We came here for the $15 Sunday roast, and it was ok, nothing special. The waiter was awful though, and clearly didn't want to be there. Shame, as it's our local and would definitely have had repeat business.

I hadn't realised the hotel had changed hands and arrived to a totally different experience...food was mediocre and the menu had changed...it seems the prices have gone up....a bit disappointed...the wine list and prices are still very reasonable...I will give it another try in 3 months...they may get it right give n time

Very good steaks cooked perfectly but prices are excessive for what is still a pub environment. Dinners are better value as the wines are reasonably priced.

The Bush Inn has recently been taken over and the new owners have scrimped on meals. Prices are up and the quality had gone down. No chicken breast in the chicken burger. Just chicken scraps that were fatty and tasteless. Menu is also much much smaller. Much better choices around prahran!

Went there for dinner; were served by an fantastic Irish waiter, very friendly and helpful, definitely contributed to our experience there. Food was very good, my sirloin was cooked perfectly and fries were fresh and crispy. My gf had pasta she said it was a bit oily, I tried it and I think I have seen worse. The only thing... More

Called in here tonight for a quick dinner. Great ambience. Had spring vegetable soup cheese bread, soup hot and delicious. Next Calamari with green salad and hand cut chips. Freshly cooked and oh so tender, great flavour. Will most definitely return. One happy traveller

Visited with a few work mates and tried one of the parmas. It was great! Tasty, a good size and well priced. I'll go back there add the price was good and the service was fine. Easy in the main bar though as it is cheaper and the food is the same from the same kitchen. The bistro just charges... More

This used to be an excellent steak house but recently they have changed to a Bistro which seems to be code for average food and higher prices. Their distinctive and delicious bread rolls are no longer available and bread is now an extra charge. My sirloin steak was ordered medium rare. It came over cooked and a bit chewy. The... More

The stakes at the bush inn are really quite nice, however the service can be a little hit and miss. An example being one of the waiters does not eat meat, and struggles to recommend off the menue. The home made bread is to die for however, and the wine list is solid
