Good honest pub food

Consistently good food from the Ocean Child. Usually a good idea to book ahead as they are always full. Meals come in 2 sizes, small= normal, and mega= huge. Small around $10 and mega $20 at time of writing. Great value and the mega schnitzel is indeed massive. Steaks cooked nicely as ordered and... read more

Historical Hobart hotel built in 1844. Dining rooms lined with timber panelling for cabin effect. Pleasant staff. Well prepared food and plenty of it! Definitely on the return list!

This was my third time here for lunch and use this pub when visiting Hobart from the East Coast to get my car serviced at Tilford Motors. It is always very busy and no wonder because their food prices are amazingly low at $10.00 for a huge meal with plenty of varieties. You can even upgrade some meals to double... More

We met with friends for a birthday and it was a great choice of venue. The pub has a cosy old-fashioned ambience, the service friendly and prompt. The menu is not huge, but the best thing is the choice of small or large portions. I had the small steak with perppercorn sauce, which was a great choice: A nicely cooked... More

Book in early, took me 2 weeks to get in here. Massive meals (be sure to get half serve, wish I knew). Old style pub. Service was lovely. Would come again

Dropped in for the first time, we hadn't booked but they fit us in the bar which was fine as it has the old world charm and sunny seating. We both chose the $10 meals, one a chicken parmigiana, and battered trevalla. Didn't take long to come and the serve was generous. Meals were tasty, hot and we will definitely... More

Great food for great prices. If you love a good pub meal you won't be disappointed with this. Be sure to book ahead as they get really busy.
