“Nice atmosphere but very dissappointing food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

We were excited to visit prahran hotel since we saw a recommendation in the news paper.
We arrived at midday sunday. There were only a few tables and we decided to sit one of the tunnel tables. It was very nice atmosphere and ordered our drinks - a glass of French rose was very good and then we ordered an entree - a set of 2 dips of egg plant and salmon was good but nothing special. Our main couse was seafood linguini - was just so disappointing with no taste, all very bland.we will not be back untill they have a new chef.

“Great vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic fit-out. Nice wine list .Pub food.
The reviews so far are a bit harsh - I had a great time.
When you have more security on the front door than main bar staff / I think that's mad - otherwise - fun spot

“What a Shame ... Great New Fit-Out .... Shocking Menu”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

Having watched with interest and amazing renovations to this local pub we were more than disappointed when we dined there last week. Vivacious friendly staff who bent over backwards to make us comfortable however the food left a lot to be desired. Really poor choices, long delay and the food was a total disgrace. Couldn't believe that the wines selection was so brief and so expensive ... it's a pub ... surely they could have a house wine for $25 a bottle ??? And what's with the 'Smoking Well' in the centre of the place .... glass doors left open and the smoke flowing into the dining room. Get your act together Mat. I had to telephone three times to make a booking before someone actually answered the phone!

“Great Reno, great staff, horrible food...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

3 of us went on a $13 steak or Parma night, and clearly, you get what you pay for. Steak had lots of gristle, mushroom sauce made with canned mushrooms (yuck), Parma was soggy (perhaps precooked and had sat too long or microwaved), and Buffalo wings with blue cheese dipping sauce ---- really??? Time to do some research on what a Buffalo wing is. These were deep fried crumbed wings with a sour cream sauce with a minute amount of blue cheese. Why bother? Disappointed all around.

Don't bother with this place they treat you like they don't want you there. Food is very average. Will not be returning
