Hullo from Tallarook Hotel.

A country pub and beer garden one hour north of Melbourne (or a two-minute stroll from Tallarook station).

Come for a meal, enjoy a drink and stay in town for some country goodness.

Tallarook Hotel Map

A bistro and bar in Regional Victoria hosting pub classics, local beer, a pool room and the choice of indoor or outside dining.

A 100m walk to the train station makes us an ideal bookend to the Great Victorian Rail Trail, too.

Just exploring this part of the world? Kick things off at our pub then make your way around via Within106.

Wednesday Dinner

The Fine Print

Great care is taken in the kitchen, but we cannot guarantee dishes are free of residual nuts, nut oils, fish, egg, sesame and/or gluten. Please advise allergies or dietary requirements when ordering.

A surcharge of 15% applies on public holidays.

Inaugurated in 1871, Tallarook Hotel has burned down twice and each rebuild brings something new — like an upstairs balcony in 1929 or the butchers next door we’ve just renovated.

In 2019 Tripadvisor user Vegieburger said our place was “absolute crap” but we like to think we’ve improved.

This is all to say, our pub is in transition. We’re always working on something new and you’re likely to see it when you’re here next.
