“Superb Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

On the western side of Hobart's centre is a great pub with incredibly good meals at a very low price. I visit regularly as you get a large serve of high quality freshly prepared food. No gimmicks and no conditions! The hotel is very well presented and clean. Tip: You can still get the $10 bar specials while sitting in the bistro, make sure you get the separate menu from your bartender!

“post airport lunchtime visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

My son returned from a short visit to Melbourne and we went to the Shamrock for lunch. We were welcomed by a very friendly young lady on our arrival and offered a table quickly. The restaurant bar here has black beer on tap which is brewed by Carlton and in my opinion should be served in many more of Hobarts many pubs and Inns.It is a terrific drop to be sure. We both ordered the beef burgers at $10 mainly because i wanted my gourmet son to experience the chips.Our burgers arrived soon after and were both massive and came with heaps of chips which were red hot and crispy on the outside.My well travelled son couldnt believe the size of his burger but declared it excellent.Neither of us could finish our chips but i know he will be taking his mates there for a feed in the near future. Incidentally the salads on the burger were all very fresh, crisp and plentiful.Well done again to the chef!!If only the city council
would relax the onerous parking charges this hotel would be even more packed out than it is.

“Best $10 Meal Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

Always a bit dubious about these meal offers but I had the best roast lamb and veg I've ever had in a pub and only $10. Friendly publican and an overall great ambience. My other half had rump steak and also gave it a big tick! The meals were plate fillers too, not a cheap looking offering. Would definitely go back next time we're in Hobart.

“Just what a pub should be like”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

Small and cozy with an open fireplace this pub was a joy to visit (so we went there two nights in a row). With $10 meals that were simple but well cooked (and ample serving sizes) you just cant go wrong. Between us we ate many of the $10 dishes and we were all very happy with our meals. The staff were all very nice and friendly, helping to create a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. We'd also like to thank everyone there for making all us North Melbourne supporters so welcome and recommend to other North supporters go to the Shamrock next time we play down in Tassie (and get the song going - we did!).

“Good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

Went in and ordered off their $10 menu.
Had a chicken schnitzel and my partner the fish and chips. All were good and for $10 you can't go wrong. They had about ten items to choose from on the $10 menu and although stock standard, if they are as good as the two we had well worth the visit.

The items on the regular menu are a bit over priced ($25-$35) for what they are but I'm sure are just as good.
