We are thrilled to be featured in Qantas Magazine, as part of their Quisine section. Have a read of the article below.
“One of Melbourne’s first and finest gastro pubs, O’Connell’s hides its whitewashed good looks in a pretty inner-suburban backstreet and does a nice line in alfresco quaffing behind a wall of potted greenery. The colder months demand the smartened dining areas, replete with wainscoting and cricket memorabilia, where the Britishleaning menu suits the season.
Beef and Guinness pies with mushy peas leave the kitchen at an alarming rate, closely followed by beer-battered fish and chips, keeping good company with aïoli and a pickled onion – and the British Raj shines through with fried nests of cumin-accented onion bhajis and suckling-pig croquettes with curry mayonnaise.
Really, you could be in East London rather than South Melbourne – but the solid Aussie wine list will get your geographical references in order.”
