Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I am sorry but for the first time in my loyalty to Mollys and formerly the older pub, I have to say it failed on Christmas Day to present the experience of a life time with their Christmad lunch---- the food left a lot to...be desired we would have been better off with the standard menue, Molly oh sweet Molly you failed to deliver, and a formal complaint will be delivered on such............please please improve for next year.More

Husband and I came for dinner after a last minute decision to visit Devonport. This was close to our accomodation. Service with a smile and reasonably quick. Very casual atmosphere. Meals were generous and my lamb shank had more meat than I could eat. We...liked the drink specials.More

The food and the service was outstanding. Had the Sunday Roast Special. Lamb and beef just melted in your mouth, the food was hot and plentiful. I am always weary of pub roasts as the taste like cardboard but not here. Great job guys.

Came here to grab a quiet drink and some dinner. The bar was full of barflies, and was dim and dull. Walked through to the bistro and it looked like a venue from the 1990s. Kids everywhere, decor outdated and uninspiring. Had a drink (which...the bartender got wrong) and decided to spend our money elsewhereMore

My wife and I had our Christmas Day meal at Molly Malones, Devonport and it was fantastic. Congratulations to all the kitchen and serving staff, you were brilliant and the food was perfection. Well done to all. There was a glass of bubbly on arrival....Entree was a seafood taste plate of hot smoked salmon rillette, chilli and lime king prawns, Tasmanian scallop skewer with orange beurre blanc. Main was traditional grazing board for the table of turkey, baked ham, slow-braised lamb rump, roasted vegetables and honey buttered greens. Dessert was a dessert taste plate of mini plum pudding with brandy custard, white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake and a mini pavlova topped with berries. Brilliant meal and first-rate service. Top rate chef that made it all possible. 10/10!!!More

Our meal consisted of roast lamb & roast vegetables with broccoli, zucchini, carrots & cauliflower accompanied by tasty gravy & mint sauce. The meat was tender & the vegetables were cooked as we like them. We had a choice of sweets for the special Sunday...Roast meal. The profiteroles were first class. Overall we can highly recommend this restaurant for the food served to us.More

I hadn't been to Molly's for a while but our group of 5 adults and 3 children recently had dinner there on a Saturday night. Definitely glad we booked (for an early time) as about half an hour after our arrival it got very busy....Extensive menu to choose from and the meals came quite quickly. All the meals were very generous in size and, from all accounts, everyone's was delicious. I had the eggplant parma which was divine - crumbed eggplant topped with zucchini, pasta sauce and cheese and was served with chips (a lot!) and a side salad. I couldn't finish it all. Even the kids' meals were big (dinosaur nuggets and chips) and each came with an activity pack which kept the littlies well entertained. Friendly staff and very reasonable prices for the quality/quantity of food. Having been to other pubs along the northwest for dinner I'd rate Molly's as one of the best.More
