This hotel has obviously been recently renovated and I suspect no expense was spared. It is impressive and even better still the quality of the bistro food was excellent. If we return to Mudgee any time soon we would defintely eat at the Oriental Hotel again.

The Ori Kitchen is located in the Orient Hotel. Not a bad looking hotel. It's been refurbished sure. It's owned by the local Mayor sure. But is there any concern for patrons...no. The food was ok. Not great by any means. But the most disappointing aspect was the service and pricing. To charge a process for a meal is fine.... More

Came on a very hot and busy night, sat outside so kids could play in the playground. Beers cold and wine chilled, food was 10 times better than our last visit. Delicious and very filling for a pub meal

It was a record breaking hot summer day, and the air conditioning was divine here! Food was reasonably priced, and very yum. Basic pub food, plus dishes that are a bit more fancy. Staff were great and very accommodating for a last minute booking for a large group too. Definitely recommend!

The new upstairs eating area on the deck is great. Meals never disappoint, great wine selection and beers on tap. Good, friendly service.

Had lunch here for the 1st time in years. The beer garden was great, with a fenced play area for our toddler. The renovations have been a great improvement overall. However my husband chose the crumbed cutlets, one of which was off. The kitchen staff were not at all interested that they had served off meat which was disappointing. I... More

Hit and miss at this pub. Had great feeds many a time. This last meal not one of us finished due to being either under cooked or overcooked. Need to take a bit more care with cooking not just getting it out on time.

We enjoyed a short visit to Mudgee and visited to Ori as recommended by our hotel. Wednesday night and it was busy. Great range of bistro meals- after troubling with choice, I had pork belly with awesome crackling and my dearest had roast beef. Both were generous country serves, which arrived quickly and hot. We'd definitely go again.

Went to Ori for dinner, some of our groups food was good like the chicken schnitzel. But others, like the barramundi, that was made from frozen fish. I realise you're nowhere near where it's caught but tell us it's frozen so we can choose if we want it. The decor is really good & decent local wine list. All in... More
