We decided to have dinner one wet summers evening. The menu is interesting as the same meal is served in 3 different sizes $10 (small) $15 (normal) and $30 (MEGA). I had the special of the day which was grilled Trevalla with steamed vegetables. These included cauliflower, broccoli, red cabbage, snow peas, carrots and mashed potato. My partner had the... More

I had the smaller $10.00 chicken parmigiana - but the size was perfect for me. My husband had the Mega surf & turf, and even though I... More

Went here for dinner. What a surprise. Doesn't look much from the outside but it was a great size meal for the price! Yes, pub food but pub food done well is always top of my list. We had a mega porterhouse, a mega Tasmanian Scallops and a mega seafood. We'd been traveling all day and needed real food and... More

OMG, a $10 meal that was absolutely fantastic! Last night, I had Chicken Schnitzel which to be truthful I did not even need a knife for it was so tender! I then had, a to die for Apple crumble. This is truly one of Hobart’s best kept secrets! The staff there are really nice, and service is quick! Loved it!

Good value lunch; $10 chicken parmigiana for my wife and a $12 porterhouse steak for me, both with chips and a basic salad. Well-cooked, super fast, friendly staff.

Don't bother, there are much nicer places around. We were here with 11 people, finished our meal around 9.30pm on a Saturday night and they couldn't push us out fast enough! Also no split billing and if you do want to pay separately they will charge $2.50 per transaction! Food average, lots of sauces and soggy veggies but the worst... More
