

Update:
I would have tried over half the Home Hotel menu by now (and several from the previous menu), and the worst dish out of all of them was still really good (probably a 7/10)
The food here is always amazing and keeps us coming back week after week. I'll be back again soon to try yet another of the chefs' delicious creations.

Update 2:
Still keep going back & enjoying the food here and now they have a better selection of beers. Unfortunately the craft beer menu (in my opinion) isn't an overly well curated selection of beers, but it's a good start. They're also heavily marked up, so it's likely they won't move many, leading to it being shut down as a bad idea. (As an example, they have very few IPAs to choose from & the $10 Moondog Dip-Hip-Opotomus is a $25 purchase)

All round the Launching Place Home Hotel was a very good experience. It has a very nice outdoor area that was heated in the cold evening, and several bar area rooms including live music. We were there for dinner, which was prompt and very good. Kids fish and chips could have done with some salad, but calamari rings and the expertly-cooked porterhouse went down a treat. Look forward to our next visit

Good old country pub renovated and turned into a really good place to eat and have a cold one.
The food here is simply superb, the menu is extensive and staff are super friendly country folk who love to have a chat and a good laugh.
A must visit if it's on your way around Warburton or just make a trip to here.

I've driven by this hotel for a lifetime but never visited. Somehow it seemed like a manky kinda weird place or even haunted. But not these days.
A local friend and me from the west, met up at #launchingplacehomehotel for several hours of catch up chit chat.
I waited in the beer garden area until my friend arrived, then we headed indoors where it wasn't so hot. Slumming it on a beautiful couch, billiard table nearby and the bar a few metres away, we settled in for an afternoon of catching up on the last 12 months.
Starting with a G & T plus a LL&B our life debrief began.
Then the munchies got us and my friend ordered salt and pepper calamari with aioli and lemon. Not being a fan of seafood, I was hesitant but gave it a try and very impressed with the texture and taste. Later, a bowl of chips with aioli again was the perfect snack to keep the big appetite we both had. The menu can cater for dietary requirements if you let the staff know.
Notes: service was great and our dishes and empty glasses taken away quickly. Plenty of parking. Listen out for the motorbikes that come and go for a stopover. A band was playing in the beer garden with brief sets. Wheelchair accessible. Kid friendly. Food available for children.
My only down side would be that the couch area had a "dank" smell which considering the age of the premises is not unusual but not great either.
Recommend a visit for a refreshment, snack or meal when you are visiting the area.
Thank you to all the staff for the lovely service and memorable experience.

We had a great lunch at the hotel as a family of four. The staff were excellent - some were clearly new, but doing a fabulous job. The menu has a great balance of pub classics and some more interesting dishes which are well executed. The focus on Yarra Valley wines and beers is admirable. The renovation is awesome. We will be back - next time with our dog, to relax in the beer garden.

City prices for mediocre food and drinks. Partners porterhouse steak was ordered "well done", came out pink. When bringing the staff to attention about this, they didn't offer to replace it. 4 whole cloves of garlic in the mushroom risotto, parma overcooked and dry. Kids fish n chips, dry and not fresh. As locals, we won't be returning.

Not child friendly at all. It is almost like they intentionally do want children there. Kids Menu is expensive and no dessert or drinks options. Was told kids can just order the $12 ice cream...Meals are small and a few dollars below $40 for their non pub meals. I nearly fell over when I paid 5.50 for 1 can of coke minus the can, just a glass. Food was good, tasted great but won't be back as a local place to eat because I can't afford to take my family !

Sadly, I have to say a bit hit and miss. Had a fantastic meal first time with new owners. Excellent service. Really nice people. Second visit iffy. Entertainment great. Food not so much.
No coffee! Strange.
Definitely going back, but needs more consistency.
Love you guys. See you again soon.

The staff were amazingly helpful. So willing to go above and beyond for us even though we were a little late for lunch. The chef did an amazing job. The food was great and reasonably priced. Will definitely be back.
