Perfect pub meal

Finally visited the ocean child and had one of their $10 pub meals - huge serving and it was great quality. I will definitely be back again! I had the seafood basket and my friend had the chicken salad for $12. Both excellent!

After not being greeted I ordered a beer went to the loo and then waited about 15 minutes for the bartender to finish her meal and finish watching television before my pint was pushed in fronts of me. Having worked in the industry myself a simple hello or how it going gods along way. The youth of today are obviously... More

We popped in here recently after hearing good things about the meals. Due to its reputation, we called ahead the day before and booked in for Saturday night. Even at 6PM, this place was seriously busy. I was a bit unimpressed with the tap beers on offer (average range for a pub) but took a look at the menu and... More

Happy hour(s) are well worth it with $6 pints and champagne between 5-7pm. The restaraunt was fully booked before we got there although the friendly staff managed to find us a seat. The food was ok. Large servings of counter meal parmis at pretty good prices. The food was a bit bland. If you're in Hobart in holidays and looking... More

Popular pub. Always busy. Great pub food, plenty of choices on the menu. Meals are well priced so good value for money. A short stroll from the city. Parking should not be a problem.

You can never go wrong with a cheap pub meal! Ocean Child have a great menu consisting of many favourite pub style meals such as parmies, steaks, seafood or a combination. The prices are all extremely good. I would definitely recommend the Ocean Child to anyone.

This pub is a very old pub that offers really well priced meals of very good quality. It is not for the 'fooderati' with imaginative swirls of 'dusts', 'froths' etc.. The meals are honest, quick (particularly at lunch time) and very tasty.

Cosy old world nautical décor. Hearty lunch. Prompt service. Lunched with business colleagues who all enjoyed the experience. Definitely on my list for a return.
