In the neighbourhood on a go to to the northern suburbs and on the lookout for a fast lunch we stopped by the Beldon Tavern in Marmion Avenue. The lounge bar and eating room is comparatively small however snug and the partitions adorned with notices of the every day, nightly, weekly and lunch specials.
The drinks listing is pretty primary – the beers from the bigger mainstream breweries and the wine unspectacular to say the least – however they little question know their native market. We selected a glass of Jacobs Creek rosé whereas we awaited our meals.
The menu is what you’d anticipate from a suburban pub, with an emphasis of the pub classics – burgers, fish and chips, steaks, ribs and the like – hen parmigiana, beef and Guinness pie and salad of quinoa and haloumi have been our decisions.
The parmigiana hit all of the markers of this dish – good measurement, tender chook, loads of melted cheese and got here with chips and salad – good worth on the lunch particular worth.
The pie, crusty golden pastry encasing a wealthy gravy swimming with tender and juicy chunks of beef, was excellent – served once more with chips, salad and additional gravy on the aspect had Lady FWO glad certainly.
My haloumi salad definitely didn’t skimp on the grilled strips of cheese which was combined by way of nutty quinoa, inexperienced leaves, onion and tomato – nice and once more a beneficiant serve.
The Beldon is an effective native pub, serving strong meals, generously proportioned, nicely priced – the drinks record, particularly the wine – might do with a bit of labor I feel, however all in all we had a reasonably nice lunch.
