    The British Hotel: closed Pub around 2006

    by Kate-Me Updated May 2, 2015

    The British Hotel has been empty since about 2006 and is now boarded up, faded paint and a bit derelict. A pity as location was good. I used to love the Beefeater painted on the top window (that's gone now too but you can see a pic below of how it USED to look)

    Le Peche Gourmand: French Bakery!

    by Kate-Me Updated May 2, 2015

    Yes, since about 2012 my little town has even had it's own French Bakery. This is very unusual for a small town. Marie is from France and Paul, the baker, is Australian. So you can even practice your French here (if you're fast, as it's usually very busy!)
    There is a seating area inside at the front of the café, a sitting area in the rear with couches and lounge style chairs, and outdoor seating out in front of the shop on French style tables and chairs under the tree....
    Still sometimes the place doesn't seem large enough for the large influx of people who sometimes arrive at lunch time. I waited in a queue for 20 minutes recently just to buy a takeaway baguette, but they are so delicious, no way was I giving up! I won't go in there for takeaway between 12noon and 1 pm again...the queue was almost to the door and service can be a little slow generally.

    It's a bit pricier than normal bakeries, but completely worth it.

    Favorite Dish: I love the little Tarte au Citron with peaked meringue on top that's soft and gooey and melts in your mouth. I often get the takeaway baguettes too as they are excellent. The coffee is very nice too.
    There are so many different pastries to choose from, including my favorites pain au chocolat, pain au raisin (and baguette sandwiches as well) but I always return for my favorites most.
    I find it just as tasty as Bakeries I've visited in France (albeit much more expensive than bakeries in France but that's life).

    Be aware that it isn't open Sundays (also closed Mondays) Some people have come up from Melbourne on Sundays to try the delights but been very disappointed.

    The Farmers Arms Hotel: drinkers pub

    by Kate-Me Updated Apr 28, 2015

    The décor is a bit dated. Meals are offered, but it's not as popular as the American. They do have live entertainment and shows from time to time however. A bit more of a locals drinking pub than specific eatery.

    The American Hotel: Pub 1

    by Kate-Me Updated Apr 28, 2015

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For meals, the American Hotel is the most popular of Creswick's 2 pubs for meals. By 2006 it really started to get a bit of a name for itself (after hiring a former chef of the well known establishment the Grand Hotel in Mildura)

    Has an added 2nd storey function room on the back.
    There's also a nice outside courtyard and beer garden with views of the historic streetscape.
    The menu is quite varied. Even though it is a small town, don't expect it to be cheap. Main dinner meals these days start at about $25 - $35 or so. Servings are average size, not huge any more.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite meals here are the chicken schnitzels and also the seafood, for example the chilli prawns with rice. A couple of my B & B guests also reported that the Calamari is also really delicious.

    Smokeytown Cafe: Light meals, coffee and refreshments

    by Kate-Me Updated Apr 28, 2015

    Opened around 2003, and with a liquor licence, Smokeytown Cafe is open almost every day (except Mondays and Tuesdays) for breakfast, light lunches, coffees, and sometimes Fri/Sat dinners.
    The cafe is well placed right in the middle of the main street. It is decorated in mostly modern style and also displays and sells some art and gifts within the building, part of which is devoted to tables and chairs, and small couches area to one side.
    You have a good view of the main street and the historic Town Hall from the window.

    Favorite Dish: Mostly light menu - wraps, toasted sandwiches, hamburger, pasta (2015). Soup too, selection of very nice looking cakes.
