    Staff are always friendly and the quality of the food is exceptional. I've tried both the pie floater and the beef cheeks, both delicious and I was tempted to lick the plate clean.

    The food was really good and the service was great so I would definitely go back again. We were held up getting there and I called them to let them know and it was all good.

    Great food. Nice to be near the fire and very warm. Good menu variety. Loved it and will definitely return! Changing for food sensitivities was not an issue.

    I know it's a pub but we had to do everything except bring out the plates of food! Staff were helpful with ordering and drinks but all from behind the bar. Beef cheeks were lovely.

    Great service from the friendly team as always. Just what you need in an inner city pub! Wine list full of very good examples of varieties at sensible pricing. Attracts a happy crowd!

    Food was good however we had to wait 1 hour for our meals. Very frustrating as we all had to go back to work. Many rushed to finish their meals and left while others were still eating.

    Good pub fare with a broad range of regular and craft beers, and a well stocked wine list.. Friendly staff & a nice front bar area in which to imbibe and watch the world go by.....if you have the time!

    Overall, the food was good, drinks were better, but it was very loud due to the big table adjacent to our group. Regarding improvements, I expected tastier crispier crumbing on the cauli, and more of it, as it was a $28.00 dish. The tofu needs some work: it was poorly seasoned and had no natural nutty soy flavour. I'd source a better quality tofu from Chinatown or the markets. It's not expensive, and when it's fresh it's really easy to sear and flavour. I also expected better presentation instead of two slabs in the middle of the plate, without any colour from being nicely, briefly seared, perhaps even marinated Chips that came with burgers were nice, and everybody that had a burger was happy. Chicken schnitz was also well received. Pizza and salads were good, just watch a little overseasoning on the funghi (but most people would probably prefer over to under). Score would be 7-8 if not for the cauli, tofu, and priceline that has you expecting a little more.

    A great place for a casual catch up. Great food and really good value for money. My pizza was HUGE!! I will certainly be coming back again. The menu has a lot of good options and I want to try them all!

    Whilst all the food was amazing we had put in a pre-order for meals to be ready at 12.40. Half the table got theirs around 12.50 and the rest of us around 1.05. The people that got theirs first were almost finished by the time ours came.

    The staff are always friendly and accommodating. The food is great and service is usually quick. It can get a little loud around lunchtime as very busy.

    The food was delicious and everyone at my table loved their meal. I had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly and delicious. The service was outstanding from the moment we arrived, nothing was too much trouble and we were even offered to move to another table when they realised we were near the door and people kept were going in and out a lot due to a function. Such a lovely gesture, which we really appreciated.

About the restaurant

Betray your local for the night and pop into the Union

Established in 1855, the Union Hotel has become a cultural landmark, known for pouring good drinks and putting up even better food. The outside still maintains an old-school charm, but the inside has been transformed into an up market dining and bar space. The main area is a classy sight; plush curtains hang in doorways and richly coloured fabrics cover low couches and mini stools. Centre stage however, is a giant backlit marble bar, boasting a huge collection of top shelf spirits, multiple beers on tap and a wine list dominated by South Australian makers - of course!

The menu too is something special, ranging from the traditional pub plate to spectacular modern Australian creations. So, get down here if you’re in the mood for a pub meal with a touch of class.

Best Dish: roasted Murray Valley pork belly with turnip croquettes, carrot puree, apple kimchi & yuzu mustard
