Time of day: The dinner shift
"Something something for everyone!"
Keep walking. Mind the dazzling and hypnotic magic eye themed carpet.
Some good food on offer at the QVH with a two page menu plus an extra menu for the kids. Some of the food on offer includes schnitzel, burgers, pizza, risotto, share plates, salads, even dessert. You'll also find a some good vegetarian options like a pizza, 2 different burgers, nachos, risotto, chips and salad. Sorry, vegans, you're shit outta luck.
After browsing over the multiple sections of food, each with a heading stating it was "something light" or "something simple" or something something, Burger Bot and I both decide on a burger, and there are a number of burger options to choose from. Char grilled vegie, sweet corn fritter, spicy chilli chicken, tandoori lamb, beef burger with the lot, roo burger and also a steak sandwich for good measure, all served with chips. Prices range from $14 to $17.
Burger Bot orders the Roo Burger - kangaroo fillet with roast tomato, caramelised onions, feta and rocket.
In usual Burger Bot form, the machine wastes no time going to work. It was difficult holding him off for long enough to snap up photo evidence of the burger ever existing.
Burger Bot - "Boop boop beep boop. It's nice to have the Roo on the menu, extra points for this! The roo steak was perhaps slightly overcooked but still enjoyable overall. Roo. I'm happy. Beep boop!"
I opt for the Spicy Chilli Chicken - spicy chilli chicken with sweet potato, cheese, tomato, lettuce and aioli.
The right amount of chips complement both burgers sampled tonight, and good chips too! Burger Bot had licked the plate clean before I even had a chance to comment on the meals before us. All round good reviews of food consumed tonight and we would have no problem eating other items from the menu on another visit. Oh, and kids under 12 eat free with the purchase of a main! Score.
The Vibe/Something else
It's hard to put one label on the QVH as there are many facets, there really is something for everyone. Whether you're after a nice meal, a refreshing ale, a catch-up with ya mates, a punt on the horses and dogs (real and digital), a spot to watch the sport, or breakfast at the front bar (wtf?), this could be the place. All this said, sometimes less is more, and it's a little bit confusing here, and that's why this pub doesn't get a top score.
The jerk-factor is low, thankfully, and you will have no trouble finding an ATM, clean toilet, PINBALL MACHINE (Scared Stiff "oh no you hit the crate!" & Indiana Jones), pool table for some stick-ball and faux fire (aka drunk proof fireplace). Smoke machine also available if you are into stick-ball of the cancer stick kind. Heaps of room in gambling alley for all young and old.
We'd be more at home upstairs or in the courtyard for a beer, meal or hit of the stick-ball, but if you're into betting, sport or eating breakfast while watching Willy Wonka take off in his glass elevator, you're set there too!
Three and half rubber chickens. You'll find us back at the QVH some time in the future!
