Magnificent! Outstanding atmosphere, service, food and wine, in a beautiful setting. I can't wait to visit again!

Very very limited menu.

The food was tasty but was cold. Also the degustation menu was not on offer that night, which we had hoped to eat. The manager was great and did give us a discount and a couple of glasses of French champagne. To be fair they were short staffed but overall just a little disappointed.

Limited menu Meals were underwhelming for the price

For these prices, service needs to be slicker. Barman was an absolute delight however and utterly professional. Beautiful surrounds and hotel, small changes could improve things ie not removing one plate before other diner has finished, being delivered bill before dessert had been served.

Service was terrible.

Service was slow despite restaurant was not even half full. Service was not consistent with one waiter super friendly, willing to help and the other staff (appeared to be the senior staff) was very cold and unapproachable. Was a bit of let down as food & wine were great, ambience very nice too. Could be just that particular night worth a visit if you're in Daylesford / Hepburn.

Unfortunately the Argus has become a functional hotel dining room with the food expensive for what it is, wine list also moving down to a more run of the mill offering with some good local options but again a little over priced. Service by Stan was excellent and made an otherwise ordinary experience much better. To be fair to them when I discussed my experience with then the next day they were quick to provide a discount which levelled the cost back to what it should have been. Note it is not the Argus of old!

About The Argus Dining Room

Our restaurant The Argus is currently going through a restyling process and we are moving away from our fine dining roots. For our new beginnings, we will be embracing a contemporary country dining experience with a focus on local wine and produce. The new menus will be introduced at the end of July; however, in the meantime, our doors are open our fireplaces are lit and we hope to see you here to sample our changing menus.
