Located along Waymouth Street, the Raglan Hotel is a great place to enjoy a wide variety of pub foods. Some of their dishes are a bit different from that normally offered in other pubs. Aside from the Happy Hour between 4 - 6pm on weekdays in which various alcoholic drinks are offered at a reduced price, the hotel also features live music on Fridays from 4pm.

One of the more unique dishes offered here, the Stuffed Tomato features a mushroom risotto inside a roasted tomato, served with marinated broccolini, cucumber ribbons and balsamic vinegar. The risotto was cooked just right, with the earthy taste of the mushrooms complementing the slightly sweet tomato well. An element of freshness was provided by the broccolini, with a bit of tang from the balsamic vinegar.

Considered to be one of the "classic" pub dishes, the Chicken Schnitzel was of a generous size with a crisp, golden brown coating. Although it normally comes with chips, the Chicken Schnitzel we ate during our visit came with sweet potato chips, which had the sweet flavour we expected. The pepper sauce we chose to accompany the dish had the right degree of peppery flavour. However the salad could use a bit of dressing to make it more delectable.

While the coating of their Salt & Pepper Squid was a bit soggy, the squid was still cooked to perfection with the right amount of salt and pepper flavour. The squid came with a serving of garlic aioli to dip the squid in, if you like to add an extra element of flavour.

Great for a snack, their Potato Wedges had a fluffy texture with a bit of a spiced flavour. The generous portion size makes it ideal for sharing with friends. Similar to other places where wedges are served, this dish comes with sour cream and sweet chilli sauce dips.

We sat in a corner of the restaurant that still retains the rustic look, with bare brick walls, old fire place and wooden window frames. However, the bar and other areas have been renovated and have a modern look. Free street side parking is available after 6pm if you do not wish to pay for parking in the covered car parks near the restaurant.
