Always nice to be back - invited some neighbors who very much enjoyed the food and experience - Seniors grilled fish a little on the small side compared with the grilled fish. Will be back!

As always nice to be back. Our seniors meals a deight - most enjoyable and great value for money. North Ballarat Sports is our favourite eating place in Ballarat. Noticing a few new staff who looked after is very well. Will be back again next week.

Have been going to North for a long time, order off the seniors menu, very disappointed in the size of meal ( has always been good up until about 1/12 ago ) 1 person had main menu - vegetables very poor - paid extra $2 and was 1 piece broccoli., spoonful of peas and a few slithers of carrot and a handful of chips. The seniors meal appears to be more like a children's serve. We have always said what great seniors meal on previous occasions, now very disappointing.

We always enjoy our visit to North Ballarat Sports Club for a meal. The meal size for Seniors is just right for lunch and the selection is adequate. Covid rules still apply at this stage as can be expected. Very pleased overall.

Good place as always thou service wasn't great on the visit. Thou very understandable after bad news that people of Victoria got that afternoon. I was quite sad to see alot of places be froced to closed on what should of been a very weekend for them. Very much can't wait until lockdown ends to return to the pubs of the area.

Disappointed that we made the booking via Open Table App, when we arrived the kitchen was closed so we were unable to have our lunch. North is a favourite “go to” dining place for us and is always excellent food and service. I am reluctant to trust/use the App again because of this poor communication. We will continue to dine at North, but will book direct from now on.

Food overpriced for value
Bar staff wouldn’t give us drink voucher discount unless we found waitress and brought it back! Why would I lie for three dollars!!!

The service was a little slow, my sweet the pavlova smash was not nearly as nice as the first time I had it, it seemed like it was an after thought. The menu says full table service but that didn’t happen all the time & people were getting up & going to the bar & ordering food, so it was confusing. My mum wanted a Gin & tonic but there was no tonic. It wasn’t up to its usual standard.

Food was very tasty but such a small serving. Seemed as though the kitchen thought it was going to run out of food so served infant-sized portions.
