The Terminus Hotel is an unassuming little pub that takes its steaks very seriously. The menu boasts an array of high quality meat selections.
Both J and I have been looking high and low for a good steakhouse that would satiate our carnivorous desires and were hopeful that the Terminus Hotel would be “the one”. J's best friend H.R. (known for his doing it live philosophy on life), had recommended the pub to us.
250g sirloin grain fed with pepper sauce cooked medium with beer battered chips $33.90
300g scotch fillet grass fed with horseradish cream cooked medium rare with hand cut chips $36.90
The steaks arrived promptly and they were absolutely perfect. Both the steaks we ordered were cooked to the way we had requested – Medium and Medium Rare. Each steak was perfectly seared on the outside and beautifully juicy and pink on the inside.
It was evident that the meat sourced was of a good standard and there was great pride and care taken in the preparation of the simple-looking but outstanding dishes.
Vanilla pannacotta with passionfruit sorbet $9.90
Eaton Mess $9.90
The desserts were slightly pedestrian but enjoyable nonetheless.
