Hotel Wright Street was renovated in 2011 and is notable as a pub that serves dishes typically seen at restaurants. We could not even find a burger on their menu. When dining there you can choose to sit either indoors or outdoors in the Cider Garden near the back of the hotel.

Offered as a special during our visit, the Marinara Risotto was cooked just right with the selection of seafood complementing the rice well. The tomato based sauce brought the taste of the ingredients together, with a bit of heat provided by the chilli used in the sauce.

While it is listed as one of the hotel's smaller options, the portion size of the Pork Belly Taco turned out to be pretty generous. The shredded pork belly was juicy and was partnered well by the fresh taste of the shredded lettuce. The use of the mole sauce, a Mexican sauce made from chilli and chocolate, gave the dish a distinct flavour.

A good twist of the typical meat pie, the filling of their Chicken and Porcini Pie was not too starchy, with the pastry encasing it having the texture we desired. Served with the pie were truffle smashed peas, rocket and tangy pickled mushrooms, all of which were great partners to the pie. There was also a topping of tomato relish to provide another layer of flavour.

The hotel has a clean, airy and serene atmosphere with the tables spaced a good distance apart from each other. If you want something different from the usual pub food, consider giving Hotel Wright Street a visit.
