Five of us went to the Belmont for lunch today. Menu was very expensive so we expected outstanding food. No! Parma at $27 - too dear. The parma was a nice size but mine was dry - either overcooked or been sitting waiting too long. The topping was tasty but fell off - didn't connect to the parma. Vegies were broccoli and julienne carrots and were warm at best, steamed and tasteless. I expected more than two veggies and for them to have some flavour. At the least be served hot. Expected better. Parma was served on top of the chips which always ensures the chips are soggy. Why do restaurants do this? Makes no sense. Plenty of chips but again just warm.
One fellow diner had the fillet steak at $35. Nice size, well cooked and pepper sauce excellent.
The other had flake fillets. Well cooked, served hot and large salad. Said it was ok but not outstanding.
If you charge top pub prices you have to deliver top pub food. Today that did not happen.

Have been twice in last 2 weeks to Belmont Hotel. The food has been excellent. Service a little slow, but that is ok. Can recommend the Steak and the Flake. Ask for table away from the door on these cold nights. The air rushes in when someone enters and it is COLD. Maybe a put up a petition to block the cold air spoiling dinner.
Will definitely go back for the food.

Nice job with the Reno we sat in the dining room then moved to the bar.
A pretty busy Wednesday lunch a few groups around.
Calamari delicious
Slow cooked beef brisket Sangya yum and the pumpkin salad with walnuts was delicious.
All in All a great venue if anything I would say that the customer service needs a little bit more direction.
Well worth visiting

Booked in for Mother’s Day lunch with the family. Food and service was awesome, considering how busy the venue was the service and wait times were very impressive. The fact they had live acoustic music in the bistro was a nice touch also.

Will be back this time again next year
