Fantastic service ...always. Sometimes busy and have to wait for food but always worth the wait these days. A great Chef, reasonable prices and super atmosphere. Well run, friendly place for locals and visitors alike. I highly recommend 'The Bally' at any time of day or evening. Entertainment is also good, bands at the weekend, quiz night, raffles for local...

Wow ! The varied food menus was great . There were families as well as normal patrons eating . It's.

On Wednesday night a gathering has started to play musical bingo with funny games...

Enjoyed a lovely HUGE lunch here with great GF options the servings were huge and great value for pub grub with good specials on. The beer was nice too! Noticed they had a nice little pub garden out back and a jumping castle would be lovely for young families!

We love the Bally Hotel. Great food, cold beers and family friendly. Sunday arvo has a jumping castle and free face painting for the kids and live music in the beer garden.

Hard to be unbiased about my local but here goes. Balgownie is a small but unique former mining town village nestled into the foothill of the escarpment of Wollongong. Wonderful Heritage style hotel which has undergone significant renovation over the years. Inside the large bar area is surrounded by facilities ranging from numerous seating and standing tables to a substantial...
