I did a review of the Carringbush Hotel when it first re-opened a few years ago, but I decided it was time for an update! I have visited the Carringbush many, many times over the years and even got takeaway from there whenever I could during Melbourne’s long lockdowns. So, it’s safe to say I’m a fan! Here are some of my favourite food options!
Fun fact: I used to be able to see the Carringbush Hotel through my old bedroom window, and never actually visited. More recently though, it’s changed hands, had a makeover and now features an entirely vegetarian menu and an excellent beer list. I knew I needed to give it a try!
I thought it was about time I made the next stop on the Pubs for Vegetarians tour, so we booked a table at the Retreat Hotel in Abbotsford using the Yumtable App. The app lets you search for tables at restaurants by location and then book directly through the app, which is super handy.
Japanese is by far one of my favourite cuisines, and is more often than not my go-to choice when trying to choose somewhere to go out for dinner. In fact, Japan in general is one of my favourite places which most likely started after we had Japanese student teachers live with us for up to 6 months a year for much of my childhood while they were on placement at my mum’s primary school (where she was the Japanese teacher!)
