I celebrated my birthday with family and friends and the food was superb. There were 17 of us and everyone was very happy.

Disgusted with the attitude of bar staff when buying over $150 worth of drinks for a local Dads catch up. Will never go there again. Cannot believe the aggressive behaviour of 3 bar staff when I asked for a small discount given the $ amount we/I was spending.

I don't think anything will absolutely blow you away about this pub, but it is good local food, and wines, lots of variety, good upmarket (and some healthy) pub meals. I go frequently and I'm never disappointed. Friendly staff who are very helpful.

Service was slow and food took far too long to arrive. Meat was delicious though. Won't be going back in a hurry.

We have dined at the Malvern Hotel many times, since originally being introduced there at a group dinner. The food is always delicious, contemporary and fresh, and the service friendly. Far from your 'average pub'!

When my school friends and I catch up more often than not it is at The Malvern. The food is consistently good and the service attentive. Our lunch was once again a leisurely affair but that is not a problem at The Malvern.
