Called into Larrikins for dinner and two days later for lunch. Both meals were ordered at the bar and brought to our table. $10 for roast beef and $10 for battered fish, veg and salad. Both enjoyable, seating either in our out. not huge serves but enough. If you need more go the $5 dessert specials.

All the meals i have had at the Larrikin Hotel have been good. Mitch, who is the chef has no problem cooking a steak perfectly. The meals are fairly cheap and always good, not very big meals but enough for me.

Wish there were more pubs like this. Others should learn. Great service and the best freshest and value meal around. Basic menu but excellent value for money. Do yourself a favour support these people, they deserve it.

Loved the very friendly service, made room for my wife and I even though they had two big group bookings. The meals are very cheap but delicious. Popular with tourists as well as the locals. Good meal size and didn't need to top up on anything else.

What a great little pub. Refurbished only a few years ago, the pub is clean and homely in the dining area. Staff are very friendly and Bruce the owner is a top guy! I had the fish and chips with salad for lunch. It is very well priced at only $10. The menu is simple but effective. Would recommend stopping... More
