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...

Besides being a drinking place the 'Cumby' is often a venue for live music as well as sports broadcasts and all-day food service. I was there three days/nights in a row during a music festival, and I was impressed by how well the staff maintained a reasonable standard of service. When a woman had a fall, cutting herself on broken... More

We booked a function room via mostly emails and the offer was a good price for food platers,coffee & tea and no extra cost for the room. The finger food was great and plenty and worked out very well for those that traveled on the day.Left... More

Driving through Castlemain I picked this pub from its outside appearance. It looked like a real pub. On entering I was dissapointed by the cheap 'sports club' interior. However after receiving and tasting our meals my opinion was changed. Great parmi, great roast. Would definitely recommend for real pub food

Thank DS-Team
