Hotel Nicholas, Beechworth

1A Camp Street, Beechworth
Vic 3747

Part four of the road trip series, back into Victoria.

The Hotel Nicholas was apparently established in 1857, it has certainly maintained an atmospheric feel. We were in Beechworth on a public holiday, and there weren't many options available, a lot of places were booked out.

We didn't get a table immediately, but we got a seat in the lounge area while we waited for about 10 minutes.

When we were seated I went for the Barramundi with honey and almond glaze. I wasn't entirely sure I was going to enjoy the glaze, but it actually worked well, and didn't over power the fish, which was beautifully cooked.

The steak with peppercorn sauce was ordered medium, but came out still a bit bloody, it actually was a bit better after resting on the plate for a couple of minute, I guess the kitchen was a bit hectic. It was a good bit of meat however.

The service was good, and we'd be happy to try the Nicholas if we were passing through again.
