Four of us had lunch here yesterday on the strength of the reviews on TA. We weren't disappointed. Service was excellent including working round one of the food allergies one of us has. The wine list is excellent. The menu has many of the pub...favourites on it and there is a specials board as well. We ordered beer battered fish and chips and a hamburger and beer battered chips. We all enjoyed our meal and plan to return soon. Recommended.More

We had been here before and had a pretty good feed. But this night we got there got our drinks and sat down at our table. After being seated for about 30 minutes I asked one of the waitress could we please order dinner. She...was just wiping down tables. She actually swore under her breath and we seen her do this. We could see she wasn’t happy with serving us. She was a bit older than the other girls working and I thought she would know that we were there for a meal as we had booked. She never came near our table again. It just spoilt the whole night for me and the others that were with us. I won’t be rushing back. Very disappointed in the waiting staff.More

New owners are so welcoming! Great friendly service. Always clean, ice cold drinks and the food is amazing! The sticky date on the dessert menu is a must!

Hearns Hotel in Meredith has an extensive gluten free menu and also caters for other food preferences and intolerances. I am a coeliac and must adhere to a Gluten Free diet. I'd fully recommend this hotel half way between Ballarat and Geelong for great food,...good service and staff that understand patrons dietary needs. Well done Hearns Hotel. 😊😊😊More

You would travel to Hearn's just for the food. For a small country pub the menu is extensive and absolutely delicious, filled with modified old favourites like Crumbed Cutlets, Steak and any variance on chicken imaginable, you will need a wine or two just to...peruse the menu! Make sure you get a garlic and cheese bread to tide you over whilst you decide. They make it in Gluten Free as well, in fact you can get most of the menu in Gluten Free. They have a selection of beers and ciders on tap and wonderful selection of red and white wine. This fully renovated establishment is beautifully furnished whilst keeping the old world charm at hand. The building has a colourful history and Caz can tell you all about it. There are Ghost tours for something a little bit on the quirky side, live music and theme nights. This family run country pub has everything you could ask for and more. Go see Caz, Todd, Bree & Wade and get your fix of good food, fantastic company, hilarious locals and live music.

Passing thru Meredith? Do yourself a favour, turn off highway for a reasonably priced, well cooked, delicious lunch/dinner at Hearn's Hotel. Staff is welcoming, meals are melt in your mouth, plentiful & reasonably priced. We've enjoyed calamari, chicken/mushrom risotto, schnitzel, hamburger. Salads are fresh with...tasty dressing. Don't be deceived by the age of this heritage building, inside has modern decor, cosy winter fires. Just great for a Sunday drive!More
