Location: Stones Corner
Overall Experience: 7/10
The Stones Corner Hotel is your friendly, local, daggy pub; and I must say, it works for them. Here’s an interesting fact, the area itself was named after the iconic pub; through the peaks and troughs of the suburb, the venue has remained a local favourite.
Their new menu encompasses traditional pub favourites with a twist of American Soul Food. Let’s face it, nothing beats some greasy pub grub washed down with a few brews.
So, here are some of the dishes that we got to try out before their official launch on Thursday (12th November 2015):
I am an absolute sucker for cheesy fries. These bad boys were topped with cheddar, bacon and chorizo crumbs. I enjoyed this dish, the flavours worked a treat, however the textures could be improved. The chips were thickly cut, and were slightly soggy rather than the crispy fries associated with cheese fries. Nonetheless still a pleasant option.
Mmmm, loaded nachos, with pulled pork, cheese and sour cream. That pulled pork was heavenly, in fact I wish they were more of it. I would also ask for some guacamole on the side to complete the dish. Can never go wrong with nachos and beer.
Saving the best till last, the impressive tower of goodness. The share plate that will not disappoint. Moreton Bay bugs, fresh prawns, natural Kilpatrick oysters, smoked salmon, crumbed prawns, calamari, scallops, battered fish, chips, salad & fruits. There is no better way to celebrate the Australian Summer; platter filled with seafood goodness, cold beers and mates. It’s all happening at the Stones Corner Hotel.
