Public Inn

This was no ordinary meal, it was superb, plus the most professional staff in Central Vic and a place to explore a global and local wine & beer list in a cool, swank environment. The Public INN is what modern day dining is all about. Impressive on every level, it should not be missed.”

Awards are presented late to the highest scoring venues in each region (Regional Awards) and the three combined regions (State Awards).
