Hastings, not known for its huge population or tourism pull, is now changing the game as more growing families join the area. In response to this, the Kings Creek Hotel has brought a family-friendly dining experience in a good old pub setting to the area.
The bistro is open 7 days a week, with lunch from 12pm - 2.30pm, and dinner from 5.30pm - late. It can get quite busy on Friday and Saturday nights so booking ahead is ideal, or coming in at 5.30pm on the dot may secure you a seat.
The bistro menu will treat you to pub favourites such as Chicken Parma, Surf & Turf, and Spag Bol. However, there are some other really great and different choices for those wanting outside the box such as Soft Tacos, Thai Salad, a selection of burgers, and loaded hot dogs. There is also a seniors menu available.
Possibly the most famous on their menu, however, is the 'Freak Burger Extravaganza', which features double beef patties, cheese, bacon, pineapple, mustard, relish & pickle. Coming with a side of chips and a chocolate milkshake, there is a reason they tell you this is 'not for the faint of heart.'
Kids are treated to a range of kids meals, which also come with a soft drink and tokens for the 'arcade section' of the pub. The arcade section, which is separate to the large playground, hosts a bunch of arcade games, both classic and new, to keep little and big kids entertained.
If you're looking for a family friendly pub with good meals and lots of different entertainment for kids of all ages in Hastings, Kings Creek Hotel is your new favourite place.
