Golden City Hotel

427 Sturt Street, Ballarat, Vic
03 5331 6211

We visited the Golden City Hotel for lunch. It sits right on Sturt Street in the centre of Ballarat and is a traditional looking pub from the outside. On the inside you quickly realise that  it is certainly focused on serving food.. We got one of the last 2 seat tables, but despite the number of diners we were served in a reasonable time. The menu was a mix of traditional Aussie pub food, with a few Italian dishes.

I went for the Italian pizza, with hot salami, olives, mushrooms and anchovies. It was a medium size, and just about right for lunch. It was a super thin base, but the dough was good and well cooked. The hot salami certainly lived up to it's billing, and the flavours worked out well.

The prawn linguini had a creamy white wine sauce which was a little bland, with not too much evidence of the promised chilli and garlic.

The meals were around $20 each... As we don't visit Ballarat often, I doubt we'll be back soon, but we might try the Golden City Hotel again.
