Whilst Bright has so many amazing restaurants
( also a new Steak House opening soon and the clever people from 13 steps opening a cafe! ) The surrounding towns now have so many new and exciting dining options. The Porepunkah pub has just reopened, renovated and under new ownership. It looks amazing ( you need to visit the bathrooms!) and the food is fantastic. The wine list is completely from local growers and the beer menu is a variety of craft beers and old favourites: local where possible, and Victorian predominantly.
The Happy Valley Hotel (The Ovens Pub) is also under new ownership. Great place to stop for lunch on your way to Bright and they also have a steak and parma night which are proving very popular with the locals.
Add these two to the newish Wandi pub ( extremely popular ) and the Alpine and Star hotels in Bright which are both undergoing renovations at the moment and you will be spoilt for choice when looking for a good pub meal.
