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.

Helpful, attentive staff and pleasant atmosphere for a special birthday celebration. A menu with varied choices and flexiible ideas and suggestions for starters. Enjoyed by a multi aged group, from two to eighty-five!

Just popped in for quick dinner. They were very busy but our food arrived quickly and was exactly what we felt like.

We have a frequent arrangement with friends and this hotel has a very good menu, efficient staff, and good quality food. The servings are quite large and the choices surpass other hotels in the region. I recommend this hotel but you will have to book in advance

Just passing and decided to stop for lunch. We shared Bruschetta then my partner had Gnocchi with pear and watercress. I had salt and pepper Prawns with aioli, would definitely revisit.

We visited The Malvern Hotel for a late lunch today. We got to choose from the bar menu since we were in between lunch and dinner. The bar menu had lots of yummy choices, starter and main. All at affordable prices. Friendly staff and service. The steak sandwich was amazing!

Looking forward to revisiting an old haunt. Sadly the revamp is not great. Food was just average. Calamari salad was tasteless and had way too much cheese. The bruschetta was ok and the pâté was probably the best dish of the day. Place was quiet for a sunny melbourne Sunday. Don't think I'll be back again. Waiting staff not terribly... More

Caught up with some friends recently for lunch, arrived late (thanks Qantas) and the team couldn't have been more accommodating. Food was excellent, well cooked and full of rich flavours, well balanced wine list enabled us to enjoy a great Malbec and attentive staff who were good humor made the dining experience memorable. We stayed late and only had to... More
