Having recently undergone new management, The Archer Hotel also has a new menu. The selection of dishes on their new menu is quite vast, ranging from pub favourites such as Chicken Schnitzel to more "upmarket" dishes, some of which draw inspiration from Asian cuisine.

A great choice for vegetarians, the crumbed Swiss mushrooms in their Veggie Burger had the right amount of bite, set off nicely by the crisp crumb coating. Its flavour was complemented well by the chickpeas and the slightly sweet red pepper sauce helped to tie everything together. Served with the burger were chips and while they were crisp and fluffy, we thought the kitchen was a bit too heavy handed with the salt.

The fried chicken in their Fried Chicken Burger was juicy and it also had a bit of a spiced flavour from the spices used in its coating. The addition of pickles added a bit of sharpness, and the creamy Cheddar Cheese and Mota mayonnaise served to balance out its flavour. Aside from the chips, the Fried Chicken Burger also came with some Archer Sauce that the chips can be dipped in. This sauce had a flavour somewhat similar to tartare sauce.

We were pleased with the generous cut of steak in their Steak Sanga. The combination of bacon and caramelized onions gave the dish a delightful smoky flavour, with the chilli mayonnaise adding a bit of a spicy kick.

Great for those wanting a small meal, the quality of the Archer Fried Chicken was as good as the one in their Fried Chicken Burger. The Mota mayonnaise was a good partner to the chicken. The dish is notable for having ribbon-like sweet potato chips which had a delightful earthy flavour.

Aside from their dinner menu, The Archer Hotel also has a lunch menu with a selection of dishes costing only $15. The décor of the hotel gave the restaurant a cosy and rustic feel and there is street parking on the streets around the hotel.
