The meals were a good size. Steak was a bit ordinary and the paper sauce tasted like a cheap home made sauce. But it was reasonably priced and a good family friendly restaurant.
Food great ! Generous serving and the best hot chips cut thick. Homestyle! Venue dated but clean ??'?
State Of Normality
An older style pub in a town that's developed. It's one of the few places that still feels like it's from the small country town I grew up in. I sincerely hope they never change.
Not happy with the service, they had 2 bar staff for a busy service when they needed at least 3 if not 4 people and lots of tables had plates sitting on the table until service had finished. Meals where avarage, my partner had the enchilada with Mexican rice and all we could taste was pepper. I had the ribs which was over cooked and tough. Definitely won't be back.
Had lunch and a few drinks roast of the day very tender and tasty bar staff recommended a nice wine to accompany the meal at a reasonable price. Staying in Lara for a few weeks will come back prior to leaving
Brilliant service from Alex and the chefs at the Lara Hotel! Dietary requirements of dairy, soy and egg free were catered for without a problem. Excellent meal and staff were beyond helpful!
I wouldnt recommend this substandard, working class establishment. The service is poor and the meals are mediocre at best. There are far better offerings in the region, this place is best left to the uncouth locals.
Family of 2 headed back from fairy land Geelong and were famished after a few hours. We headed back to Lara for a meal and found Lara hotel that had the most amazing menu. We got in and the lady said "the kitchen shut 15 minutes ago". We were about to head out and she called us back and said, "let me speak to the kitchen staff and if there is a way we could help you and the kids" and with their kind hearts, they accomodated our request and had the most amazing experience and the food was brilliant. Thanks guys. Loved it.
Responsible gaming tips
When playing, remember that:
Playing is supposed to be fun, so leave when it stops being fun.
Make sure you don't spend more than you intend - take how much you are happy to lose, and leave your cards at home.
Don't play when tired or when inebriated as this will impair your ability to play responsibly and know when to leave.
Know when it's time to leave - and leave.
