Reward yourself for surviving this far into the working week by joining us here at the pub for a hunka hunka meaty love. Every week the kitchen will be cooking up a classic pub steak with all the works and serving it up for only 23 clams. That’s right, a Tuesday night steak dinner for only $23. That’ll have you roaring into the rest of your week!

We’ve even got our $20 parma deal to fuel the whole team, grab a pot of froth, fizz or glass of wine alongside a chicken or eggplant parma for the ultimate trivia feed.

    Fast and efficient service from both bar staff and the kitchen for meals. As usual a great Parma that is flavoursome and hearty. The 4 Pines Japanese Lager is a fabulous beer on tap. The downside is the Open Table App only offered Outside seating, but there were multiple tables inside that were not booked, and were available for the duration of my booking. Whilst these may have been booked, but canceled after my booking, the App does not provide for changes to bookings between outside and inside.

    Numerous rooftop tables are exposed to the weather and there is no option when booking to select an undercover table - this is a major drawback - which meant our lunch was in the rain. This booking was unfortunately when the AFL Gather Round was being played interstate so the venue was extremely crowded, but both bar and food service kept pace all afternoon.
    Corner HotelResponded 5 days ago
    Hi there, We always do our best to make sure all table bookings are protected from wet weather so we're sorry to hear this wasn't the case when you visited the Corner, it's definitely not the experience we aim to provide. Please feel free to reach out to us via email to discuss this further cheers, the Corner crew

    Really appreciate the ample gluten free options and the restaurant’s willingness and ability to prepare coeliac-friendly options. Portion sizes were fantastic and no one at my table was wanting for more. The sun was a bit bothersome at that time of night without shade to relieve but we made do. The casual and friendly ambience was very welcoming.

    Had a great time watching Super Bowl LVIII, even though my 49ers went down in OT. Food was great, service was excellent, would have preferred the coverage volume up a bit more as it was hard to hear some of the commentary over the chatting in the main bar area. Overall great day!!

    Food was great, beer was good and not awfully expensive, got plonked on the end of a table of six which was unfortunate because I marked my table as a date. Asked if I could move, manager was very welcoming and said she’d find my a spot inside but never returned, waited about 15 and left. It was still nice, understand it’s hard to get bookings on a Friday after all.

    It was so noisy that I couldn’t hear properly to talk with my partner. Also the QR code system for ordering at the table seemed disconnected for drinks. I ordered beer and wine. The beer arrived in a reasonable time but no wine. I went looking for it, and found a glass at the bar waiting to be delivered. The Bar staff showed me a tag which only had wine on it. I had preferred beer and wine and food all at the same time using table bar code. All staff were polite. They recommended ordering at the bar, rather than the bar code.

    We decided to book for dinner on the 31/12/2023 thinking a full menu was available at the time. Upon ordering we found out majority of the food on the menu was not available to order so that meant the selection of food available was very limited. This did make it a little more challenging when it came to dealing with food allergies within the group. If we had known the menu was limited we would have booked elsewhere.

    Very busy when we were there and were surprised that a few of our food choices were ‘sold out’ at 6pm. Whilst the food was delicious, we felt portion size was minimal for an entree, particularly the calamari. Still had a lovely meal.

    The setting was great. The menu was varied and not typical pub fare which was very good. The caramelised onion humus was more than enough to share for the three of us. Food was well priced.
