Always a treat to eat at Sir Charles Darling.. unbeatable Chicken Scaloppini!!

Best Resotto, excellent chicken schnitzel wraps, out of the world Thai beef salad, unmatched steaks and eggplant parmi, topped with nicely heated sitting area and lovely lovely service from behind the counter and kitchen. Portions are big enough for hungry people!!

Good luck!!

If you're seeking a proper Australian pub meal in Geelong, the Sir Charles Darling is a strong candidate.

Decor is simple, their friendly staff are motivated and they serve generous portions of great food.

My Aussie hamburger with the lot dish was fabulous and brought back memories of the classic 1970s fish and chip shop meal.

The wine list is short, but we found two gems in there.

Of note, the pub serves meals all afternoon when most restaurants are closed in Geelong.

All in all, recommended big time.

Oh wow, had to delete my old review.
This place seems to get better every time I come here, it's just not often enough.
Every meal was an absolute winner ?
Great friendly staff and quick service.
So glad we visited again.

Great pub grub! We had steaks and bangers and mash, the service was great and meals arrived promptly considering it was a busy Tuesday night

Lovely front of house staff, but steak came out medium-well done instead of medium rare. I sent it back asking for a medium rare. The chef apparently needs to go back to cooking school because they claimed that it was indeed medium rare...

Although the food was good, we were rudely interrupted by the staff/manager multiple times after a mistake was made with the booking.

Their mistake should not be ours to deal with. We were already seated with our meals.

Ruined the whole evening.

Food was delicious and well priced. Many things on the menu sounded good and what I observed going to other table looked good too. I had a Pepper Steak Wrap that was absolutely delicious. Service was slow and tables not cleared before parties left. But other than that I would try again.

Best chips I've ever eaten! Lamb shanks were also delicious, as was the chicken parmigiana. Staff were lovely. Thanks for a great meal out

We arrived for dinner without a booking staff made us welcomed and seated us on a table even though bookings are essential . The food was excellent porterhouse steak was cooked to our perfection the mushroom sauce was one of the best I've had for years. Pasta was great too. If in Geelong you should definitely eat here I highly recommend it ..

I am in the area for work and this has quickly become one of my favourite places to eat. The staff are friendly and helpful, the meals are tasty and it's within walking distance to accomodation and the foreshore.

Came for steak night on Monday night. $27 gets you a really nice cut of steak with the fat trimmed off. Salad and chips could be a bit more generous and the place could do with a touch up. Otherwise excellent meat.

The Sir Charles Darling Hotel has sensational food. It would have to be the best hotel food in Geelong. Actually just great food regardless of it being a pub. Friendly staff. In Geelong it would be difficult to find a better place to eat. Love it!!!!

The stuffed chicken was juicy and the sweet potato mash was buttery and sweet. The stuffing inside the chicken was lemony with a hint of savoury from the sundried tomatoes. The garlic sauce was 'off chops'. The best I've had.

As far as pub meals go ... this was in the upper end of great.

Reasonably priced and very tasty meals. We also only booked 30 mins prior and they managed to accommodate our table of 8 people.

Menu also has some vegan friendly meal options ... (hard to come by when we were searching where to eat).

My partner and I come down for a meal tonight and I had the porterhouse and she got the parmi... best pub meals we have had in a long time.

The steak was cooked perfectly and wasn't fatty at all
The chicken was juicy on the inside and the crumb was nice and crispy

Highly recommend we will definitely be back

Thanks guys

Driven and walked past a few times, but a family birthday lunch was my first time inside and I was not disappointed. Great layout, staff very accomodating, and the food from the lunch menu was delicious and very reasonably priced. Will definitely be back for more.

The Sir Charles Darling is a great place for excellent food, which is inclusive of everybody's budget. It's family friendly and the staff are very experienced with service, being prompt, very efficient and great at looking after the children at the table. I recommend you go visit this hotel you will be surprised.

Had a lovely lunch catching up with extended family.
Lovely service and meals were brought out quickly. All meals were enjoyed! My only negative was the salad greens without any sort of dressing to help freshen them up a bit

Very friendly and helpful staff. Great food and if you have the delicious risotto, I suggest you bring a friend to help you get through it all. ?

Great food and generous size. Place is clean. I also like how the lady with dark hair checked We are fully vaccinated.
We had a really great time and was enjoying the food until one of the waitresses (the taller and bigger one with light hair colour) suddenly appeared, picked the tissue my baby dropped on the floor and placed it on my husband's plate and wanted to take the plate away! She did this very quickly to clear our table. Hubby told her that he was still eating the chips then she just took the tissue off and walked away expecting us to eat the chips with that tissue she placed from the floor? Really? That was shocking and annoying ???'. She was very rude. We were slowly eating and chatting away and still had a lot of food on other plates and was shocked with what she did.
Before she entered the kitchen she looked back and saw our shocked face and did not even apologise. It's a shame how she can turn the place down with her personality.
Apart from that all other staff were nice and food was great! We didn't have to wait long for the food to arrive. Kids meal were also sumptuous. ??'?
I hope the owner can read my review and give my feedback to the staff as it is important for customers to have good experience.
