Last night, friends and I attended the Shamrock for $11 Parmie night. We ordered at 7.30pm, at 8.45pm our meals came out. The waitress told us "I looked out the back for you and couldn't see you so I've been walking around for 5 minutes with your meals" The garlic prawn Parmie was the size of a small Quail and... More

Quiet place with poor service. Small range of bistro meals that are cooked without much care or finesse but reasonably priced. Eating area not the cleanest and don't go there when it is raining without wearing a raincoat.

Tuesday night $11 Parmies....crazy selection to choose from! I usually avoid chicken when I eat out, not sure why but anyway ... so we hit the Shamrock for their cheap Tuesday Parmigiana. I was ravenous (having forgone lunch) and had considered ordering myself two Parmies. Glad I didn't because the Tropical Parmy I had was a decent size, and I... More

On the weekends kids eat free, so got them a kids meal which includes meal, drink and ice cream. Hubby and I settled on the Parma. He got... More

The Shamrock Hotel is great for a $10.00 lunch, it is not a place for everyone to eat at in the Public Bar but very entertaining for broad minded every day people, there is a Beer Garden Bistro out the back for families.

Nice pub with a very fairly limited food range. Nothing too Irish about the selections. Staff not overly friendly to strangers but seem to know most of the locals. Beer was served nice and cold
