Was living round the corner so we decided to try this place out for a drink or two. The pub had a large indoor drinking area but also a great on street "terrace" - which was packed with young "studenty" types. The pub is a "locals" pub and very friendly. The staff were helpful, giving good advice on the local...

visit the Austral frequently and never disappointed they have an extensive vegan menu and are very vegan friendly. The eggplant parmy is the best on the menu, they also always have very good drink specials.

Wouldn't rush back, I guess it would be a good local and tourist pub. To be fair I didn't get to try the food. Just had a couple of drinks with the wife in the show we went to see. Cramming people into the tiny, tiny red room for a comedy show wasn't the most pleasant experience.

Friendly staff, great selection of craft and local beers available. Good deals all day . Great locations on the Main Street.Ice cold water on tap. Clean with a great atmosphere for all age groups and people. Inside and outside seating. Would strongly recommend a visit even for a quick afternoon beer.

A pub steeped in history. Old quirks are still present. Drink deals aren't very visible. Prices are high, welcome to tourist town!! Service is ok, if you know what you want. Impatience if you don't know what you're looking at. I'd go again though.

Great friendly staff who make us always feel welcome. Love the Salt and Pepper Squid and the awesome people watching that is an essential part of any visit to the Austral. We always have a really enjoyable time when we visit.

Has the $21 lunch special, Austral burger and a point. Lunch was tasty and filling and service was friendly and efficient. Nice hotel to sit outside on a sunny day to enjoy lunch and watch day go by. Well worth a lunchtime visit during the week.

I haven't stayed here so I can only comment on the venue and food. There is a tremendous range of beers available and I found the meals I have had here to be good value. I can recommend the schnitzel as a home made NOT that prefab stuff they deep fry in other places. Staff are friendly and the place...
