It has got a real village feel to it and a quirky character.
The big mall complexes down the line are sucking the life out of the main street.
In a nutshell
It's a jolly nice place.
a very cheery little place, even though it was lunchtime we had a lovely breakfast here before we rode on the train, the walls are painted and there are railway themed things all around
look out for the train clock ! on the hour a train runs around the outer rim of the dial, puffing merrily
Favorite Dish: we has a large breakfast, it was really tasty

Address: across from Belgrave Station, on the main road
The daughter I met here on Friday night for a quiet drink, an eat, and a chin wag.
It's pleasant enough - they have a TAB room and a bistro and a beer garden out the back for smokers - and some of the time they have tables out the front for smokers. They seem to pack them up quite early. Maybe there is a council rule.
I liked most the big pull back windows at the front so you can sit and survey the passing parade.
Belgrave gets quite lively on a Friday night.
It's a solid sort of pub - the clientele seemed quite scruffy - but well behaved. I'm cool with that.
We shared a bowl of nachos - which was very expensive - $16 - which was just corn chips, salsa, avocado and sour cream. No meat or beans. And it wasn't very good at all.
I am prepared to give their meals another go - but they only get one more chance.
The music wasn't too loud. I don't think they had a jukebox. I didn't notice pokies, maybe they were in the TAB room.
The bar staff were extremely pleasant and affable.
Happy hour from 5-7 on Thursday and Friday night.
I will go there again. It is one of my locals.
Dress Code: There is a sign that they have a dress code but when I was there on Friday night I don't think it was very strictly policed.

Address: In the main drag. You can't miss it.
The train would be the best way to get to the Puffing Billy station. Get the train from Flinders Street station and get the Belgrave line. About 5 mins away (you'll see lots of signs) is the puffing billy station. Convenient and economical if going on a sunday with a sunday saver ($2.50 last time I checked).

We were starving after all our walking around and the cafe at the lake did not have much...I guess most people brought food along...and that's something we should have done as well...Being a weekend I had expected more quantity if not variety.

Take a walk along the hiking trail and at the very end you come to a moss covered well...we all could use a few wishes coming true....
