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

What can I say. This is a well known pub for the locals and we support their efforts. Only the best quality ingredients are used and and rest assured flathead is indeed Flathead. Great steaks, plus happy hours in the bar thursday - friday 4-7 pm $2.5 pots and $5 wines. Ignore the doubters and ill informed reviewers here. This... More

Just up the road from where we were working, $10 - $15 meals that will well and truly fill you up. Friendly staff and super fast service.

Under the new management it is fantastic, the food is great honest pub tucker, heaps of it and reasonably priced, the service and happy friendly staff is second to none, the beer is cold, patrons friendly, and nothing is too...

We went here for our grandmothers birthday. There was 15 of us. Orders were taken quite quickly, Meals took a reasonable amount of time to come out (not too long, not quickly) My meal was fantastic. I very rarely eat everything on my plate when out for tea but this night was different. It gets very busy here so ensure... More

Gave this one a try last Thursday, but got to say our party of 7 were all pretty disappointed. Staff were friendly, food didn't take too long, but the steaks were very average and overpriced. $30 should buy a decent steak, but the chef would have known when he threw mine on the grill it wasn't going to be good....
