Fine Dining Cruise in Benalla

Fine Dining Cruise in Benalla

If you're looking for a top-quality experience at a gastro pub the North Eastern (known as the Northo) is very, very hard to beat. Often mentioned in good food guides, it has been producing amazing modern cuisine that is well above what you expect from a pub.

An easy drive from Shepparton is rewarded with a warm, cozy athmosphere. Leather lounges and open fire places build the ambience. Tables are set with white tablecloths and silver. It presents as restaurant quality rather than a pub setting. The menu boasts some really interesting meals. Spring lamb rump — albeit seasonal — is a favourite of mine. Other examples include Thai beef salad and pan seared barramundi.

Prices reflect the quality of the food but I would go as far as to say the quality is better than most anything you can find in Shepparton, including Shepp's "restaurants". Most of the produce used at the pub is sourced from local suppliers and the freshness and quality of North East produce sings on the plate.

There's a great range of beers on tap and the wine list also reflects Benalla's positioning as a gateway to the North East winery district. Put this gastro pub on your "don't miss" list. Bookings are a good idea but if you just turn up there's always a chance for a seat.
