Road trips are fun. I try to fit a road trip in every month if I can. I recently headed to Wallan to stay with friends. We went to Hogans Hotel for tea. The meals were lovely, with a big plate of food.
The hotel is huge. The main restaurant area has recently been upgraded, and is a large, spacious area to dine in. Even though the dining area has been enlarged, there weren't many spare tables when we arrived to have dinner on a Saturday night.
Wallan is outside of Melbourne, off the Hume Highway. It is a small, picturesque town with lots of bushland. We walked to the Hogans Hotel from my friend's home. It was only a ten minute walk.
You can dine in the restaurant or the bar. Did I mention that this hotel is huge? It takes up a big corner block. We walked in at the back entrance of the hotel. There are dining areas, bar spaces, outdoor areas, a smokers room and more. I went back the next day to take more photos of the hotel. I was so impressed with the size of the hotel and with the space, inside and out.
Hogans Cafe and Bar Restaurant offers a family atmosphere and friendly service. There is something for everyone. Enjoy a drink in one of the four bars. There is a fully enclosed children's playground which is accessible through the dining area.
