This pub has so much character, with car number plates, old street signs and random posters decorating the walls. It was also the first pub in Tassie to serve Guinness. The decor is very busy and screams 'Aussie!'. We were recommended to come here for dessert, as I walked in I admit, I judged a book by its cover and expected to get a scoop of icecream and sprinkles... but I was so so WRONG! I looked at the menu and everything sounded delicious, as I walked past the bar, I noticed a wonderfully presented steak, that looked super juicy. The place was packed full of people and had a great friendly vibe.
I order the dumplings with honeycomb, baileys ice cream... It was presented beautifully, and tasted amazing! the Dumpling were doughy balls ofread more
We visited this pub twice on our trip to Hobart, but wouldn't have known about it if not for a recommendation from the owner/manager at Crumb Street Kitchen. We had a great dinner there and asked where we could go on a Friday night for drinks and dessert. It was a really cold night and the pub was absolutely lovely and warm, with a fireplace in front of the bar. We had some local beers and ordered a couple of dishes from their small dessert menu, and both desserts were divine. I had the upside down fruit tart with chai and orange ice cream, while a friend had the golden syrup dumplings with Baileys ice cream andread more
Our return visit to The greatest little Pub in Town. The extensive menu includes, blood sausage, lamb rump, pork belly, crispy goat, bobby veal, and paella, all prepared by a very experienced International chef. The dessert menu is to die for, including golden syrup dumplings with Baileys ice-cream and honeycomb, a Trio of berry, pistachio and coffee ice cream and vanilla creme brullee, with coffee soil and pistachio. We chose crumbed scallops with beer battered fries and salad, a perennial favourite; and crispy goat shoulder served with spiced chick peas, pumpkin and chick peas tendrils, for the more adventurous, and served in its own small frypan on a wooden block, looked good, tasted even better. Our desserts of golden syrup dumplings with Baileys ice-cream and honey comb, Vanilla creme brullee, with coffee soil and pistachio, finished the meal very satisfactorily, a memorable dinning experience. The excellent service staff contributed to theread more
"If your Irish come into the parlour"
The fist Hotel in Hobart to stock Guinness. A tremendous promoter and supporter, of all things Irish. Step inside and you could be in Galway. The walls are festooned with Irish memorabilia, creating a quirky ambience.
Huge log fire, no pokies, 18 beers on tap, No TV's, No juke box, but live music, 4 nights a week. Very close to Main St shopping. An extensive wine list, great food, plus large function rooms, and accommodation. It's all here and not just Pub Grub, but very affordable. We enjoyed the salmon special, crushed potatoes, turtle beans, zucchini & merlot vinaigrette. A very sophisticated plate. With a side order of sweet potato cakes, a perfect accompaniment. Crumbed scallops, with beerread more
