A friend and I were keen to catch up for a quick lunch since we live at opposite ends of the city, so decided on a compromise location of the The Goody Hotel. It's only a couple of minutes out of the city on Goodwood Rd.

We entered the Hotel through the large modern Bistro which was fairly busy for a Tuesday, most of the clientele being around retirement age. The outdoor beer garden was also quite active, with umbrellas shading the decking area.

As the weather had been cool and wet, we opted for the large airy bar at the front of the Hotel. There was already a mix of customers, ranging from suits to blue collar workers eating on stools at the clean tables.

The bar staff were quick to ask for our orders and we both settled for beer to drink. By default we were served pints - not being frequent beer drinkers we probably would have preferred a schooner followed by a glass of wine, but it wasn't a big deal. The wine list offered a selection of sound choices including Grant Burge, D'Arenberg, Chapel Hill, and Pirramimma. All were well priced in the range $6-$8 per glass.

The food menu covered a decent range of popular pub food such as steaks, fish, and burgers, with a couple of less common option included too. We decided to take advantage of the Tuesday $10 special on schnitzels, opting for a chicken schnitzel parmigiana and a veal schnitzel with gravy.

Despite a steady stream of new arrivals the food arrived within 10 minutes of our order. It was well presented and included a modest portion of fresh crisp chips and a smattering of salad vegetables

The verdict? Tasty, quick pub grub at the right price. Fast service, and a good place for a quick office lunch. Or workers' lunch.
