We shared the meats platter that says it is for two, and we were quite full--no need for anything else. All types of meats plus fries and salad--add your beverage and done. Steak was cooked to order and correct, lamb was well seasoned.

Visited pub twice while in Launceston. Best pub food by far while travelling Tassie for two weeks. Had the pork belly, good size and very tasty. Beers reasonably priced. Light filed and modern.
