Moonambel Hotel Sept 2010

A group of black garbed ‘bikies’ were almost the only other clients for lunch, bookings essential!,

at this typical small town country pub. A row of shining Harley Davidson’s outside
may have deterred other customers, but I doubt it.

After paying for dinner at the bar we moved into the spacious dining room. Lunch starts with a self serve selection of well cooked veggies in a bain marie.
The broccoli and cauliflower in a béchamel sauce were outstanding and there was nothing to complain about the roast potatoes, roast pumpkin, carrots, beans or the peas and corn. The very well cooked roast beef,
turkey or pork, or any combination you like, wrapped in foil to keep warm, were served by staff.
A selection of mustards and dressings were also available. For dessert we chose Apple crumble
just out of the oven. It seemed to have been placed on top of a sponge cake. Although not too sweet, with plenty of cream, it supplied calories for the week.Of course there are other choices available on blackboard menus.

They have plenty of moderately priced local wines by the glass or bottle. Bottomless tea or coffee, instant, made this a decent Sunday roast for $20 Just what one expects from honest country pub grub

Score 13.5/20
