Quick Dinner

Popped in for a quick meal before comedy festival. Welcoming staff and meals were out in 15.mins. good size meals and quite good quality. Will be back but they need to do something about restrooms. No paper in any of them, absolutely disgusting stench and filthy!

The meals were huge and well priced. We had the chicken parma and the porterhouse steak as well as the chilli beef nachos (which was listed as an entree but was a meal in itself). Unless you are starving you might struggle to get through your meal but it's well worth the try. Big selection of beers on tap. It... More

Had dinner here before attending Strictly Ballroom at Her Majesty's Theatre as it was so conveniently close. Very nice food, generous servings, good value $18 special with a beer. Took a while to get served, but once food was ordered it was served quite quickly. Quite a crowd so had difficulty getting a seat inside but then discovered seating area... More

When we arrived in St Kilda we met up with friends , who brought us to the Elephant and wheelbarrow for lunch , To say the lunch was bad would be a understatement , when you order bangers and mash the least you expect are for the sausages to be cooked through , when i brought this up with our...

Stopped for lunch and had nice food and excellent brew (lots of interesting choices). Food portions are very generous, we had fish and chips and chicken parma, could have had just one and shared. Pub was very busy for lunch on a Sunday with both inside and outside seating. Helpful and friendly staff.

Called in for a drink on Tuesday 17th February while we decided where to go for a meal. The pub was busy with people having a drink after work or a meal before going out for the evening. Meals were being served which looked ok but when we spotted gammon and chips on the specials board we decided to stay... More

I had dinner on 19 February with three local friends. The placed was fairly crowded both inside and at the outside tables, but we found a table for four next to the downstairs fireplace. After two quit nice pints, we order food. One ordered the salmon, another the chicken parma ($23) and the third the Lancashire Hotpot ($20). No one... More
