Dessert was a bit disappointing - the pavlova special. Macadamia and choc soil just does not work with pav and cream; stick to berries and coulis instead. Plus the serving size was 3 times what it should have been, so much was wasted.
As per the War on Waste, please stop serving straws with drinks unless requested.

We keep returning to the Brougham Arms time and time again, each time we try different dishes and each time we were not disappointed. My favourite is the Chicken Parmigiana, although the Beef Cheek is excellent, my husband thinks the Fish and Chips is the best ever. Deserts are to die for, all are great. Service is excellent and the young waiter took it in his stride when he was asked for a 'fat cow'!!!
Thank You

Beautiful food and service, in a very relaxed atmosphere which is very family friendly.
Great kids meals and a large selection for adults.
Have been a few times now and will continue to go back, it’s a favourite of ours.
The care and service provided to my family recently on my daughters birthday was outstanding, thank you.

Great night with the family. We enjoy taking a seat and having our meals and drinks brought to us. The staff are very friendly and were always there to top up drinks, etc. Food is very nice and the menu is comprehensive. Also liked being able to book online - which took 2 minutes.

We were sat in front of the bar next to the walk way and it was very noisy. I ordered a steak and asked for medium rare and it came out well done. I did tell the waitress, but she just said I'll tell the chef and never came back. I was disappointed as my husband and I very rarely get a night out together.

Food is great and the renovations are lovely but if you want to enjoy your meal and talk to your friends you have to yell over the noise. It’s packed and loud!

The main course was delicious, very well presented and good sizes of portions.
We indulged and really enjoyed in combination of several desserts on one plate which we shared between two people. The pannacotta for me was outstanding - creamy, smooth and appealing in appearance. However the raspberries were rather soft. Was it a compote?
We will certainly return if visiting Bendigo again. I live in Portland and a friend who moved to here last year from Bendigo recommended the Brougham Arms to us.
Many thanks also for the attentive and very pleasant service on what was a busy Friday night. We were NOT pressured by your staff to finish and therefore we were able to take our time to enjoy an overall excellent dining experience.

The service here is amazing, I brought my bestie here from Melbourne and she LOVED it, she couldn't get over how amazing the food and the service was.
I did take her specially to try the EPIC Blue cheese salad...but it was taken off the menu which made me very sad because it was AMAZING!!
