Lord Melbourne Hotel located on Melbourne Street in North Adelaide is a family-owned business that specialises in offering pub-style and Australian dishes. The dishes shown here were from a function so portion sizes were larger than normal.

The grilled chicken in the Grilled Chicken & Rocket Pear Salad was cooked just right with a lovely degree of charred flavour. The generous amount of rocket provided an element of freshness and the walnut and pear slices added some crunch to the dish. The tangy taste of the dressing tied everything together, with shaved Parmesan adding a bit of saltiness.

The Aged Scotch Fillet was tender with sufficient charred flavour to make eating it a satisfying experience. Accompanying the steak was cocktail potatoes cooked just right, subtly flavoured with herbs. We had two sauces, a red wine jus and pepper sauce. The red wine jus had a slightly sweet taste and the pepper sauce had a good degree of peppery flavour.

The tiger prawns in the Herb and Garlic Prawns Linguine were fresh and of a generous size. For those concerned about the creamy sauce, it was actually quite light with enough garlic to provide a garlicky taste. Completing the dish was a sprinkling of shaved Parmesan to impart a slight salty taste to the dish.

As its name suggests, the Roasted Beetroot & Brie Arancini included beetroot to give the rice filling a pink tint. The rice was not too sticky and while brie was included, the dish did not taste too cheesy. Drizzled over the Arancini was a saffron aioli that partnered perfectly with it.

The meatballs were juicy and of a size to make eating them a satisfying experience. The tomato sauce that they were cooked in complemented them nicely. A topping of finely grated cheese added a touch of creaminess without overwhelming the other ingredients.
