Located along Pluteney Street, The Astor Hotel offers both pub style food and more "upmarket" Australian cuisine. Aside from their main menu, The Astor Hotel also has a selection of specials if you want something a bit different.

One of the specials available, the Pork Sirloin was cooked just right with a delectable char-grilled flavour that made eating it enjoyable. Accompanying the pork was creamy potato mash and onion gravy that brought out its flavour. The pear salad served alongside it balanced everything with its refreshing flavour.

Their Crispy Chicken Burger was lip-smacking good, with the crispy coating of the fried chicken contrasting wonderfully with the juicy flesh. The crisp coleslaw and Cheddar cheese served to enhance the flavour of the burger. Served alongside the burger was crisp and fluffy chips and chipotle mayonnaise that the chips can be dipped in to give them a bit of spice.

We were delighted by the generous size of the pieces of squid in their Salt and Lemon Pepper Squid, which had a bit of a tangy flavour coming from the lemon in the seasoning. The squid came with chips, a lemon to add some sharpness and tartare sauce. If you visit the hotel on Thursdays, this dish can be enjoyed for only $10 when you purchase a drink.

Much to our delight, the steak in their Steak Sandwich was cooked just right. Some restaurants have a tendency to overcook the steak, making them a bit too tough. The bacon added a smoky element to the dish and the slightly sharp taste of the mustard aioli gave extra flavour to the dish.

Great for starting your meal, the bread used in their Bruschetta Pomodoro was toasted just right and the combination of cherry tomatoes and roasted capsicum gave the dish a delightful slightly sweet flavour. The dish normally came with Parmesan cheese but we ordered the dish without it as my father does not like the taste of it.

A dish that you can expect to see at any Aussie pub, the Chicken Schnitzel was of a generous size with the perfectly cooked meat set off by the golden brown coating. The pepper sauce that we chose for the schnitzel was not too thick and had the appropriate degree of pepper taste. Other choices for the sauce are mushroom and gravy, with more "deluxe" toppings available for a bit of an extra cost.

If you decide to drop by the place for lunch, you get to enjoy a selection of dishes for only $12. The pub is spacious and has rooms along the side that are ideal for hosting your own 'private' dinner party. We enjoyed 25% our total bill by using our Entertainment Book voucher for Astor Hotel.
