The Area Hotel is open late every night of the week and it stays open even later on the weekends. It's the kind of place that does public food right and the local patrons love the portions. The hotel was established back in 1930 and remains a place for locals to meet up over an icy cold beer. It has always been an entertainment venue. The Area Hotel has seen the likes of Illy, Pseudo Echo and Boo Seeka through the years. You may pop into the Area Hotel to see the next big Australian musical act. You can then tell everyone that you saw them before they were big at this highly-rated local. Patrons rave about the food at the Area Hotel. The hotel serves up classic pub food done right while it keeps an ever-changing menu of monthly specials to mix things up. The pork belly is especially good and lunch is an incredible deal. They call it the Hot Olive Bistro and it serves up two different menus -- the main menu and the sandwich menu. You can feast on rightly made schnitzel, parma, bangers, cod, lamb shank and something called a carnivore plate full of flamed grilled meats. This unassuming hotel will turn into your favourite pub after just a few beers. You will simply be amazed at how they keep doing the little things right time and time again.
