I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.
An iconic Hunter Valley pub with authentic traditional decor. Suitable for all seasons with an open fireplace for winter and an outdoor terrace for warmer weather. The service has a relaxed atmosphere and the bar and waitstaff are friendly and helpful. Harrigan's Irish Pub and Accommodation is ideally situated for a family Hunter getaway. Located 2 minutes from the Hunter Valley Gardens and in close proximity to the shops of the Hunter Valley Gardens Village.
The menu is full of pub classics like fish & chips, and chicken schnitzels. Harrigans also have daily specials and promotions. 'Pie & Pint' Thursdays, Wednesday 'Ribs & Wings' and happy hours 4-6pm Mondays to Thursdays. Children's meals are available for $12.90 including a free activity pack and ice cream for dessert.
The beer paddle for $19 was great value as you got to sample 4 James Squires brews, and on returning the paddle to the bar you got to have a pint of your favourite ale. The Wednesday special 'ribs and wings' for $25 was great value, tasty and very filling. The lamb souvlaki was tender and delicious but I was not a fan of the fried Lebanese bread, it is much easier to fashion a kebab using soft bread.
