We had a meal (six of us) at Quail's at Lakeview Motor Inn because friends were staying at the motel. We ordered different dishes from the menu and everyone was disappointed. My husband ordered the $40 steak with $6 garlic prawn sauce and it turned out to be a thin tough piece of meat which was not cooked uniformly. It... More

Staying at the nearby Quest Bendigo Central, we chose this place for a Friday night dinner due to its proximity. This is a popular local pub with the main bar pumping till all hours. There are two eating areas that adjoin with a beer garden out the back. The beer garden was certainly the quiet location and the large overhead... More

The best steaks that we three have ever eaten at a pub. What more could you say - a very pleasant evening, a bit loud and crowded but that was more than compensated by the great feed at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended for an evening meal. Very friendly staff.

14 of us had Sunday lunch. The Bistro has recently been refurbished and offered a range of choices to suit everyone from all day breakfast with various add-ons to interesting specials. The flathead with a citrus crust was particularly good. Well worth a visit.
