After visiting the butterflies at Harcourt, decided to have lunch at Castlemaine. Only stock standard fish and chips - one with salad and one with vegetables. Salad was a mix of 7 or more and very fresh. Of the vegetables, carrot fresh & done in a light oil (?), two small portions of corn but fresh, fries fine, but the... More

I ordered the Fillet St Regis, a eye fillet with prawns, well when it was delivered I was amazed, hidden beneath 7 beautiful garlic prawns and a king prawn was a lovely eye filler cooked to perfection.

We decided to visit Castlemaine for lunch today and decided on eating at the Cumberland. Staff were lovely and very welcoming. Lovely venue. I order the Chicken Parma and my hubby the steak. Meal sizes were large and generous but the Chicken Parma was average at best. After ordering it was promptly served within 10 minutes and I think the... More

Stopped over on our VIC road trip. Walked around town in the arvo to check the options. Decided that a 'pub meal' would do. WOW! Hubby chose Steak & Kidney pie (& raved about it), I had Seafood Crepe: 2 huge oysters naturale, 2 mussels, fresh king prawn, 4 prawns with tail in the crepe plus calamari, fish & countless... More

Passing through Castlemaine we decide to stop for lunch. As seniors we were attracted to the sign out the front that offered 2-course seniors meals for $14. It appears they are only offered at that price on Wednesdays with the normal price being $18.50. Although the servings were smaller than the enormous servings we saw being delivered to some diners...
