This Girl loves a good pub meal and that is exactly what Devotee and I found at the York Hotel.
The York sits unassumingly on the Old Main Road at Granton looking like an old country pub. Behind it's doors is an extension that houses the dining area that is serving up some quality meals. They also have an outdoor area that would be lovely on our warm Tassie days.
Their menu is what you would expect at a pub; steak, fish, chicken and schnitzels (that come in two sizes; standard and super). Along with a selection of burgers, pasta and some not so pub meal offerings such as crispy pork belly and lamb fillets.
Devotee had their porterhouse with chips (hold the salad) and gravy $29.90 while I chose the lamb fillets served with a medley of veg, the yummiest mash and a very tasty red wine jus that had just the right amount of rosemary, $24.90. We started our meal with their warm garlic cob loaf at $6.50.
Devotee was a big fan of their butchers paper table cloths and kept himself busy with some sketching.
There is something about a pub meal, the relaxed easy going atmosphere, the friendly service and you certainly get it at the York Hotel. For those of us that live in the Northern Suburbs, it is great to know that there are some alternatives in the outlying suburbs.
The York Hotel is at 622 Main Road, Granton. They get pretty busy so we'd recommend making a booking on 6263 6670.
